The best cinnamon rolls you've ever tasted! Big, fluffy, soft, gooey deliciousness, and a secret ingredient: our Astor Apiaries Clover Raw Honey. You'll stop going to Cinnabon after you try out this recipe!
  • 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 cup lukewarm milk
  • 2 tsp sugar

Cinnamon Roll Dough

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted

Honey Vanilla Glaze

  • In a large bowl, combine the yeast, lukewarm water, and 2 tsp of sugar. Mix together well and let sit for 5 minutes.  It will become foamy if the yeast is alive!
  • Once the yeast has been activated and is foamy, add in the eggs, softened butter, sugar, and salt. 
  • Mix in the cinnamon.
  • Using a dough hook, slowly start adding in the 4 1/4 cups of flour. 
  • The dough is ready when it bounces back when touched and is well combined and not sticky. 
  • Allow dough to rise for about an hour until it is doubled in size.  (You can also use your pressure cooker to make rising time quicker - see post for details!)
  • Preheat oven to 350°

Cinnamon Filling

  • Melt the 4 tbsp of butter in a heatproof bowl.
  • Add in the 1 cup of brown sugar and the 3 tbsp of cinnamon. Mix well until it is all combined.
  • Set aside - once the dough has risen, punch down the dough and roll the dough out into a long rectangular shape.  (If the dough is sticky, you can use a small amount of cornstarch or flour to prevent it from sticking.)
  • After it is rolled out into a rectangular shape, spoon out the cinnamon filling mixture over the dough, spreading it to be about an inch away from all sides.
  • Starting from the shortest side, roll the dough until it is completely rolled.
  • Using floss slice into 12 rolls (about 1" to 1 1/2" thick).
  • Place in greased dish with sides touching.  Allow rising for about 30 minutes.
  • Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes - until the tops are slightly browned and they're not doughy.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool 5 minutes before pouring on glaze.

Honey Vanilla Glaze

  • Prepare glaze but mixing the 2 cups of confectioner's sugar, 4 tbsp of milk, 1 tsp of vanilla, and 1 tsp of honey.
  • Mixed until well blended.  If the glaze is a tad too thick add 1 tbsp of milk at a time.
  • Drizzle the glaze over top of the cinnamon rolls after they have cooled for at least 5 minutes.
