Sunday Morning Cinnabuns...

DOUGH
1 cup warm skim milk (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
2 eggs, room temperature
1/3 cup "I can't believe It's Not Butter"
4 1/2 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast

FILLING
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon (Be Generous)
1/3 cup "Can't Believe It's Not Butter"

FROSTING
1 (3 ounce) package "1/3 less fat Neufchatel cheese"
1/4 cup "Can't Believe It's Not Butter"
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS
** In the kitchen aid mixer....Dissolve the yeast in the warmed milk, along with 1 tsp sugar from the 1/2 cup white sugar. Let stand, covered, about 10 minutes, until foamy.

**Add remaining dough ingredients and continue to mix using a dough hook for about 7 minutes, this is helping you knead the dough.

** Remove the dough from bowl and place in a warm area, allowing the dough to double in size, approximately 1 1/2 hours.

**In small bowl combine brown sugar and cinnamon for filling.

** Roll dough into a 16x21 inch rectangle (approximately the same size as my Silpat baking mat). Spread dough with 1/3 cup butter and sprinkle evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture.

**Roll up dough (lengthwise so you end up with a 21" roll) and cut with a bread knife into 12 rolls (approximately 1-3/4" each, or three finger widths). Place rolls in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. (or 2 -8 inch cake pans will do)

**Cover and let rise again for 30 minutes, while preheating the oven to 400 degrees.
**Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes. While rolls are baking, beat together cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, confectioners' sugar (I recommend sifting it), vanilla extract and salt. Spread frosting on warm rolls before serving.
