Cinnamon Rolls


non-stick cooking spray

1 recipe sweet yeast dough

1/4 cup butter, melted, divided

1 cup sugar

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


Easy Powdered Sugar Icing:

1/4 cup milk

3 cups powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Coat 8-inch cake pans or 48 muffin cups with no-stick cooking spray. Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces. Roll out one piece on a lightly floured surface into a 12 x 6-inch rectangle. Brush with 1 tablespoon melted butter, leaving a 1-inch border.

Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle 1/4 of the mixture over the dough. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting at a long side. Press to seal the seam. Cut into 1-inch slices. Place, cut side down, in the prepared pans or muffin cups. Repeat with the remaining dough to make the remaining rolls. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 45 to 60 minutes.

Heat the oven to 350°F. Uncover the loaves and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

To Make Icing: Microwave milk in a medium microwave-safe bowl on HIGH for 1 minute or until hot. Whisk in powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth. Drizzle over rolls while still slightly warm.
