Ingredients

Dough:

1/4 cup butter

1 cup milk

3 1/2 cups flour

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup sugar

3 Tbsp yeast

1 egg

Filling:

1/2 cup butter, softenend

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

4 Tbsp cinnamon

Directions

To make the dough:

Combine the milk and butter in a microwavable bowl. Heat until butter is melted and milk is warm (not hot) about 1 minute 30 seconds.

In a mixing bowl combine 3 Tbsp of yeast, 3 cups of flour, salt, and the sugar. Add the milk/butter mixture and the egg.

Mix well using a dough hook.

Add the rest of the flour a 1/4 cup at a time.

Scrape down the sides and mix for 5 minutes on medium.

Cover with a clean dish towel and let sit 10 minutes.

On a floured surface, roll out the dough to about 20"x13".

Spread the softened butter evenly on the rolled out dough.

 Mix the sugar and brown sugar together with the cinnamon.

Sprinkle evenly over the butter.

Starting with the edge farthest from you, roll the dough tightly toward you.

Cut into 1 1/2" sections with a sharp knife. Divide evenly between to greased round cake pans.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Let the rolls rise in a warm place,covered with a towel, for about 30 minutes.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.

While the rolls are baking, make the icing.

Icing:

2 cups powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup butter, melted

1-2 Tbsp milk

Mix together the melted butter, vanilla, and powdered sugar.

Add the milk to get it the consistency you like.

We like it not too thick and not too runny.

Just right and spreadable.

After you remove the rolls from the oven spread the icing evenly between the two pans.
