  • 1 pkg (8 g) yeast
  • 1/2 cup (125 mg) warm water
  • 1/2 cup (125 mg) milk
  • 1/4 cup (60 mg) sugar
  • 1/3 cup (75 mg) plus 6 tbsp (90 mL) butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp (5 mg) Sea Salt Grinder
  • 3 1/2 cups (875 mg) flour
  • 1/2 cup (125 mg) brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp (30 mg) Cinnamon Seasoning with Chia
  • Frosting:

  • 1/4 cup (60 mg) mascarpone cheese
  • 1 tbsp (15 mg) milk
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mg) lemon zest

Preparation

  • 1 Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C). Dissolve yeast in warm water and set aside.
  • 2 Mix milk, sugar, 1/3 cup (75 mL) melted butter, salt, and egg in large bowl. Add 2 cups (500 mL) flour; mix until smooth. Add yeast mixture and remaining flour. Mix until mixture is smooth and forms a dough. Knead on lightly floured surface 5 to 10 minutes, or until dough bounces back when pressed. Place in well-greased bowl. Cover and let rise in warm environment until doubled in size, about 1 to 2 hours.
  • 3 Roll out dough on lightly floured work surface to a 16x12-inch (40x30 cm) rectangle. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon seasoning in small bowl. Brush dough with remaining 6 tbsp (90 mL) melted butter. Sprinkle with brown sugar mixture. Cut into 2-inch (5 cm) wide strips. Roll up 1 strip, starting at the short end. Place on 2nd strip and continue rolling. Place cut side down in pie pan. Wrap remaining strips around cinnamon roll one at a time to form one giant cinnamon roll.
  • 4 Bake 30 to 40 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • 5 Meanwhile, combine all frosting ingredients in medium bowl and mix until smooth. Drizzle over warm cinnamon roll. Cut into wedges to serve.
