Homemade Cinnamon Rolls
In a large mixing bowl, combine the 2 1/4 cups of milk, 2 tablespoons of yeast, 2 tablespoons of oil, 2 tablespoons white sugar, and 2 teaspoons of salt. Whisk gently until the ingredients are combined and allow to sit for 5 minutes.
Slowly add in the 5 cups of flour while stirring with a wooden spoon or stand mixer. Continue stirring until the flour is homogenous with the rest of the ingredients.
Turn your mixture out onto a lightly floured surface and knead by hand for 5-10 minutes, or until the dough is elastic.
Place the dough back in the mixing bowl and cover with saran wrap. Allow the dough to rise for 30 minutes.
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a long rectangular sheet about ¼ inch thick.
Before you begin preparing your filling, preheat the air fryer to 375 F for 5 minutes.
Prepare the filling by melting the 6 tablespoons of butter and combining it with the 1 1/2 cups brown sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Spread the filling over the sheet of dough and use a spoon to make sure it is spread evenly.
Roll the dough into a long tube and cut into even pieces.
Place as many rolls as will fit in your air fryer basket and cook for 8 minutes at 350 F.
Top the cinnamon rolls with your favorite cream cheese frosting (recipe below if needed) right after they come out of the air fryer, allow to cool for 3-5 minutes, serve, and enjoy!
Cream Cheese Frosting
Combine 8 oz. cream cheese, 2 cups powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla in a bowl and mix together until evenly mixed.
