Cinnamon Rolls with Browned Butter Frosting
- 1 ½ Tbsp Active Dry Yeast
- 3 c milk
- 1/2 cup butter
- ¼ cup shortening
- 1 cup instant potato flakes
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 Tbsp salt
- 4 eggs
- 7-8 cups Lehi Mills Turkey Bread Flour
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 3 Tbsp ground cinnamon
- 1 cup butter, softened
Brown Butter Glaze
- 2 sticks butter
- 4 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- ½-3/4 cup whole milk
- Mix yeast with ¼ cup warm water and ½ tsp sugar in a small bowl. Set aside and let sit 5-10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, heat milk in a medium sized bowl and mix in the butter and shortening. Add the potato flakes, sugar, and salt. Let sit on the countertop until it cools slightly.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat 4 eggs and add the above milk mixture. Make sure the milk isn’t too hot but is warm. Add the yeast.
- Mix on low speed and slowly add the flour until the dough pulls away from the sides of the mixer. Sometimes it might need all 8 cups, but sometimes you will only need 7.
- Let the dough rise in a warm place for one hour or until doubled in size.
- While the dough is rising, make the filling. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and set aside
- Divide dough in two equal balls. Roll out one ball on floured countertop into a large rectangle until it is uniformly ½-inch thick.
- Melt 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter in a bowl. Spread across dough with a pastry brush. Sprinkle half of the brown sugar cinnamon mixture across the dough evenly.
- Roll the rectangle lengthwise and slice into 12 even slices. Each slice should be roughly 1-inch thick. Place 12 rolls on a greased or lined cookie sheet.
- Repeat for the remaining dough.
- Let both pans of rolls rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
- Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until cooked through and light golden.
- Make the glaze. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat until browned, but not burned. Combine with the powdered sugar, vanilla, and salt. You might have to add more milk or powdered sugar to reach your desired consistency. Save any leftover glaze
- Frost the cinnamon rolls when cool. Enjoy!
