Cinnamon-Glazed Butterhorns Recipe

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 TIME: Prep: 35 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. YIELD:24 servings


  • 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
  • GLAZE:
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons hot water


  • 1. 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.
  • 2. 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.
  • 3. 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.
  • 4. 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.
  • 5. 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. Yield: 2 dozen.
