  • One Hour Cinnamon Rolls …super soft and absolutely delicious!

    One of all my time favorite thing to make around the holidays is cinnamon rolls (and my sweet orange rolls). They are so fun to make with my kids and are such a yummy treats. Let’s be honest though… sometimes they just take way too long though! I’ve finally come up with a recipe that tastes just as yummy and they are done in half the time.

    You can make these cinnamon rolls in one hour (okay plus a few minutes). They are perfect for my family of 4. We really don’t need more than 2 cinnamon rolls each …so 8 is the perfect amount! Feel free to double it though if you have a bigger family or just want to indulge. ;)

    The frosting is really what makes these cinnamon rolls divine, so make sure to slather it right on top!

    These easy and delicious cinnamon rolls are similar to the recipe used in my Orange Sweet Rolls. I adapted it from there and the dough is just as soft and yummy.

    One Hour Cinnamon Rolls ...super soft and absolutely delicious!


    • 1/3 cup warm water
    • 1 Tablespoon highly active yeast
    • 1 Tablespoon sugar
    • 1/4 cup butter melted
    • 1/4 cup warm milk
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 to 2-1/2  cups flour more or less as needed


    • 5 Tablespoon butter softened
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar
    • 1 Tablespoon  cinnamon


    • 1/4 cup salted butter softened
    • 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 Tablespoon milk


    • In a small bowl add warm water, yeast and 1 Tablespoon of sugar. Stir, and cover with a paper towel. Let sit for about 5 minutes until bubbly.
    • In a large bowl stir together butter, milk, sugar and salt. Add yeast mixture when ready and stir until combined. Add one cup of flour and stir until smooth. Add the remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time. Knead for 1-2 minutes. If the dough is too sticky you can add a little more flour.
    • Once dough is nice and soft, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in a warm spot. Allow dough to rise for about 20 minutes. If it’s a cool day warm your oven to 200° with a small pan of water, turn it off and set the bowl in there to rise.
    • While dough is rising, make the filling. Combine the butter, sugars and cinnmon in a small bowl.
    • Once your dough has risen, punch it down and roll out on a floured surface. You want to form a rectangle approximately 10×12 inches. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Spread filling onto the dough with a brush and then roll the dough up. I did not use all of the filling. Cut the dough into one inch pieces with floss or a large knife. Place dough onto a buttered pie dish with rolls about 1 inch apart. Let rolls rise for about 15 minutes.
    • Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
    • While the rolls are cooking beat together the frosting ingredients in a large bowl and then spread on top of the rolls. You can add more milk or powdered sugar to reach your desired consistency.
    • Enjoy!
