Ellen's notes for this recipe:
Working 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.

Directions

1
Filling: 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.
2
Dough: 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.
3
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle about 1/4" thick.
4
Spread 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).
5
Place the rolls in the 9x9" pan and bake in a pre-heated 400-degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
6
Glaze: combine powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl and stir until smooth.
7
When the rolls are done, drizzle on the glaze and serve warm with hot coffee or a cold glass of milk.

I have never made cinnamon rolls from scratch, these were so easy. They were nice and flaky but not crumbly and rose nicely without using yeast. However, I only got 8 yummy rolls. I would have liked them to be a little more sticky and gooey, the sugar didn't quiet melt, it stayed crystallized. Still delicious!
