Decedant Cinnamon Rolls

                                Right about now, my house smells divine.  I can hardly wait!
Really, is there anything better than a gooey cinnamon roll dripping with butter, cinnamon-sugar and frosting?  I don't think so.

Today I've got all four of my kiddos at home with me.  On these mornings I like to do something special.  We are in too big a hurry during the week to get a homemade breakfast on the table for the older two.  They go to school at 7:36, I am a work by 7:30.  Unless I want to get up at the crack of dawn to make something, and I don't, it's just a quick bowl of cereal and out the door.

As I said, Saturdays are made for a special breakfast and I am up making cinnamon rolls.  They take under an hour to make and bake and are so good.  Dripping with butter, extra cinnamon-ey(?) with the perfect amount of frosting oozing every where, these are definitely my kids' favorite breakfast of all times. 

You won't believe how simple and easy these are to make.  I use my Fluffy Roll recipe and add a few more things to them.  They rise and bake in the same time and only cost a few more pennies to make.

Ingredients for rolls

1 Fluffy Dinner Roll, rolled out into large thin rectangle
1tbs Vanilla 
10tbs Sugar
8tbs Cinnamon
1cube+4tbs butter, softened and divided

Make dinner roll recipe as called for but add an additional tablespoon of sugar and vanilla to the dough recipe.

Let rise in warm bowl with plastic wrap for 5 minutes.

Roll out on floured surface until very thin and in a rectangular form.

Let rest for a few minutes while you get the other ingredients and the pan ready.

Mix the remaining 9tbs of sugar with the cinnamon

Slather 1 cube (gasp!) of softened butter over the entire dough, leaving about a 1 inch border along the whole thing.

Sprinkle cinnamong-sugar where butter is and press down firmly so the sugar sticks to the butter.

Small cube the remaining butter and dot all the dough and cinnamon.

Starting at the long end, start rolling the dough tightly.  Keeping it tightly rolled will help after you cut them to keep the sugar inside.

Cut into 18, 1"  rolls and place on a greased cookie sheet side by side.  These are going to expand so they will be pretty big when they finish rising.

Let rise in a preheated 170 degree oven for 20 minutes or until double.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes until they are no longer doughy inside.

Frosting Ingredients

1 1/2c Powdered Sugar
2 1/2 tsp Milk(+/_)
1/8 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Vanilla
4tbs Butter, room temp

In a mixing bowl combine sugar and butter.  Whip until nice pale yellow color and completely smooth.

Add in salt, vanilla and milk a tsp at a time.  If you need more milk add it in a tsp at a time.  If  it is too runny, add more powdered sugar.

Frost rolls after they have had time to cool, about 10 minutes.

Enjoy!  These rolls are so easy to make and only cost an additional $1.55 in extra ingredients.  That means these rolls only cost $2.55 for 18 servings or .14ea!

Pull these out of your recipe arsenal the next time you want to make something special.  You won't be disappointed and your family will love them!
