Yield: one dozen


2 envelopes active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
1 tablespoon salt
4 cups all-purpose flour
4 egg yolk
1 1/2 cups butter, softened and divided
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Optional: 3/4 cup raisins, 3/4 cup golden raisins
Vanilla Glaze:
1 vanilla bean
2 3/4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon vanilla extract


Tina's Ooey-Gooey Cinnamon Rolls:
Dissolve yeast in very warm water, between 110 and 115 degrees. Add buttermilk, 3 tablespoons sugar, salt, flour, egg yolks and one cup butter; beat with an electric mixer on high speed for 8 minutes, until smooth. Turn out onto a baking sheet; cover and refrigerate for 6 hours. Roll out dough on a floured surface 1/2 to 3/4-inch thick; melt remaining butter and brush over dough. Mix remaining sugar and cinnamon together; sprinkle over dough. Spread raisins over top, if using; roll up dough jelly-roll style, starting on long edge. Place seam-side down; cut into 2-inch slices. Place on a greased 11"x9" baking sheet; cover. Let rise until double in bulk; bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Spread Vanilla Glaze over warm rolls.

Vanilla Glaze:
Slice vanilla bean in half lengthwise; scrape out seeds from both halves. Whisk together with remaining ingredients until smooth.

Tip: A pinch of ground cloves brings out the flavor in cinnamon-sugar.
