Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
- 1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- 2/3 cup sifted confectioners' sugar
- 1 tablespoon milk
- dash vanilla
Roll dough to a rectangle, about 18x6 inches. Brush with the melted butter. Combine brown sugar, chopped nuts, and cinnamon; sprinkle over dough. Starting at long edge, roll dough up, jelly roll fashion; moisten edges and seal. Cut roll into 20 slices. Place rolls, cut side down, into two lightly buttered round cake pans. Let rise for about 1 1/2 hours, until doubled. Pour the cream over the rolls then bake at 350° for 25 minutes. Combine confectioners' sugar, milk, and vanilla, adding more sugar or milk if necessary. Drizzle over rolls while still warm.
Makes 20 cinnamon rolls.
