Quick And Easy Cinnamon Rolls

1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
4 tablespoons melted butter
2/3 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1 teaspoon Watkins ground cinnamon
1/3 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 teaspoon Watkins vanilla extract

Directions: Roll dough into a rectangle shape and brush with the melted butter. In a large bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon and chopped nuts then layer over dough. Then starting with the long end, roll the dough up into a log. Moisten edges with a little water to seal. Then cut roll into 1 inch slices. Place rolls into lightly buttered cake pans and set aside at room temperature. Allow to rise for approximately 1 1/2 hours or until dough has doubled in size. Finally pour the heavy cream over rolls and bake at 350F for approximately 25 to 30 minutes.

Place rolls on wire rack to cool. Combine sugar, milk and vanilla and drizzle over rolls.

Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

homemade cinnamon rolls These rolls are well worth the effort and nothing tastes better than homemade! This recipe has cinnamon in the dough as well as the filling.

4-1/4 to 4-3/4 cups/1 to 1.25 liters all-purpose flour
1 package quick-rising active dry yeast
1-1/4 cups/325 mL milk
1 tsp/5 mL Watkins Original Double Strength Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup/60 mL sugar
1/4 cup/60 mL butter
1 tsp/5 mL salt
1 tsp/5 mL Watkins Cinnamon
2 eggs
6 tbsp/90 mL butter, softened
1/2 cup/125 mL brown sugar
4 tsp/20 mL Watkins Cinnamon
1 cup/250 mL powdered sugar
1 tsp/5 mL Watkins Original Double Strength Vanilla Extract
4 to 5 tsp/20 to 25 mL milk

Directions: Combine 1-1/2 cups/375 mL of the flour and yeast in large mixing bowl. Heat the 1-1/4 cups/325 mL milk, vanilla, sugar, butter, salt, and cinnamon just until mixture is warm (120-130 deg.F/50-55 deg C), stirring constantly. Add to flour mixture along with eggs. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds; scraping sides of bowl constantly. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Using a spoon, stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can (dough will be soft). Knead in enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately soft dough (3 to 5 minutes total). Shape dough into a ball; place in a lightly greased bowl, turning once. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size (about 1 to 1-1/2 hours). (The dough is ready for shaping when you can lightly press two fingers 1/2-inch/1-cm into dough and an indentation remains.) Punch down dough and divide in half. Place each half on lightly floured surface and smooth into a ball. Cover and let rest 10 minutes.

On lightly floured surface, roll half the dough into a 12 x 8-inch/30 x 20-cm rectangle. Spread with 3 tbsp/45 mL of the butter. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle half over rectangle. Roll up from short side. Seal edges (brushing with water makes rolls easier to seal). Repeat with remaining dough. Slice one roll into 8 pieces and the other roll into 7 pieces. Arrange slices, evenly, cut-side up, in greased 13 x 9-inch/33 x 23-cm baking dish. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled (about 30 minutes). Bake at 350 deg F/180 deg C for 25 to 40 minutes or until light brown. Invert at once onto wire rack, invert again. Cool slightly. Drizzle rolls with a glaze made by combining the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk. Serve rolls warm or store in an air-tight container. Makes 15 rolls.
