Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

I had this recipe sitting in my computer for so long, just never got around to posting it. One day after school my kids were asking for cinnamon rolls, and well they would have never been done in time if I had made them the traditional way. So another quick search on All recipes resulted in this recipe.

They were easy to make and really didn't take long at all. I did let them rise a little longer than the recipe stated, I had the time and thought why not. These were really good and the kids loved them!

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup margarine, softened
3 1/4 cups flour
1 tbsp instant yeast
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup water
1 egg
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup margarine,softened

Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, remove from heat. Stir in the margarine until melted. Let this cool until lukewarm.

In a large mixing bowl combine 2 1/4 cups flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Add water, egg, and milk mixture, beat well. Add remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well. When the dough has just pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes.

Cover the dough and let it rest for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile mix together the cinnamon and brown sugar.

Roll dough into an approximate 12x9 rectangle. Spread the 1/2 cup margarine onto dough and sprinkle the sugar mixture on top. Roll up dough dough and press seams to seal. Cut into 12 equal portions and place cut side up into 12 lightly greased muffin cups. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.

Bake at 375F for about 20 minutes or until light golden. Drizzle with icing to serve.

1 cup icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2-3 tbsp vanilla

Note: I use traditional yeast so I first mixed the warm water and yeast to let that rise and than add the milk mixture, and egg. Than I stirred in the flour.
