Cinnamon Rolls

1 cup warm milk (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
2 eggs, room temperature
1/3 cup margarine, melted
4 1/2 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast

1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, softened

1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt

Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough cycle; press Start.
After the dough has doubled in size turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
Roll dough into a 16x21 inch rectangle. Spread dough with 1/3 cup butter and sprinkle evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll up dough and cut into 12 rolls. Place rolls in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
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, vanilla extract and salt. Spread frosting on warm rolls before serving.

Thanks, Clair's Freebies! ~ When I was younger I can remember my mom making us cinnamon rolls almost every weekend. While I often take the shortcut by purchasing the Philsbury ones...I sometimes make it a special weekend and make my own too! Here is the recipe that I have!

Cherry French Toast
1 cup drained tart Montmorency cherries
3 Eggs
1 Loaf of challah bread, unsliced
8 ounces of cream cheese, at room temperature 1/2 Cup milk
1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon
powdered sugar, maple syrup, additional drained cherries and butter (optional)

Cut the ends off the loaf of bread and cut it into 6 slices 1-1/2 inches in size. Cut a slice three-quarters down the middle of each slice of bread. This make the bread look like it’s separate slices, but they are actually joined at the bottom. Set the bread aside.
Mix the cream cheese and 1 cup cherries together in a small bowl. Spread the mix in the pocket of each slice of bread.
Lightly oil a griddle or skillet and heat over medium heat.
In a bowl, beat the eggs and milk together. Dip the stuffed slices of bread into the egg mix, coating all sides. Place the coated slices in the pan and sprinkle them with cinnamon. Cook these slices until they are a golden brown color. Turn them once to cook the other side.
Place the cooked slices onto the cutting board. Cut each piece diagonally in halves. Sprinkle the slices with powdered sugar and cherries if desired. Can be served with maple syrup and butter.
