Cinnamon Rolls

Using the Monkey Bread recipe below: I used the other half of the bread dough and made cinnamon rolls. Roll out dough approx. 1/4 inch thick and spread butter on it. Top with cinnamon, brown sugar...if you spill toppings don't worry just toss it on with the rest. ;) Add raisens, and nuts.
Roll up.

Now get some fishing line (preferrably clean) and use it to cut your rolls. Take an end in each hand, pull it taut and slide under roll approx. 1 -1/2 inch, cross string over top, switch hands and pull.
Viola...this will give you a clean cut.
Place in oiled pan. Smash down to about 1 inch thick. Let rise and fill pan.

Half of the dough filled 2 ten inch dutchovens.

With lids on bake at 375 degrees until done (just until beginning to turn tan on top..20 to 25 min.). (Don't over bake because they will finish on the cooling rack.)
While still warm but not hot take out of dutchovens and place on foil. When cooled, add icing.
Have you ever tried elastic in the waistband? ;)
