The last time I made these they started to disappear from the pan before I could frost them. I was so miffed that I never did get a good "finished" photo. I should be flattered that my husband and son like them so much that they couldn't resist an unattended pan of rolls, and that did serve to make the frosting that much thicker on the remaining spirals, hmm, one sounds good right now.
As I set up the mixer, on the counter next to the window, I noticed this little guy sitting quietly on the edge of the window box.
8 tablespoons butter, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups warm water
1 tablespoon yeast
4 cups flour plus some for rolling
3-4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar, packed
Frosting at bottom of page.
In a large mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the water. Allow to get frothy.
Into the mixing bowl, put 1 stick of soft butter and 8 oz. soft cream cheese. Beat until fluffy. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and 2-3 cups powdered sugar. Beat until spreadable consistency.
I halved it for a 9x13.
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon maple flavoring
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
3 tablespoons brewed coffee
Whisk this all together until smooth and pour/drizzle over cinnamon rolls.
Have a cup of the rest of the coffee with one of these, it will make the whole day seem better! Well it did for me.
