Sunday Brunch

Ever notice how the Food Network is like porn when you're hungry? Last night, I was starving, so naturally, I tuned into The Next FN Star, watched my boyfriend Duff dance circles around these kids, and surfed the internet for dinner inspiration. I never made it to dinner, but I did stumble across this recipe for a weekend sweet treat. From my table to yours...

Makes 12

1 package active yeast
1 cup warm milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup margarine, melted
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
4 cups flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
2-1/2 tbsp cinnamon
1/3 cup margarine, softened
8 tbsp margarine
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup cream cheese
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt

1. For the rolls, dissolve the yeast in warm milk in a large bowl. Add sugar, margarine, salt, eggs, flour and mix well. Knead the dough into a large ball, using your hands, dusted lightly with flour. Put into a large bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place about 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.

2. Roll the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, until it is approximately 21 x 16 inches and 1/4 inch thick.

3. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

4. To make the filling, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Spread the softened margarine over the surface of the dough, then evenly sprinkle with the brown sugar and cinnamon.

5. Working carefully, roll the dough from the long edge. Cut into 1-3/4 inch slices and place in a lightly greased baking pan. Bake for 10 min or until light golden brown.

6. While the rolls are baking, combine the 8 tbsp margarine, powdered sugar, cream cheese, vanilla, and salt. Beat well with an electric mixer until fluffy. When the rolls are done, spread generously with the icing.
