For the dough:
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 egg
For the filling:
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
For the glaze:
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk


Step 1: Make the Dough

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. In a small saucepan, heat the milk and butter until the butter is melted. Add the milk mixture and egg to the flour mixture and stir until a dough forms. Knead the dough for 5 minutes until it is smooth and elastic. Cover the dough with a clean cloth and let it rise for 30 minutes.

Step 2: Make the Filling

In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.

Step 3: Roll out the Dough

Preheat your oven to 375°F. On a floured surface, roll out the dough into a rectangle. Spread the softened butter evenly over the dough. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the butter, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges.

Step 4: Roll the Dough

Starting at the long end closest to you, tightly roll the dough into a log. Pinch the edges together to seal the seam. Cut the log into 1-inch slices.

Step 5: Bake

Place the cinnamon swirls on a greased baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Step 6: Make the Glaze

In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the warm cinnamon swirls.
