Carol's Cinnamon Rolls

My husband loves cinnamon rolls. I wanted something that tastes like cinnamon rolls that can be purchased at the malls so I began playing around and came up with these. We love them. I use my bread machine just because it takes the work out of kneading them, but they can be made without a bread machine. I use only the dough cycle

1 Tbsp

FROST WITH: 4 OUNCES CREAM CHEESE, 1/4 CUP SOFT BUTTER, 1 1/2 CUPS POWERED SUGAR, 1/2 TSP VANILLA, 1 1/2 TSP MILK

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Rolls: place ingredients in machine following following the order of your machine. Set on dough cycle. After dough cycle remove from machine and roll out to about a 17 x 10 rectangle.
2
Filling: Mix brown sugar and cinnamon. Spread softened butter over dough. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon mixture. I add nuts and raisins. Roll tightly from the long end, pinching edges closed when completely rolled. Slice the dough into about 1/2 inch slices or350 larger depending on how big you want to make them. Place into cake pans (I use a greased 9x13 pan.. Sometimes I can get as many as 20 rolls to a batch. You may need two pans. Let rise until doubled. Bake 350 for 15-20 minutes. Do not overbake.
3
Mix up frosting ingredients and spread on warm rolls. They are best if eaten fresh, but 10 -15 seconds in the microwave will soften them up.
