Shirley J Cinnamon Rolls

A while ago, we were given a product from our friends to try and I am finally getting around to sharing it with you here on the blog.  (Things have been crazy busy here in my world.)  Anyway, let me tell you about this product....

These cinnamon rolls were made using Shirley J Universal Sweet Roll Mix.  They were easy to make and turned out really yummy.  I do have a confession though, my cinnamon rolls never actually  got any glaze on them...we ate them too fast!  They were still good without the glaze and I can only assume that the glaze would make them even better.

  • 1 box (16 oz) Shirley J Universal Sweet Roll Mix
  • 3/4 c. Warm Water
  • 1 Tbs Instant Yeast
  •  Cinnamon (I used cinnamon and sugar.)
  •  Butter
  •  Brown sugar
  •  Raisins And Nuts- I did not add these.


Combine package contents and yeast, and mix for 20 seconds on low speed. Add water, and mix on low speed for 30 seconds, scrape bowl, and mix on medium speed for 10 minutes, or until dough is smooth, dry and elastic. Place dough into oiled bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place for 15 minutes.
Roll dough into 9”x18” rectangle. Coat with softened butter, and sprinkle generously with cinnamon and brown sugar. Roll dough tightly along the 9” edge, finishing with an 18” log.
Cut log into 12-1 ½” rolls and space evenly into a greased 9”x13” baking dish. Cover with towel and let rise for 45 minutes, or until rolls have doubled in size.

Preheat oven to 370 degrees. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Top while warm with any pastry glaze, or smear with cream cheese icing.
