Quick Caramel Dipped Cinnamon Rolls


Breakfast is one of my favorite meals to prepare and this recipe, from a vintage Watkins Cook Book, is now on the list of quick favorites.

Butter baking pan and preheat oven to 400 F.

Stir together 3 cups flour, 6 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt and 2 tbsp sugar. Cut in 4 tbsp butter, then mix in 1 egg and 3/4 cup water. Blend the ingredients and knead quickly till dough comes together. Roll out on floured board to 1/2 inch thickness. Spread with soft butter, sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over to your liking and raisins too. Roll up and let sit while you make the caramel syrup.

In a small saucepan, melt together 4 tbsp butter and 1/2 cup corn syrup (alternately brown rice syrup or honey).
Cut roll in 2 inch thick slices and place in baking dish. Pour caramel over the top of prepared rolls or dip each one into it. Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes. Num. Num. Eat.

I made these cinnamon rolls this morning and the kids have requested a repeat for this weekend when Dad is home to enjoy them too. Thank you!

I woke up this AM wondering what to make for breakfast (we are all home sick) and this popped to mind. Thanks for sharing. It's in the oven baking now and I'm sure it will taste great. I substituted pecans for the raisins.

Looks really delicious. Few things say "I really love you" from the kitchen like homemade cinnamon rolls do. :)

These look wonderful!! I have had an over abundance of caramel sauce due to a lack of hardening! Now I know what to do!!

Thank you for sharing!!
