Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls

So Jason and I purchased a bread machine shortly after we were married 2 years ago and slowly I have been trying to use it more and more.

Today I decided I would tackle Cinnamon rolls. I mostly used the recipe in the manual but did a bit of modifications. I split the bread flour in half and used whole wheat flour for the second half (in doing this I added a little more water as it wasn't mixing very well). I also used some nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice in the sugar/cinnamon mixture.

They turned out pretty darn good, I would do a different icing/glaze next time though.

Cinnamon Roll Dough
1 Large Egg room temp plus enough water to equal 1C
3 TBSP C Olive Oil
1/3 C sugar
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1 3/4 C Bread Flour
1 3/4 C Whole Wheat Flour
2 tsp Active Dry Yeast

1/3 C melted Butter
1/4 C Sugar
2 TBSP Cinnamon
2 tsp Nutmeg
1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice

1/2 C Powdered Sugar
3 TBSP Powdered Sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla

Mix on Dough Course in Breadmaker (takes about 1hr 30 min)
Place dough on lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 12x6 inch rectangle and spread with butter. Combine and sprinkle remaining filling ingredients over dough. Roll up tightly, jelly roll style, starting ith the longest side and cut into 1 inch slices.

Place in greased 13x9 pan about 1/2 inch apart and let stand in a warm place for 30 min or until doubled in size.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until done.
Mix glaze ingredients until smooth and drizzle over the top of rolls.

First Post-New to the Blog world

Hello everyone. I am new to this blog thing (as you can probably tell by the way it looks, and the fact that I created this site many moons ago and am just getting started). So here it goes.

My husband and I are trying to be healthier in our lifestyle, and with that comes cooking at home and finding new recipes that are a bit better for you. (not to say I don't have some that are sinfully bad for you as well)

So this blog will hopefully be the place that I can take pride in some great cooking accomplishments and share great recipes that I find out there.
