First Day of School Recipe

Yuummmm.  Warm, delicious cinnamon rolls are the perfect beginning to celebrate your child’s first day back to school. And what’s even better is that you can make these ahead of time to get some extra sleep in the morning. Your kids will thank you.

1 cup warm milk (110 degrees)
2 eggs, room temperature
1/3 cup margarine, melted
4 1/2 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup of white sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
1 cup brown sugar, packed

1. Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the
manufacturer. Select dough cycle; press start.
2. After the dough has doubled in size turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let
rest for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
3. Roll dough into a 16×21-inch rectangle. Spread dough with 1/3 cup butter and sprinkle
evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll up dough and cut into 12 rolls. Place rolls in
a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30
minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
4. Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes. While rolls are
baking, beat together cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, confectioners’ sugar, vanilla extract
and salt. Spread frosting on warm rolls before serving.
