2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup milk
1 tsp. salt

1 cup powdered sugar
3 tbsp. milk

Dissolve yeast in water and add 2 tbsp. sugar. Melt stick of butter and add to milk. Combine with yeast mixture. Mix in salt and flour. Let rise for 45 minutes.

Roll dough out on floured surface, forming a rectangle about -inch thick. Mix 1 cup sugar with 1 sticks of butter and add cinnamon. Spread over dough. Roll into a log and cut into -inch slices. Place on pan; let rise for 30 minutes.

Bake at 400˚ for 10-15 minutes. Combine powdered sugar and 3 tbsp. milk; drizzle over warm cinnamon rolls.

Thanks for sharing this recipe "arkmrs". My mom used to make the yummiest cinnamon rolls. I guess it's time I try making them too.
