Cinnamon Rolls

I told Shannon ages ago that I would post this recipe for her.  I know there was a story behind it, but I can’t remember it now.  (Shannon, maybe you can refresh my memory!)   I do remember we were talking at church about cinnamon buns, and she told me that she’d never made them before without yeast.  So here it is:

Oh, before I forget, I’m including the recipe for the glaze, but I have never made it.  The first time I made this recipe, they were gobbled up before I had a chance to glaze them.  I decided that since evidently everyone liked them just fine without it……..(and it’s just another bit of sugar that Ray doesn’t need).

Cinnamom Rolls:

2 Cups Flour
3 tsp baking powder
2 tsp white sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 Cup shortening
1 egg, well beaten
1/2 Cup milk
1/4 Cup margarine
1 Cup sugar (more or less)

Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in shortening.  Add milk and knead lightly.  Roll into a rectangle, about 1/2 inch thick.  Spread with margarine.  Cover with brown sugar and sprinkle liberally with cinnamon.  Roll and cut in 1-inch pieces,  and place on greased cookie sheet.  Rolls shopuld touch each other.  Bake at 425 F for 8-10 minutes. Partially cool and spread with glaze.


2 Cups icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Milk, as needed to blend

    (whiny voice) I want a new look for my blog.

    Since I’m avoiding the mountain of tasks awaiting me, I’m taking time to leave comments this morning. 🙂 Love the tea party pictures. Sarah and I had a Valentine’s tea for her friends and their moms a few years ago. Very fun.
