alfway through my pregnancy when I was carrying my little princess there was brief period of about a week when cinnamon roll was the only thing I would eat. We bought a whole big pack from our local Sam's club. The craving was gone in a few days but cinnamon rolls were stuck in my mind.
1. In a large mixing bowl add milk, sugar and yeast. Let stand for 2-3 minutes andd in the melted butter and salt.
2. Mix in the flour slowly. Stir everything together.
3. Knead for about 3-4 minutes until the dough becomes smooth. While kneading apply some oil on your palm, it helps in kneading and the dough doesn't stick to your hand.
4. Apply oil on top of the dough and cover with a wet kitchen towel and place it in a warm place. Let the dough rise to double its size, about 30 to 45 minutes.
5. Gently deflate the dough and knead for a minute.
6. Roll out the dough to a 10-12" rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Brush with 2 tbsp melted butter. Spread the cinnamon-sugar mixture all over the rectangle. Roll into a log. Once rolled log, cut at about 1" intervals Place the slices flat on a greased baking tray. Cover and let it rise until doubled about 45 minutes to an hour.
7. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Bake the rolls for 22-25 minutes until golden brown. While the rolls are baking, make the glaze.
8. Whisk together the sugar, butter, vanilla and milk till it reaches a thick, but slightly pouring consistency.
9. Take the rolls out of the oven. Let it cool for 10-15 minutes and pour the sugar glaze in any pattern you like.Serve while still a little warm or allow to cool to room temperature and store in air-tight containers. When ready to serve, microwave on high for 10 seconds and serve. ENJOY!
