The Best in the World Med Student Cinnamon Rolls from Amanda Cracroft with a fun story

I had a great time at recipe club last night! Here's the recipe for the Cinnamon Rolls...

i forgot to tell you the story that went along with this recipe. I got it from a good friend of mine in Utah, who's a nurse and was teaching at the University of Utah med class... they had an early morning study session and one of her med students (a MAN!) brought these Cinnamon Rolls... she was super impressed (cause SHE is an amazing baker!) and she asked WHERE he got them... he said "I made them!" she laughed and said.. "you mean your wife made them?!" he said, "Nope, i made them, they are my own recipe, i worked in a bakery all through college and created this recipe!" then he shared it with her... and SHE shared it with me... and NOW i share it with you!

If that guy doesn't make it as a doctor... maybe he'll open a bakery!

4 eggs

2 1/2 c warm water

3/4 c sugar

2 tbs yeast

1 c semi-melted butter

ADD and mix, then knead:

7 1/2 c flour

2 tsp salt

let rise 20 minutes

roll out into a rectangle

pour on about 1/2 c butter

spread on brown sugar/cinnamon mix :cinnamon such that it tastes like it is almost too much)make it uniform and more that you would think. (I used 1 c brown sugar and 2 Tbs cinnamon)

roll into whatever size roll you desire. (He would make 16-24 rolls I made 30)

let rise about 25 minutes

bake these at 350 for about 14-17 minutes

let them cool about 5 minutes before frosting and frost such that they are completely covered so they don't dry out.

General frosting idea:

soften 1/4 c butter and 2 Tbs cream cheese until both are nice and soft, mix together

add in about 3 tbs of milk and 1 tsp of vanilla, mix like crazy

add in enough powdered sugar to make it about as thick as good cake frosting
