Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water; let stand for 5 minutes. Add shortening, salt, 1/4 cup sugar, egg, cocoa and 1 cup flour; beat for 2 minutes. Stir in remaining flour and blend with a spoon until smooth. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Stir dough down and turn onto a well-floured surface (dough will be soft). Roll in a 12-in. x 9-in. rectangle. Carefully spread with butter.
  2. Combine cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle over butter. Roll up gently, beginning at wide end. Cut into 12 pieces and place in a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, for icing, cream all ingredients together in a small bowl until mixture is desired spreading consistency. Frost rolls while still warm. Yield: 1 dozen.
