DifficultyBeginner
Yields24 Servings
Prep Time30 minsCook Time25 minsTotal Time2 hrs 25 mins
Total cooking time includes prep, cooking, and rising time.

Ingredients
 2 cups Warm Milk
 1 cup Warm Water (warm not hot, hot will not let your yeast rise)
 4 ½ tbsp Yeast or 2 Pkgs.
 ½ cup Lard
 ½ cup White Sugar
 7 ½ cups Flour
 1 tsp Salt
 1 Egg
Filling:
 2 cups Brown Sugar
 3 tbsp Cinnamon
 Whipping cream or full fat cream, add enough to the above mixture to make a creamy paste.
 Optional: Raisins or nuts, add to your heart's desire!
Cream Cheese Icing:
 16 oz Cream Cheese
 ½ cup Icing Sugar (also known as powdered sugar)
 3 tsp Vanilla
 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
Directions:
1

In your mixer or bowl place your lard in, then add your warm milk and water.

2

Sprinkle yeast over top, then sprinkle your sugar.

3

Add flour and salt, then start mixing with a large spoon or dough hook if you are using your mixer.

4

Once some of the flour has been incorporated add your egg, you just want your warm liquids to have been cooled enough to not cook your egg.

5

If you're mixing it by hand you will need to switch to using your hands to get the last of the flour incorporated. Once your ingredients are all incorporated into the dough set aside on a warm oven. Cover and let rise to double the size, approximately 1 hour.

6

On a lightly floured surface roll out into a large rectangle, approx. 24"x36" but this does not have to be a perfect rectangle! Spread filling onto rolled out dough and then roll into a log.

7

Cut the dough in half, then your two halves into halves again so you end up with 4 dough logs.

8

Cut each dough log into halves again, then into thirds. Each dough log will give you 6 Cinnamon buns.

9

In 2 9x13 pans, place 12 rolls in each pan. 3 across by 4. Cover with a tea towel and let rise again until double or it just fills the pan. Approximately 30-40mins.

10

Bake at 350' for 25 minutes.

11

For your icing, mix together the first three ingredients with your hand or stand mixer. Slowly add your cream in while mixing until you have a nice creamy consistency.

12

Spread icing over warm cinnamon buns and enjoy!
