cinnamon rolls

I got pretty lucky in the mother-in-law department. Not only did I get a great mother-in-law, but she also makes the yummiest cinnamon rolls. Here's the recipe she's been making her family for years.

1 package dry yeast (2 1/4teaspoon)
1/4 c water
1 c milk
1/4 c sugar
1/4 c butter
1 t salt
3 1/2 c flour
1 egg
1/2 c butter, soften for spreading after dough is made

Cinnamon Sugar Mixture
1/4 c ground cinnamon
1/2 c white sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1/8 t salt

1 cup powered sugar
3 T milk
8 oz softened cream cheese  (optional)

  1.  Combine all the ingredients  in a bread machine and process to dough, using the dough setting.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Divide dough in half. Roll each piece to a large rectangle. Spread soften butter over each rectangle. Sprinkle with half of the cinnamon and sugar mixture.
  3. Roll dough up lengthwise. Cut rolled dough about every 1-2 inches, depending on how tall you want your cinnamon rolls to be.
  4. Place rolls cut side down on the baking sheet, about 1-2 inches apart.
  5. Cover and let rise for 45 minutes, or about doubled in size.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.
  7. Prepare your icing by combining sugar, cream cheese, and milk and mixing until smooth.
  8. Spread icing on hot rolls and enjoy!
