Basic Sweet Roll Recipe
1 package of dry yeast placed in a 1/4 cup warm water
1 cup milk heated to just warm to the touch
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup shortening
1 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 cups flour
Combine the milk, sugar, shortening and salt let cool with the milk to slightly warm. Add 1 1/2 cups of flour, beat in the yeast and egg. Add the remaining flour beating until it forms a soft dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size.
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 tablespoon butter melted
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Combine all together.
Roll dough out into two rectangles on a floured board. Spread with half cinnamon filling mixture on each dough and roll up like a jelly roll sealing the edges.
Cut into 2 or 3 inch thick rounds and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet to rise for another 30 minutes.
Bake at 375 in a hot preheated oven for around 25 minutes or until lightly browned.
Frost while warm with cream cheese frosting below.
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 3 oz. package of cream cheese
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Beat together and spread on warm rolls.
