Cinnamon Roll Dough - milk - yeast - granulated sugar - butter - eggs - all-purpose flour

Add yeast and sugar to warm milk in a large bowl. Stir gently to combine and allow the yeast to foam to proof.


Once the yeast has proofed, stir in melted butter, salt, eggs, and flour into yeast mixture. Gently mix until well-combined.


Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10-12 minutes. Form the dough into a large ball and place into a large buttered glass bowl.


Cover lightly with plastic or with a tea towel and place in a warm location free of any drafts. Allow to rise so that the dough is doubled in size.


Place dough on a large lightly floured surface and roll to a 1/4 inch thickness. Spread softened butter over the top of the dough.
