Cinnamon Rolls

Yet again, blogless-Laura has shared another great recipe with me. Laura Emailed me the link to this cinnamon roll recipe a few months ago, but I was slack to try it. What was I waiting for? They were delish! And I have long wanted to try The Pioneer Woman's cinnamon rolls, but her recipe makes a huge amount and the time commitment seemed a little daunting. My solution? Laura's rolls with PW's icing. The combination was fantastic!

1 1/4 C warm water
1/3 c oil
1/4 C sugar
2 1/4 tsp rapid rise yeast
1 tsp sat
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 egg
3 1/4 C flour
1/4 C melted butter
1 Tblsp cinnamon
1/2 sugar

Combine water, oil, sugar, and yeast. Let rise for 15 minutes until bubbly. Add salt baking powder, baking soda, and egg. Mix well. Add flour one cup at a time until well incorporated. Cover with a clean tea towel and let rise approx 15-20 minutes.

Roll dough into a large rectangle approximately 1/4-1/3 inch thick. Brush liberally with melted butter and evenly sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Starting with one long edge, gradually roll up entire dough into a long log. Cut rolls approximately 1-inch thick using a serrated knife. Place in greased baking pans and allow to rise. Once risen, bake at 425' for 15 minutes until just lightly golden.

2 C icing sugar
2 tsp maple syrup (Thank you to The Bells for my stash!)
1/4 C milk
2 Tblsp melted butter
1/4 C brewed coffee
Pinch of salt

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, and whisk until smooth. Drizzle over (or drown) warm (but not hot) cinnamon rolls. You may wish to add the coffee and milk gradually to get your desired consistency.
