Rolls: Place ingredients in machine following the specifications of that particular machine. Set for dough cycle (about 1 hr. 40 minutes in my Hitachi B101 - Debbie Carlson). After complete on dough cycle, remove from machine & roll out to 17 x 10 (approx) rectangle.
Filling: Mix together brown sugar and cinnamon. Spread softened butter over dough. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon mixture over top. Roll tightly from long end, pinching edges closed when completely rolled. Slice rolled dough into 1/2" slices (or larger if a larger bun is preferred ).Place into greased cake pans. ( I use 3 - 9" pans ) I usually get 19 - 20 buns from this.
Let rise until doubled. Bake at 350 for 15 - 20 minutes, until golden. Do not overbake.
Frosting: Spread on very warm rolls. They are best when eaten fresh, but we have found that 10-15 seconds in the microwave rejuvenates them!
Note: I made these in my Hitachi B101 and the dough turned out beautifully!
I added chopped nuts to the filling though and doubled the cinnamon. I also sliced my rolls about 1" and placed them in a non-stick 13x9" baking pan which rendered about 10 large rolls. Also, because I don't care for a cream cheese frosting, I used 3 c powdered sugar, 4 Tbsp. softened butter, 1 tsp. vanilla and about 3 Tbsp. milk which made lots of frosting, perhaps too much.
