I have been at it again – finding more ways to use the base of the best dinner roll dough. It was requested that I try cinnamon rolls and the results of the trial were fabulous. I made the basic dough in my bread machine. Then I rolled it out, added magic dust – err, I mean cinnamon sugar, rolled it into a log, cut into slices, and then baked. Then a luscious cream cheese icing was drizzled on top after the rolls had cooled. Yum!
Roll out the dough into a large rectangle. Spread melted butter on top and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.
Roll up the dough and cut in half. Cut each half into two pieces. (I find that this is the easiest way to have somewhat equal-sized rolls.
Allow to cool and then drizzle icing on top.
I am not a big fan of eating cereal, so these really hit the spot for me. They also make a great dessert. I find that if I don’t eat them right away, they are best reheated in the microwave for about 20 seconds. Since the recipe makes two pans, it is easy to have one now and freeze one for later.
