Cinnamon Rolls

I love my morning glance at Google Reader, so many fun blogs--so many new recipes! I was assigned to bring 'hard rolls' to a lunch bunch. Now hard rolls are pretty boring but 'hot rolls' are another story. I came across a yummy looking recipe on My Kitchen Cafe. These delicious looking Buttermilk Cloverleaf Rolls were just what I was after. I pulled them out of the oven and served them piping hot, I took home an empty basket and called it a winner! This is a fun dough because it keeps in the refrigerator for about a week. Today I made cinnamon rolls with my 'refrigerator dough'. I used Pampered Chefs Sweet Cinnamon Sprinkle for the filling and topped them with my Mom's Caramel Icing. These were to die for!

Mom's Caramel Icing
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
3Tablespoons milk
Bring to a boil and cook for a minute. Cool for 5 minutes and add 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar. Quickly frost warm rolls. If frosting gets too thick add a little hot water. This frosting is delicious on Cinnamon Rolls, Pumpkin Cookies or muffins.
