Prize Winning Sweet Rolls presented by Bluebird Haven

1 cup milk
3 Tbsp. butter
¼ cup sugar
2 ¾ - 3 ½ cups bread flour, divided
1 Tbsp. yeast
1 Tbsp. dough enhancer (optional)
1 tsp. salt
1 egg, beaten
Melted butter
½ cup brown sugar
4 tsp. cinnamon

¼ cup butter
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup milk or cream
1 tsp. vanilla
Powdered sugar

Heat milk and butter just until butter is melted. Add sugar, 1 cup flour, yeast, dough enhancer, salt, and egg. Beat 2 minutes. Add remaining flour to form a soft dough. Knead. Let rise until double in size; punch down and let rise again. Roll out into rectangular shape. Spread with melted butter; sprinkle with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll up, cut, and place in 2 9-inch square baking pans (or equivalent). Bake at 350º for 18-20 minutes or until done. Don't over-bake. Cool.

For frosting, melt butter; add sugar and stir over medium heat until boiling. Remove from heat and stir in milk or cream. Return to heat and stir until boiling again. Remove from heat and cool 5 minutes. Add vanilla; then beat in powdered sugar to desired consistency (less to drizzle over rolls, more to bring to spreading consistency). Apply immediately.
