Debbie’s Homemade Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

This past weekend, our family got together and had a Sunday Feast.  It had been months since we’d all done dinner with Debs, so we decided to go all out.  On the menu? Homemade Lasagna, Homemade Alfredo, Parmesan Bread, Salad, Zuchinni, and Cinnamon Rolls.  We stuffed ourselves silly!

Since Debs’s Homemade Cinnamon Rolls Recipe is quite popular amongst the family (and old Hermosa Vista Art Masterpiece Students), I thought it would be a fun one to share with our Fancy Readers!



  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 ½ tablespoons yeast
  • 4 tablespoon oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups of hot water
  • 10-12 cups flour

INGREDIENTS {filling}:

  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons cinnamon (Add more if you like-I do!)

INGREDIENTS {cream cheese frosting}:

  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter-softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk (or canned milk if you want it extra creamy)

Substitute: If you don’t want to use cream cheese substitute with ½ cup butter.


  1. Place the first three ingredients into a bowl and allow yeast to rise. While it’s rising put the oil, salt, eggs, and hot water into a Kitchen-Aid or Bosch style mixer using the dough mixing attachment.
  2. Then add the yeast mixture to the mixer. Slowly add in the 10-12 cups of flour- 1 cup at a time. Add flour slowly until the edges of the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  3. Remove dough from mixer and place  in a greased bowl.  Cover. Let the dough rise until it’s doubled in size.
  4. Create a  34 x 21″ size dough by rolling it on a floured board. Use the cup of softened butter and spread it (either with your hand or a knife) on the dough.
  5. Use a separate bowl to combine and mix the brown sugar with the cinnamon.
  6. Sprinkle the cinnamon mixture on top of the buttered dough. Grab one end of the dough and roll it up very tightly (like a sleeping bag). Use a knife to put indentations in the dough at every 2 inches. Go back and cut the dough in pieces, using your indentations as “markers”.
  7. Put each piece on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Lightly press down on each piece with your hand. Let the pieces rise one more time.
  8. Bake the rolls for 15 to 20 minutes, at a temperature of 350 degrees F. Remove from the oven when they are a golden brown color.
  9. Allow to cool and then spread with cream cheese frosting.

    Alexa - On that note, approximately how long will it take for the dough to rise?
