CINNAMON ROLLS

These are absolutely the best cinnamon rolls you can make. Give them a try. You and your family and guests will be so impressed.

STEP 1:

4 tablespoons melted butter
4 tablespoons water
1 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon sugar

Place these ingredients into the bread machine.

STEP 2:

1/2 small box instant pudding
1/2 teaspoons salt
4 cups bread flour
2.2 teaspoons yeast

Mix pudding, salt, and flour and place in machine in the listed order, making sure to place wet ingredients in the bottom, then dry ingredients on top. Create well, add yeast. Mix on dough setting. Using a rolling pin, roll out on flat surface using flour on the surface and on the rolling pin to about 16″ x 20″.

STEP 3:

3/4 cups brown sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup butter
Sprinkle chopped nuts and raisins to taste–or none–this is totally optional

Mix these ingredients together, making a paste.Place this mixture on the dough.

Roll into a long log, cut into 1/2″ slices. Place into well greased 9 x 12 pan (preferably glass). Let rise for about 45 minutes. Bake at 350° for 12 minutes, or until golden brown.

Save yourself lots of cleanup time by greasing the bottom of the pan, then laying parchment paper, then greasing the paper again.

After you take the rolls out of the oven, wait 2 minutes, then turn over on a tray to cool.  This will allow the cinnamon mixture to disperse throughout the rolls, and not just stay on the bottom of the pan.

STEP 4:

Frost with:
1 cup powdered sugar
4 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cups butter
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 tablespoon milk

Mix together and wait for a few minutes  for the rolls to cool before frosting.

Enjoy!
