Use Bonnie's Basic Bread recipe for the dough. After the dough has completed the first rise, punch the dough down and roll it out on a lightly floured surface. Roll into a rectangle 15 X 9. Brush the dough with the melted butter. Mix sugar and cinnamon in a shaker and sprinkle evenly over the dough. Use as much or as little as you like. I use about half the mixture. Add raisins or pecans if desired.
Now roll it starting on the long side and roll tightly and pinch the seam together to seal. Cut into 14 to 16 rolls.
Place in a butter greased glass Pyrex oblong dish, sprinkle it with sugar.
Place the cinnamon roll slices in the pan almost touching. Let rise about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Bake for 30 minutes in a 375 degree oven until golden brown. Let cool five minutes and then mix the glaze and pour over rolls.
To make the glaze combine the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla in a small mixing bowl. Add the hot water, one tablespoon at a time until smooth and can be drizzled. Spread over rolls, wait 5 minutes and pour a little melted butter on top of the rolls. Simply decadent! Enjoy!
