Dad’s cinnamon rolls

Regarding cinnamon rolls……….so easy. We used this at Thanksgiving.

Buy a box of Betty Crocker…I think….bread roll mix…skinny box in cake box area of store where they have boxes of nut breads, muffins, etc.

(I went to the store today and couldnt find this one above, although I have seen it there before, but there were others. As long as it says mix for white bread or rolls and it rises….not a quick bread…like banana loaf or apple loaf…which does not have yeast! Then turn the box over to the back and be sure it it not for bread machines. It’ll work then. Then buy a rolling pin.)


Follow all the directions on back of box to make the dough rise, etc…then roll the dough out into a large 13×9 rectange… will need a rolling pin to do that……rub small amount of vegetable oil lightly across the rectangle of dough, then sprinkle about 3/4 cup…give or take….of brown sugar across the top, along with about a tablespoon of cinnamon…white dough just peeking out underneath….then little chunks of butter scattered across the top too. Then roll the dough up like a sausage, pinch the ends and cut into 1″ pieces. I think you will remember all this.

Place in an greased… with light margarine….13×9 pan and bake for about 20 minutes…..just lightly a PREHEATED 400 oven. Keep watching it after 15 minutes.

When rolls are baking…make frosting. You will need about a cup of powdered sugar, a teaspoon of vanilla, and a little bit of milk. DO NOT add the milk all at once. Stir the sugar and vanilla together, along with a teaspoon of milk…stir again…add another teaspoon of milk till medium frosting consistency occurs…not too thick, but not too thin frosting either…work with it. Then spread on warm rolls when the pan comes out of oven. YUM!!!!!!
