- 2 Packages of Yeast dissolved in 1 cup lukewarm water
- 6 TBSP of Vegetable Shortening
- 1 Cup of Granulated Sugar
- 8 Cups of Flour
- 2 Cups of Hot Water
- 2 Eggs Beaten
- 1 TBSP of Salt
- 1/2 Cup of Softened Butter
- 1.5 Cups of Brown Sugar
- 1 Cup of Raisins
- 2 TBSP of Cinnamon
- 1 Cup of Finely Ground Thrasher Liberty Blend Coffee (almost powder)
- 4 TBSP of Softened Butter
- 2 Cups of Powdered Sugar
- 4 TBSP of Milk
- 1 TSP of Vanilla Extract
- Add yeast to a bowl of lukewarm water and let sit for about 5 minutes.
- In a bowl or a stand mixer, add your shortening, sugar, and salt to hot water and beat for about 30 seconds.
- Let mixture cool to lukewarm temperature and then stir in 2 cups of flour and mix until completely smooth. Next, add your yeast mixture and beaten eggs and continue to mix until well combined.
- Gradually continue to stir in the remaining 6 cups of flour and thoroughly mix either with a dough hook or your hands for about 2 minutes.
- Remove the dough from the bowl and place on a lightly floured counter. Continue to knead by hand and add a bit of flour if the dough is still sticky. Knead until dough feels smooth.
- Cover the dough and let it rise for 30 minutes. Once the dough has doubled in size, remove it from the bowl and divide it in half. Use a rolling pin to roll one half of the dough into a rectangular shape, about 23 x 14 inches.
- Spread the dough evenly with half of the softened butter and sprinkle dough with half of the brown sugar, raisins, coffee and cinnamon.
- Roll dough into one long roll and begin cutting slices using dental floss or thread. A good rule of thumb is to have them about 1.5- 2 inches long.
- Place rolls in greased baking pans.
- Do the same process with additional dough
- Let the rolls rise for about 10 minutes to double in size.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and bake for 20-30 minutes or until cinnamon rolls are golden brown on top and cooked in the middle. Be sure to check the middle to be sure they are not doughy.
- Remove from the oven and let the rolls cool to room temperature.
- While the rolls are cooling, make the frosting in a medium bowl and frost rolls generously.
