Sweet Treats: Easy Cinnamon Rolls

I adore baking and find any excuse to throw some ingredients together and create something delightful! This is a recipe I spotted whilst perusing a recipe book that I have from when I lived in Morocco. It is one that the Peace Corps put together and its stocked full of easy recipes using the things you've got in your cupboard. Anyone can give this recipe go for a nice weekend treat!
  • One Pkg. Yeast                             
  • 1/4 C Warm water (not hot!)
  • 1/2 C Sugar
  • 1/2 C Oil 
  • 1 Beaten Egg
  • 1 C Lukewarm Milk
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 4 1/2 C Flour
  • 1/2 C Melted Butter
  • Brown Sugar
  • Cinnamon
Dissolve Yeast in the warm water in a large bowl without stirring. Then add the following six ingredients and mix. Knead on a well-floured surface. Roll out into a rectangle. Top with the melted butter and sprinkle generously with brown sugar, lightly with cinnamon and white sugar. Roll up the rectangle into a roll and cut into slices with a greased string or butter knife. Place on greased baking sheets and cover with a towel until risen to double the size (30 mins-1 hour). Bake at about 170degrees for 15 minutes or so until brown. Do not overbake!
