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:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
4 Tablespoons butter
1 cup brown sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cups flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons butter
3/4 cup milk
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.
