Cinnamon Rolls

Christmas morning isn't Christmas morning without the smell of baking Cinnamon Rolls coming from the oven while opening presents. It's easy to make and is a major crowd pleaser.

Start with your favorite dough recipe. I use this family gem here.

Using half the dough, roll out dough into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. Spread with softened butter about 1/2 cup. Hey I never said this was a low fat treat! Then spread with cinnamon sugar to your liking. Using the long end, roll the dough into itself making a long tube. Then cute into 1" thick wheels and place face down into a greased 9x13 glass dish. Allow to rise 30 minutes and bake or cover tightly and place in fridge over night. In the morning take out the dish and allow to warm to room temperature about 2 hours. I'm usually lazy and only wait about an hour. Bake 25-30 minutes at 400 degrees.

Once rolls are out of the oven top with your favorite frosting.

Basic Frosting:
1 cube soften butter
1 tsp Vanilla
1 lb Powdered Sugar

Mix butter on high until light, add vanilla, mix again then add sugar, while mixing on low add 1 tablespoon of Milk at a time then quickly back to high until it's at a thickness you like.
