Best Ever Cinnamon Rolls


2 1/2 teaspoons yeast (one package)
1/4 cup warm water
4 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup warm  milk (or water)
brown sugar and cinnamon for sprinkling
powdered sugar, butter, and milk for topping

Dissolve the yeast in the 1/4 cup water.
Mix flour, sugar, and salt.
Add soft butter and yeast mixture to the one cup of warm milk.
Mix the liquid mixture with the dry ingredients.
Mix well and knead until smooth.
Put in a greased bowl and let rise for about an hour (or more).
Punch down the dough and roll out into a rectangle.  Spread with softened butter
and then sprinkle generously with brown sugar and cinnamon.
Roll up and cut into 14 rolls. Place in two greased 9 inch pans and let rise again. 
Bake at 400 for 13-15 minutes.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter and add about a 1/2 cup powdered sugar to make a paste
Add a LITTLE bit of milk until the mixture is thin enough to spread easily. 
Put the topping on the rolls while they are still  hot.

Today we tried a new cinnamon rolls recipe, and let me tell you they turned out so good that I wanted to save this recipe in My Little Recipe Book.  I love making cinnamon rolls with my two years old daughter Anika, she is my true little helper.

Big Thanks goes to The Little Red Hen for this yummy recipe!
