Cinnamon Rolls

Today 3 of my friends and I got together and made some delicious cinnamon rolls.
Here is the recipe that we used for them.

Cinnamon Rolls

Makes 8 to 12 large buns  
6 1/2 T. granulated sugar 
1 t. salt 
5 1/2 T. unsalted butter, softened 
1 egg, slightly beaten 
1 t. vanilla extract 
3 1/2 c. unbleached bread or all-purpose flour 
2 t. instant yeast 1 1/8 c. milk  

Filling:  6 1/2 T. granulated sugar 
1 1/2 t. cinnamon 

1 c. powdered sugar, sifted 
1/4 t. vanilla extract 

Cream together the sugar, salt, and butter.  Beat in the egg and vanilla; add the flour, yeast, and milk.  Mix until dough forms a ball, then knead for about 10 minutes, adding flour and milk as necessary. Let rise in a covered, oiled bowl until doubled, about 2 hours.  Transfer dough to lightly oiled counter. Roll into a 12”x14” rectangle. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over top. Roll up from the longways and cut into 8 to 12 rolls.  Place cut-side down on parchment-lined baking sheets, or in a 9/13 baking pan.  Let rise until doubled, 75 to 90 minutes.  Bake at 350 for 20 to 30 minutes.  Let cool on wire racks.  Combine ingredients for glaze, drizzling the milk in slowly while stirring.  Use enough milk for the glaze to have a liquid, but still slightly thick texture. Drizzle the glaze over the buns with a small spoon.

Here are some pictures of our rolls before we put the glaze on :)

And last but not least....*drum roll please*...Arianne's.

Hope you all enjoy it if you try it!
