I made these yummy rolls to keep us warm on this cold weekend. It was so easy because I used my bread machine to make the dough. But you don’t need a bread machine; they can be made with a regular mixer with a paddle attachment and a dough hook. You can also knead the dough by hand.
1 Cup water
2 Tbsp. butter, softened
3 1/3 Cups flour
¼ Cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
3 tsp. active dry yeast
1/3 Cup sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp. butter softened
Step 1: If using bread machine place all dough ingredients in bread pan in the order listed. Place on “dough only” setting and press start. When done proceed to step 2.
For electric mixer place all dough ingredients in bowl and mix with paddle attachment until small ball of dough forms. Switch to the dough hook and continue to knead for 5 minutes or you can knead by hand on a floured surface. Place dough in a bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour. Punch down & proceed with recipe.
Step 2: Grease 9x9x2 inch square pan. Mix 1/3 Cup sugar and the cinnamon.
Step 3: Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface and using your hands or a rolling pin form it into an 18 X 9 inch rectangle. Spread with 2 tablespoons of butter; sprinkle with sugar-cinnamon mixture. Roll up tightly, beginning at 9 inch side. Pinch edge of dough into a roll to seal. Cut roll into 1 inch slices. Place in pan. Cover; let rise in a warm place 1 to 1 1/4 hours or until double.
Heat oven to 375 F. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown . Remove from pan; drizzle glaze over warm rolls.
Mix 1 Cup powdered sugar with ½ tsp. vanilla and 1 – 2 Tbsp. milk until smooth and thin enough to drizzle.
