Cinnamon Mixture
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup crushed nuts optional
  • ¼ cup butter softened
  • 2 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Combine the dough ingredients: starter, flour and milk. Set aside at room temperature for 10-12 hours, or overnight.
  2. Stir then add the remaining dough ingredients (excluding the butter) and mix well.
  3. Pour dough out onto a well-floured work surface. Knead until dough is no longer sticky, adding up to an additional cup of flour.
  4. Roll dough into a rectangular shape ½-inch in thickness.

  5. In a small bowl, combine together the ingredients for the cinnamon mixture.
  6. Lightly brush softened butter over the surface of the dough and sprinkle on the cinnamon mixture.
  7. Roll up dough and pinch to seal the seam. Cut into 1-inch slices.
  8. Place on a well-greased cookie sheet and let rest for 30 minutes.
  9. Bake in a preheated 350° F (176° C) oven for 30-35 minutes.
  10. In a medium-sized bowl, beat frosting ingredients until smooth. Spread frosting over warm cinnamon rolls.
  11. ENJOY!
Recipe Notes

From Kimberly Kozicki: "I used my stand mixer to put the dough together. I put all the dry ingredients into the mixer bowl, added the wet ingredients, then used the dough hook. I let the mixer run for 4 to 7 minutes, at medium speed, and the dough came out perfectly!"
