  4. Turn out dough on floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes)
  5. Put dough into a large buttered bowl and cover with a towel in a warm draft free area (I find my microwave is great for this) Let rise for 1 1/2 hour
  6. punch dough down and separate dough into 12 even pieces.
  7. roll and press dough out into about 6" X 2" rectangles
  8. Mix all cinnamon filling ingredients together well and spread out on each piece of dough
  9. Roll up each piece of dough, place in buttered baking pan and press down gently.
  10. Cover with towel and let rise 1 hour
  11. Bake @ 375 until nicely browned
  12. mix icing ingredients together and pour or spread (depending on desired consistency) on top of warm cinnamon rolls.... eat and ENJOY!!!
