Ooey gooey Caramel Rolls

I will admit (for my mom) that I didn't get a lot of home cooked meals growing up. My mom wasn't really a fan of the kitchen (I think she got one cause it came with the house.) One thing I do remember were her AWESOME caramel rolls. One of the companies no longer makes one of the ingredients so I searched the web for a suitable replacement and tweaked it to make it even better!

Here is what you will need to make Ooey Gooey Caramel Rolls
2C warm water (do not use HOT)
2T yeast
1/2C sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 stick of butter (softened at room temperature)
1 large egg
6 1/2C flour (divided)
1C sugar and 1/4C cinnamon mixed together

1 1/2C packed brown sugar
3T water
1 1/2 sticks of butter

2- pans for baking

Mix warm water and yeast into a bowl and let ferment for 5 minutes. Then add sugar, salt, butter, egg, and 2 cups flour to yeast and water. Mix well. Add remaining flour (4 1/2 cups) to mixture and mix until well incorporated. If the dough is still sticky then you can add a few tablespoons of additional flour. The dough should be able to be handled without sticking to your hands.

Set dough aside for 45 minutes and cover with a light towel (this will allow the dough to rise). After dough has doubled in size. Sprinkle flour out on your counter and roll dough into a long rectangle. Spread a light layer of butter on the dough and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar mixture on top. Roll the dough into one long log shape. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough in half. Cut each half into 6 equal parts. Melt caramel ingredients in microwave and our half into one pan and half into another. Place 6 rolls on top of the caramel mixture and let sit for an additional 45 minutes.

Bake at 325 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and turn pan upside down onto a plate (do this while it is hot or your caramel will harden and stick to the pan.

Here is how your plate will look when you are all done!
