I do know how to make bread by hand, but I usually let my bread machine do the mixing and kneading for me. These cinnamon rolls are absolutely delicious!
Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls
1 cup warm milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup warm water
1/2 small pkg. instant vanilla pudding
4 cups bread flour (I used all-purpose)
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsps yeast (or 1 .25 oz package)
3 Tbsp butter, softened
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup sugar
4 tsp cinnamon
2 ozs light cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1.5 tsps milk, approx.
1 tsp vanilla
In a bread machine pan, place the milk, egg, melted butter, water, pudding, bread flour, sugar, salt, and yeast. Select the dough cycle.
When cycle is finished, knead enough to punch down. Roll or pat out into a large rectangle approximately 10x17 inches.
Brush dough with softened butter. Mix the cinnamon and sugars. Sprinkle mixture over the dough. Spread evenly close to edges.
Starting with the longer side, roll the dough into a log. Pinch along the long seam to seal.
Cut into 12 one-inch slices and arrange the pieces close together in a greased 13x9 pan.
Cover with towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about one hour.
Preheat oven to 350. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until puffed and light golden brown.
While buns are baking, prepare frosting. In a small bowl, beat powdered sugar, cream cheese, vanilla and milk until smooth. Remove buns from oven and spread with frosting. Serve warm.
NOTE: I didn't have any cream cheese, but the frosting was still good without it.
