Cinnamon Rolls

For many years, the Cottonwood Civic Club had an Annual BBQ.  They would sell BBQ plates to raise money to help with the sports programs at the school.  As much as I loved the BBQ and Brunswick Stew, I especially looked forward to the wonderful homemade Cinnamon Rolls that came on the plate.  The lunchroom ladies at the school would prepare the Cinnamon Rolls and they would melt in your mouth.  I was so fortunate to be given the recipe for the Cinnamon Rolls from one of the ladies in our community.  I made the Cinnamon Rolls and the aroma and taste were certainly delightful.  It is always so satisfying to be able to create a sweet memory like this.

                                                          Cinnamon Rolls

2 cups milk, lukewarm
3 cups plain flour
1 1/2 tsp. yeast
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cooking oil

Mix by hand in a large bowl.  Set aside and let stand until double in bulk.

1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 level tsp. soda
1 heaping Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

Sift together and add this to the risen dough.  Mix well with floured hands.  Use enough plain flour to make a stiff dough.  Roll dough 1/4 in. thick.  Melt or allow butter to soften at room temperature.  Spread butter over entire surface.  Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over entire surface. 

Roll up and cut 1/2 in. thick.  Place on greased pan and let rise for one hour.  Bake in 335 degree oven for 25 min. 

Frosting:

1/2 cup confectionate sugar
milk

Add milk in small quantities until the icing is spreadable.
