Cinnamon is the very first dessert I have tasted in US, and its my no.1 favorite dessert too.
It tastes best when it served warm with a loads of cream cheese frosting.. I love 'em... Cinnamon bun is originated in Sweden and named as Kanelbulle(meaning - 'Cinnamon bun') Sweden celebrates October 4th as a cinnamon bun day.
I made the cinnamon rolls using the ready mix from a leading brand, it turned out really well. I also kept only half hour waiting time for the dough to rise.

Base Ingredients:
1/2 cup Luke warm water, 1 egg, 2 cups dough mix (contains the mix of 2 cups flour and 1/8th sugar and pinch of salt), 1 tbsp active yeast.
Extra spoon of all purpose flour for kneading.
Blend egg and water , add the dough mix and yeast till it forms a dough. Use flour for kneading and to remove stickiness from hand.

Cinnamon Topping Ingredients :
1 cup brown sugar, 1 tbsp cinnamon powder, pinch salt, 2 tbs unsalted butter.

kneading is the key to get soft cinnamon rolls. Knead well till it gets non sticky in hands,
transfer the dough to lightly floured surface and roll out the kneaded dough to a rectangle.
Spread 2tbsp butter and sprinkle generously the cinnamon topping on the surface, Roll up the rectangle dough in to a tight cylinder and cut in to small slices and place in a greased pan with distant from one another. Cover with foil and let it stand for 30 mins to rise. Pre-heat the oven to 400F and cook for 17 mins.
Remove from oven and coat with cream cheese frosting or with plain icing,
Cream cheese Icing Ingredients:
1/4 cup cream cheese, 3 tbsp milk, 11/2 cups white-powder sugar.
Serve warm with a hot cup of coffee :) .. Yummm Enjoy!!
