Tasty Tuesday #1

Cinnamon Buns
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 package active dry yeast
1 cup warm milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs

Sugar Mixture:combine together in separate bowl
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 cup butter melted

Creamcheese Icing:
1/2 c butter, softened
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
1/4 cup cream cheese
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. lemon juice (you can add some zest too)

*(I do the following in my stand mixer now, I used to do it by hand, you can choose how you want to do it!) Preheat oven to 375F.

Dissolve the yeast in warm milk. Combine sugar, butter, eggs and salt. Stir in flour. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead until smooth. Place in a lightly greased bowl and turn once to grease top. Cover, let rise in a warm place about one hour.
Punch down, and roll the dough on a surface dusted with flour. Roll out to a rectangle shape.

Spread sugar mixture over the dough.

Begin rolling the dough down to the bottom edge. Cut the rolled dough into 1 3/4" slices and place into a lightly greased baking pan, allowing about 1 inch space between each.

Allow to rise again until nearly double in size (approximately 30 minutes). Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly golden.
Make icing & spread on warm buns.
