Ellen's StoryWorking with yeast has always intimidated me, I'll admit it. Don't know why, it just does. That's why I don't bake much bread other than the quick breads or muffins. This recipe seemed right up my alley.

FOR THE DOUGH:
all purpose flour
FOR THE FILLING:
FOR THE GLAZE:
confectioners' sugar (powdered)
1Filling: In a small bowl, combine the softened butter, brown sugar and cinnamon to form a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle half of the mixture over the bottom of a 9x9" pan.
2Dough: In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in softened butter. Stir in milk to form a soft dough.
3Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle about 1/4" thick.
4Spread the remaining filling on the rolled-out dough. Roll up the rectangle, and with a sharp knife slice into 18 small rolls (or 12 if you want them bigger).
5Place the rolls in the 9x9" pan and bake in a pre-heated 400-degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
6Glaze: combine powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl and stir until smooth.
7When the rolls are done, drizzle on the glaze and serve warm with hot coffee or a cold glass of milk.
