Cinnamon Rolls

Patti Gibson

1 box yellow cake mix
5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 packages yeast
2 1/2 cups warm water
butter - at room temperature

Dissolve the yeast in warm water. Mix cake mix and flour together. Pour yeast mixture into flour mixture. Mix well and knead for 5 - 10 minutes - until no longer sticky. Place in greased bowl, cover and allow to rise about 1 1/2 hours or until almost doubled in bulk. Punch down and allow to rest about 10 minutes. Divide dough in two or three parts. Roll one section at a time on a floured surface until about 1/4" thick. Spread surface with lots of butter, sugar and cinnamon. Roll up jelly roll fashion; slice about 3/4" thick slices. Place in cake pans sprayed with Pam. Leave some room between rolls, remembering they will double in bulk. Let rise again at least 1 1/2 hours. Bake in 350 degree oven about 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cover with glaze while still warm. Glaze 1/2 stick butter (4 Tbsp.) - room temperature 2 cups powdered sugar 1 tsp. vanilla 3 - 6 Tbsp. hot water Mix together, adding more water by the teaspoon if needed. Pour over warm cinnamon rolls and allow to cool slightly before serving. These can be reheated in oven or microwave but are wonderful cold.

These are the most delicious cinnamon rolls I have ever made and are very easy to make. I cut mine about 1-1/2 inches thick instead of 3/4 inches and place them pretty close together. Otherwise they spread out too much and are pretty flat. I have made this recipe 3 times and everyone loves them.
