Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls

I didn't know what recipe to post today.  I hadn't made any new Facebook recipes this week to review.  Then it dawned on me that last weekend my sister and brother in law were visiting.  I made Cinnamon Rolls for breakfast and they were a disaster.  I rushed them and didn't let them raise long enough.  I forgot to put in the cinnamon so I sprinkled some on top before I baked them.  We almost had Cinnamon Rolls without any cinnamon.  I had to redeem myself and prove that I could make decent rolls.  Of course, my dad will eat them no matter how they look.  This is the recipe for the ones I made today.  It is the same recipe I use to make white bread in the bread machine.

My Own Cinnamon Rolls

In the bread machine put in:

1 cup warm water
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 1/4 teaspoons dry yeast
4 tablespoons melted butter or 4 Tablespoons oil
3 cups flour
1 Teaspoon salt

Set the machine for the dough setting and let it go.

When the dough is ready, turn the dough out on a lightly floured surface.
Roll it into a rectangle about 10 x 14, brush it with butter, sprinkle with brown sugar
until it is well covered, sprinkle with nuts (chopped quite small) and top it with cinnamon.
I also put raisins on top for most of the family.  My husband doesn't like the raisins.
When all these ingredients are in place, I take the rolling pin and lightly roll everything together.

Then roll up the rectangle from the long side.  Don't roll too tight.  Seal the seam and cut into 12 slices and place in a greased 9 x 13 pan.   Cover with a towel and let rise until the rolls have doubled.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

While they are hot, mix a glaze of powdered sugar and a little milk and vanilla.  Drizzle over the rolls.
