1/2 cup melted butter (and some more for the pan.)
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
2/4 cup walnuts, pecans (anything you want to put in the roll.)
1/4 package of yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons hot water
Warning!This is a very time consuming RECIPE, Clear your planner before BEGINNING. Estimated 2 hours.
Let's get started!
Dissolve yeast in the 1/2 cup of warm water.
Now in a mixing bowl add milk, melted butter, egg and salt together. Then mix in 2 cups of flour and stir.
Add half of the dissolved yeast.
Mix together and if it seems too wet, add 1/4 cup of flour. You can continue adding the yeast and 1/4 cup of flour until dough consistency, or stop here. (which is what I did)
Knead dough on floured counter for five minutes. Place in greased bowl, cover and put in fridge for 1 hour. This is so the dough can rise.
When the dough has risen, knead then roll onto floured surface into a rectangle.
Spread melted butter all over dough and preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
Mix together the sugar and cinnamon together and spread over dough. Now is also the time to sprinkle walnuts, pecans, or other delicious item into the roll.
Roll then cut starting in the middle until you have eight pieces.
CAREFULLY transport into thoroughly greased round pan and cover in more cinnamon mixture and butter if you choose.
Place in oven for 30 minutes until golden brown.
FOR THE glaze-
Mix butter, powdered sugar and vanilla in mixer.
Add hot water 1 tablespoon at a time until smooth. Cover the warm buns and enjoy!
