One Hour Cinnamon Buns

These one hour cinnamon buns are a favourite in this house!  I love how they literally take one hour start to finish for the most light and fluffy cinnamon bun. 

1 package instant yeast (2 1/4 tsp) 
2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp salt 
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup sugar 
1 egg 

1/4 cup soft butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp almond extract

1.  In the bowl of a mixer, combine flour, yeast and salt. 
2.  In a small microwave safe bowl, combine milk, water, butter and sugar.  Heat until mixture is hot and butter is almost melted (about 1 minute).  Gradually add the warm mixture to the flour mix while the mixer is on slow.   Add the egg and mix until a soft and sticky dough forms.  Let mixer run for about 4 minutes.  
3.  Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
4.  Knead by hand for 1-2 minutes.  Cover the dough with plastic wrap and allow it to rest for 5 minutes. 
5. Once the dough has rested, roll it out on a floured surface until it measures a 16x9 rectangle.  Spread the soft butter over the rectangle.  Mix the rest of the filling ingredients (brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and almond extract) together in a medium sized bowl.  Spread the filling over the top of the large rectangle.  Tightly roll the dough, starting at the long edge, and cut into 12 pieces. 
6.  Place rolls into a greased 9x13 baking dish and cover with foil.  Turn OFF your oven and place the covered rolls inside to rise for 25 minutes. 
7. Remove from oven and turn the oven ON 375.  Once heated, remove the foil and bake the rolls for 15-18 minutes or until the centers are lightly golden brown in colour. 
8.  Remove from oven and allow to cool before frosting.  

So most of our family enjoys pecans in their cinnamon buns so this is a little trick I do :)  I put a little pile of pecans on the baking dish and then place the cinnamon roll onto of the pile. 

You can use a Vanilla glaze frosting for these buns or we love a cream cheese frosting!   And be sure to enjoy these warm with a hot cup of coffee...or tea.
