Working through the brambles and briars of life in search of the fruit.
But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

My sweet little boy asked if we could have Cinnamon Rolls for breakfast Thursday morning. Unfortunately, I was not keen on getting up at 4:00 am to have fresh rolls ready at 7:00 am. So, I promised I'd have them made for Friday morning. Here is my recipe, a few pictures and a couple of helpful hints.
2 1/4-oz packages dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup cooking oil
2 cups warm water (120 degrees - 130 degrees)
5 cups flour
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon GLAZE 2 1/2 tablespoons whipping cream 1/4 teaspoon vanilla 1 tablespoon butter, softened 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar pinch of salt
Put first 6 ingredients in blender and blend on high until thoroughly incorporated.
In large a bowl, pour blender mixture over flour. Mix well.
Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise until doubled...about an hour.
Mix sugars, butter and cinnamon together until a paste is formed.
I cover my workspace with plactic wrap (makes clean up so much quicker,) and sprinkle with flour.
Punch down dough. Dough may be refrigerated at this point until ready to roll out rolls.
Divide dough into two parts.
Roll out dough by hand into a rectangular shape.
Spread half of cinnamon-sugar mixture on dough (reserving other half for 2nd piece of dough.)
Carefully roll up dough.
Cut into equal pieces.
Put in buttered cake pan and let rise until doubled.
( At this point I usually cover with plastic wrap and put in fridge. They will rise overnight and be ready to bake in the morning. Just put out 15 minutes or so before baking.)
(If I'm sharing withfriends this is the point where I wrap them up to deliver.)

If you are baking them same day, let rise again until doubled.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 18 - 20 minutes.
MAKING THE GLAZE
To make glaze, put all ingredients into blender and mix.
Scrape into plastic ziploc bag to make icing rolls quick and easy.
While still warm out of the oven, ice with the glaze.
