Cinnamon Rolls

This is simply plain yummy and a weakness of mine actually. So when Paula sent this in with some great pictures as well - I had to post immediately. She wrote:

Bread Machines are one of the better inventions I ever invested in. It saves time and a lot of hand work. My father loves his sweets and this is one of his favorite desserts. It appears as a lot of work, but the machine does all of the work.
Cinnamon Rolls (Using bread machine)



(Final Stage - Baked & Glazed)


Ingredients:
  1. 1 Cup of Warm Water
  2. 1 Egg
  3. 3 Cups Bread Flour
  4. 1/4 Cup Sugar
  5. 1 1/2 Teaspoons Salt
  6. 5 Tablespoons Butter (Softened)
  7. 1 Teaspoon Instant Yeast
Ingredients For Filling:
  1. 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  2. 3 Tablespoons Cinnamon
  3. 1/2 Cup Raisins (optional)
  4. 4 Tablespoons Butter (softened)

Ingredients For Glaze:
  1. 1 Cup Confectioners Sugar
  2. 4 oz Cream Cheese Softened
  3. 3 Tablespoons Butter (softened)
  4. 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
You will need :
  1. Bread Machine
  2. Rolling Pin
  3. Baking Sheet
  4. 2 Bowls
*Keep in mind, all bread machines will have their own instructions as to the order you place the ingredients in. I listed them in the order mine calls for.

Directions:
  1. Place all ingredients in bread machine pan and set for dough.
  2. When it is done with the cycle ( approx 1.5 hours)
  3. Place in a bowl and cover until dough doubles in size (about an hour)
  4. Place dough on floured surface and roll out (Roll this out very thin because you are going to roll it and slice it - about 1/4 inch)
  5. Spread softened butter over rolled out dough
  6. In small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon
  7. Spread brown sugar and cinnamon over rolled out dough
  8. Add Raisins
  9. Start at one of the outsides and roll dough towards center and complete rolling until it is all rolled tight
  10. Slice 1” slices
  11. Place slices on baking sheet, close together and bake for 35 – 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
  12. In a separate bowl mix confectioners sugar, cream cheese and vanilla and butter.
  13. Drizzle over rolls while they are warm.

Love this one. Completely. Bread machines though, are not for everyone. However, this really makes it easy to make these delicious Cinnamon Rolls. These will be scarfed, stolen by the kids and eaten before you can blink! (If you use margarine instead of butter and leave out the cream cheese and you can keep them Parve as well!).

oooo! looks yummy yummy delicious, and i happen to have a bread machine. just a couple of questions, paula...

roll out dough - how big and how thick?

is there butter in the glaze? (listed in ingredients but not directions, and i've never made a cream cheese glaze.)

oops..
Yes, the ingredients list includes butter. I neglected to list it in the instructions.

I roll this out very thin because you are going to roll it and slice it. I estimate it about 1/4 inch
