Recipe Directions for Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls

  1. Dissolve yest in warm milk and warm water in a large bowl; let stand 5 minutes or until foamy. Add butter and next 5 ingredients; stir well. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Add 1/2 the flour to yeast mixture, stiring until a soft dough forms. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic; add remaining flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, to prevent dough from sticking to hands (will be sticky). Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place free from dragts, 1 hour or until doubled in size. Punch dough down; roll into a 16 X 12 inch rectangle on a floured surface. Coat surface of dough with cooking spray.

  2. Combine brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg; sprinkle over dough, leaving a 1/2 inch border. Sprinkle rasins over dough, pressing gently into dough. Roll up rectangle tightly, starting with a long edge, pressing firmly to eliminate air pockets; pinch seam to seal. Cut dough into 16 rolls. Place rolls, cut sides up, in a 13 X 9 inch baking pan coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise 45 minutes or until doubled in size.

  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  4. Uncover rolls. Bake for 22 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool in pan on a wire rack.

  5. Place powdered sugar and vanilla in a small bowl. Add milk, 1 tsp at a time, stirring to form a thick glaze. Drizzle glaze evenly over rolls.
