 Ingredients List

  • Cinnamon Roll Dough
  • 1/4 cup (59 ml) lukewarm water
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup (56 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups (188 grams) all-purpose flour
  • Filling
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, for sprinkling


In a large mixing bowl, sprinkle the yeast on top of the lukewarm water and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes. Stir in the melted butter, sugar, lightly beaten egg, and salt. Add the flour gradually until incorporated.

On a lightly floured surface, turn out the dough and knead until elastic (about 5-7 minutes). If the dough is too sticky to work with, add more flour until the dough becomes workable, but be careful not to add too much or the rolls will become tough. Alternatively, you may use a stand mixer to knead the dough using the dough hook attachment.

Cover the dough with a clean dish towel and allow the dough to rise in a warm location for 1-2 hours or until the dough has doubled in size.

Punch down the dough and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out into a 15 by 12-inch rectangle.

In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, cinnamon, melted butter, and salt until uniform. Spread the cinnamon filling evenly over the rolled out dough, keeping a 1/2-inch border around the edges.

Begin rolling the longest sides of the dough rectangle towards the center so that they meet in the middle. Using a sharp knife, cut off the ends of the dough and toss. Continue cutting the roll into 1/2-inch thick segments.

Place the cookies on a parchment-covered baking sheet at least 2-inches apart and cover with a kitchen towel to rise until doubled in size (about 20-30 minutes).

Preheat oven to 375 F (190 degrees C).

Sprinkle cookies with granulated sugar and bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until the cookies are golden. Allow to cool slightly before digging in.
