I'm dusting flour off my apron and diving headlong into the world of home baked bread.
I thought I would start by making something sweet (as if I need that for my post winter waistline)
Rolled it out in a large rectangle. Ok, really, can you roll dough into a true rectangle?
It seems to always be an oval!
Sprinkle with butter, sugar and cinnamon mixture.
Roll up from the small end.
They are not going to last long around here.
Here's the recipe:
Ellen's Cinnamon Rolls
1 cup water
2 tablespoons margarine or butter, softened
3 1/3 cups flour
¼ cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons regular active dry yeast OR 3 teaspoons bread machine yeast or quick-acting active dry yeast
Place all ingredients in the bucket of your bread machine. Select dough cycle. Allow machine to complete cycle. Then dump dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into an 18x9 rectangle. Spread with 2 tablespoons softened butter or margarine mixed with ½ cup sugar and 3 teaspoons cinnamon. Sprinkle over entire surface of dough. Starting with short side, roll up like a jelly roll. Slice into 9 - 12 equal rolls. Place in a greased 13x9 inch pan cover and let rise 30 to 40 minutes til doubled. Bake in a 350º oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Drizzle with glaze while still warm.
Mix 1 cup powdered sugar, ½ teaspoon vanilla & 1 to 2 tablespoons milk until smooth & thin enough to drizzle.
