I finished the companion piece, Bernie Bunny in time for Easter. This went along with Bridget Bunnie from The Sweetheart Tree.
I woke up early and made the cinnamon rolls so we would have a nice treat while watching General Conference on TV. This is a favorite recipe and always turns out.
2 1/2 cups warm water +
2 T. or 2 pkg yeast
Add 3/4 cup sugar and set aside for 5 minutes
1/2 cup melted butter
1 tsp. salt
Gradually add 7 1/2 cups flour. (Or enough to make a slightly sticky dough)
Turn out onto a flour surface and knead. Place dough in a greased bowl and let rise until doubled in size.
Punch down and roll out into a rectangle. (I split the dough in half)
Melt 1/2 cup of butter
Mix 1 cup of brown sugar with 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon.
Brush dough with melted butter and sprinkle sugar/cinnamon on top. (You may add raisens or nuts if your family likes.)
Roll up and cut into about 1 1/2 slices. Put on a greased baking sheet. Let double in size. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.
Frost with a butter cream frosting of Cream Cheese if that is your preference.
