Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls

Add ingredients in order:
1/4 cup water
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup melted butter
1 large egg at room temp well beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 env. SAF perfect rise yeast
4 1/2 cups white unbleached bread flour
*knead dough*

1 cup light brown sugar
3 TB of cinnamon
1/2 cup butter at room temp

4 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup butter
1 3/4 cups powder sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Let rise 1 hour.  Then beat down and roll out on oiled counter into a rectangular shape.  Spread butter first and then sprinkle filling.  Roll up from the long side of the rectangle keeping the full length of your rectangle.  Cut into  1 1/2 inch discs.  Place on greased pan of choice.  Let rise one hour.
Bake at 335 for 20 minutes

Directions for frosting:
Add cream cheese and butter to mixer on low for 6 mins.  Then whip on high for 10 mins.  Add 1 cup powder sugar, whip 1 min.  Add 3/4 cup powder sugar, whip 1 min. Then add vanilla, whip 1 min.

NOTE: I don't know why the frosting instructions are so funky, but it works!  I love how whippy this frosting is :)  Also, I usually use the Kirkland brand salted butter.  This last time I made the frosting I used Western Family butter.  It was NOT as whippy :(  The best part is the frosting!  You want it just right :)
