Simple Cinnamon Rolls



Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf frozen white bread dough, thawed in refrigerator
  • Flour, for dusting surface
  • 1/4 stick of butter, softened (butter the pans)

Filling:

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 stick butter, softened

Icing (optional):

  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup light cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to form a 16 by 7-inch rectangle.
  3. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
  4. Spread a stick of  softened butter over dough.
  5. Evenly sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Press mixture with palm.
  6. Roll up dough as for a jelly roll.
  7. Cut roll into 14 slices and then set aside in a warm place and allow dough to rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  8. Divide rolls among 2 buttered round baking pans.
  9. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden on top.
  10. This is where I usually stop, because we aren’t big frosting people. Continue on if you want to add the frosting.
  11. While the rolls are baking, combine the icing ingredients with an electric mixer until fluffy.
  12. Frost the warm rolls with the icing. Serve warm.
