Sunday Morning Cinnamon Rolls

Sunday Morning Cinnamon Rolls 013

This is one of my favorite cookbooks. The recipes in here don’t contain anything I can’t find, except maybe an elephant… My family has loved everything I’ve made from it. Amish aren’t known for their exotic flavors, so these recipes are fairly easy to add your own special touch too.

Sunday Morning Cinnamon Rolls 001 Since we had our fellowship/church last night, I thought it would be fun to bless my family with Sunday Morning Cinnamon Rolls.

Here’s what you need:

1/2 cup sugar (organic evaporated cane juice if you have it)

1/2 cup shortening (you can use softened butter as well, I used organic shortening)

1 1/2 tsp. Salt

1 cup milk, scalded

1 cup lukewarm water

2 pkgs. dry yeast ( I used 2 tbsp. bulk yeast)

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 tsp. nutmeg (optional-but very tasty!)

7 cups flour (I used unhealthy white, but I have used wheat with this recipe in the past or half and half)


6 Tbsp. melted butter

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

1 Tbsp. cinnamon

1 cup raisins (optional)

1. In a large bowl, combine sugar, shortening and salt. Scald milk and pour over shortening mixture.

2. Combine yeast and warm water and set aside to dissolve.

3. When milk mixture has cooled, add beaten eggs, dissolved yeast and nutmeg. Beat well.Sunday Morning Cinnamon Rolls 002

4. Gradually add flour, beating well. After about 5 cups, I changed implements and used the dough hook. Set the timer for 5 minutes and let the kitchen aide do all the hard work of kneading the dough!

5. Set dough in a greased bowl, cover and allow to double. Recipe says it takes 2 hours, but I only gave it 45 minutes.

6. Place slices 1” apart on greased baking pans. Let rise for about an hour. I think it only took 20 minutes actually.

8. Frost with a powdered sugar glaze if desired.

9. Enjoy all the joyful sounds of your children’s thanks and your husband’s praise and the quiet that follows because everybody is too busy eating to talk! Yum Yum!
