Everything Nice

Jon had a sudden need for cinnamon rolls.

Next thing I knew, I was licking sugar from my fingertips.

It didn’t take much more time than it would have to drive to the store for one of those cans that pop open with a belch of stale air. Here’s how he made it happen:

Cinnamon Rolls

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Filling:

4 Tablespoons butter

1 cup brown sugar

3 teaspoons cinnamon

Dough:

2 cups flour

2 Tablespoons sugar

4 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

3 Tablespoons butter

3/4 cup milk

Glaze:

1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

1/4 cup milk

Combine the filling ingredients to make a crumbly mixture.

Spread half of the filling on the bottom of a 9 x 9″ baking pan. (You may want to line it. This gets messy.)

In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Cut the butter into the flour mixture.

Add milk and work it into a soft dough.

Roll the dough into a 1/4″ thick rectangle.

Spread the remaining filling over the dough.

Roll the dough up and slice it into 12-18 rolls.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.

While they’re baking, mix up your glaze.

Drizzle with glaze while warm.
