Buns

  • 4 Tbs butter, melted
  • 4 Tbs. Water
  • ½ of 102 g. box of instant vanilla
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 Tbs sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 2 ¼ tsp active dry yeast

Filling

  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Frosting

  • ½ 250 g package of cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cup icing sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 ½ tsp milk

Directions

Buns

  1. Place ingredients in Bread Machine in order listed above.
  2. Set for dough cycle.
  3. After the dough cycle is complete, remove dough from the machine and roll out to approximately a 10 X 17 inch (25 X 43 cm) rectangle. The dough is very sticky so I recommend a light dusting of flour on your rolling surface and your rolling pin.

Filling

  1. Spread the softened butter over the dough with a smooth edged knife. Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.
  2. Sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture over the buttered dough.
  3. Roll tightly from the long end, inching edges closed when completely rolled.
  4. Slice rolled dough into 1 inch (2.5 cm) slices.
  5. Place into a greased 9 X 13 inch baking pan.
  6. Makes about 10 large rolls. Let rise until doubled. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden. Do not over bake.

Frosting

  1. Mix all ingredients together while the cinnamon buns are baking.
  2. Spread the frosting on the very warm rolls.
  3. Eat while they are still warm or heat them in the microwave oven for about 10 to 15 seconds.
  4. Enjoy! I know my family did!
