Nanny’s Cinnamon Rolls


Hot Cinnamon Roll on a cold fall morning……

What is more divine than that…???? As the Food Nanny I enjoy cooking all year round. Fall time just happens to be my favorite! I love the change of seasons. In the fall I enjoy one pot dishes.. soups, chili’s and stews served with HOT BREAD! Years ago when I started Food Nanning I found people were scared to make breads. I love teaching and sharing my bread recipes.

Nothing makes a home feel quite as warm as HOT BREAD! I encourage you all to get in the kitchen and get your hands dirty. Start trying some of my delicious bread recipes! Homemade Cinnamon Rolls are not hard! XOXOXO


1 cup shortening, butter or margarine (your preference)
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs beaten
½ cup milk
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
3 tsps baking powder
3 ½ cups flour plus another ¼ to ½ cup for rolling



Blend butter, sugar. Add eggs, milk, salt and vanilla and stir. Add 3 ½ cups flour….a cup or so at a time. Sprinkle ¼ cup flour on the counter….and knead dough lightly until mixture is easy to work with…not sticky. If needed use remaining flour to roll the mixture into the size of a cookie sheet.
Spread softened butter over the sheet of dough, then add brown sugar to cover the butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon somewhat generously. Gently roll the covered dough to form a tube and then cut into pieces.
Bake at 350 for 12 to 14 minutes…until set…
Note: I wish I could give better directions, but all I have from my grandmother’s recipes are ingredients and as I cooked with her…and saw her cook, I just did what she did…never really measure some things exactly.
