Cinnamon Rolls

As I am sitting here writing this, it is snowing outside. Its not just a little, its coming down hard. On a day like this a nice warm, gooey, delicious cinnamon roll is just what I need. Preferably a Cinnabon cinnamon roll. There isnt one by where I live anymore. It left the mall. Oh, I loved Cinnabon. These taste almost exactly the same. You should definitely make these, they are so good!

Cinnamon Rolls
Recipe Source:

1 cup Warm Milk (110°F)
2 Eggs, Room Temp
4 ¾ cups Bread Flour
1/3 cup Margarine, Melted
½ cup White Sugar
2 ½ teaspoons Yeast
1 teaspoon Salt

1. Dissolve yeast in warm milk in a large bowl. Mix in the sugar, margarine, salt , and eggs. Add flour and mix well.

2. Heat oven to 200° and turn off. Put dough in a greased bowl, cover and put in oven for about an hour or until doubled. After the dough has doubled its size, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest 10 minutes.

3. In a small bowl combine brown sugar and cinnamon.

Cinnamon Mixture
2 ½ Tablespoons Ground Cinnamon
1 cup Brown Sugar, Packed
1/3 cup Butter, softened enough to spread easily

1. Roll dough into a 16x21 inch rectangle. Spread dough with 1/3 cup butter and sprinkle evenly with cinnamon/sugar mixture.

2. Roll up dough, rolling from the 16 inch end, and cut into 12 rolls. Place rolls in a lightly greased 9x13 baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes.

3. Pre-heat oven to 400°F. Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden brown, about 17 minutes. While rolls are baking beat together all ingredients for the icing.

¼ cup Butter, Softened
1 - 3oz pkg. Cream Cheese, Softened
1 ½ cups Powdered Sugar
½ teaspoon Vanilla
1/8 teaspoon Salt

Spread icing on rolls while still warm.
