I cook for a logging crew, and these golden goodies are always a hit. I used to spread them with canned frosting, but then I came up with an easy glaze.
Total TimePrep: 35 min. + rising Bake: 15 min.
- 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
- 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
- 1 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 to 4-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup confectioners' sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 to 2 tablespoons hot water
- In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, butter, sugar, egg, salt and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
- Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
- Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll each portion into a 12-in. circle; cut each circle into 12 wedges. Roll up wedges from the wide end and place point side down 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Curve ends to form a crescent.
- Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks.
- For glaze, heat butter in a small saucepan until golden brown; remove from the heat. In a bowl, whisk the confectioners' sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and browned butter until smooth. Whisk in enough hot water to achieve spreading consistency. Brush over warm rolls.
