Sorry for all the recipes in a row!! I promise that once my computer is up I will get more crafties stuff up too! Hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!!
Our Christmas breakfast tradition has always been these yummy cinnamon rolls!! I bake them the day before and re-heat them on Christmas morning. After, we see what Santa has brought we eat these puppies as we start to unwrap presents!! I seriously could eat a whole batch of these... I try resisting... but they just call my name and they are just sitting RIGHT there... you know how it goes :)
These are good all year round so give a shot :)
DE's-licious Cinnamon Rolls
WARNING: These are so easy to make they call your name whenever a cold snap rolls through or you see the first snowflake- author holds no responsiblity for any baking rushes that occur due to the deliciousness and addicitive nature of rolls.
2 pkgs. dry active yeast (about 6 teaspoons)
2 1/2 cups warm water
1 pkg. white cake mix (or be creative)
4 1/2 cups flour
Dissolve yeast in water and let stand for 10 minutes. Beat in cake mix and three cups flour. Add remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time until dough forms. Knead for 6-8 mins. Place in greased bowl, cover with damp towel and let rise until doubled (about 30 min.) Deflate dough, cut in half, roll into rectangle. Spread butter or margarine on dough. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon. Roll up jelly roll style. Using sharp knife cut in two inch circles. Place in a greased 9X13 pan (or greased cookie sheet in a pinch). Let rise until doubled (about 30 min.) Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Glaze as you wish and resite taking a bite of the hot yumminess. The place burned fingers under cold water becuase you couldn't :)
Now there are many differnent cinnamon roll glazes and I use whatever one I have on hand:)
Powdered Sugar Glaze
Milk or Orange Juice
Vanilla extract (opt)
Just mix together until you get the consitancy you like. A little liquid goes a long way with powdered sugar!
1 can frosting, Cream Cheese (yummy), vanilla, again get creative!
Again mix until you get the consistancy you like!
What is your favorite glaze??
