Ellen's Story

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.

Ingredients

FOR THE DOUGH:
2 c
all purpose flour
2 Tbsp
sugar
4 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
salt
3 Tbsp
butter, softened
3/4 c
milk
FOR THE FILLING:
4 Tbsp
butter, softened
1 c
brown sugar
3 tsp
ground cinnamon
FOR THE GLAZE:
1/2 c
confectioners' sugar (powdered)
1/4 c
milk

Directions Step-By-Step

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 decided to give this recipe a try after having my heart set on making cinnamon rolls but discovering that i was low on yeast. the finished product was an ugly, disgusting, pathetic excuse of cinnamon rolls. any recipe from a reputable source would not turn out that way. nevertheless, here are the flaws. the lack of eggs resulted in the cinnamon rolls being dry and crumbly rather than being soft and flaky. and the over compensation of baking powder madethem too salty

Yeast doesn't intimidate me,as I've gotton the hang of it's temperature needs years,which is the real trick to yeast.... But these look quicker,easier and yum!!One question tho.... What size does one make the dough when it's rolled out? I'm presuming the typical rectangle shape,but how long and wide? Thanks!! I'll watch for your reply! Happy baking!!

Absolutely the worst thing I ever made. What a waste of ingredients and the mess in the pan with the sugar and stuff. Never again!
