Laci and I made cinnamon rolls yesterday. This is one of my family's favorites, and they are pretty quick and easy (as far as cinnamon rolls go!)
Jiffy Cinnamon Rolls
In a mixer bowl with dough hooks attached, place:
3 cups flour
1 (18 oz) pkg white cake mix (dry)
4 Tbsp quick rise yeast (I use Saf Instant)
2 tsp salt
4 cups warm water
Mix until smooth. Add 5 to 6 more cups of flour or until you have a soft dough. Knead 6 to 8 minutes. Roll out into rectangle (no need to let rise!) and spread with 4 Tbsp melted butter. Mix together 1 cup sugar and 2 Tbsp cinnamon and sprinkle over butter. Roll up and cut into slices. I use a piece of thread, slide it under your roll, cross your thread ends and pull. Place on a greased baking sheet.
Cover and let rise 15 minutes. Bake at 350* for 15 to 18 minutes.
Frost with (what else?) Cream Cheese Frosting!
1 cube butter
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese
2 tsp vanilla
Beat until smooth.
Add 4 to 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
enough canned milk to get desired consistency
Beat until creamy.
Nothing like a pot of chili and a pan of cinnamon rolls that say "Fall is in the air!"
