Sweet Dough Cinnamon Rolls

Sweet Dough:
Work Time: 20 minutes

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 t. salt
1 1/4 cups 100 milk
1 package active dry yeast
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 T. unsalted butter, melted
Gradually Add:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


Mix 3 1/2 cups flour, sugar, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk yeast into 1 1/4 cups 100 milk.

Add milk and yeast mixture, eggs, and melted butter to the flour mixture. Stir until well blended. Add 1 cup flour and stir until the dough pulls away from the bowl. Now it’s ready to be kneaded. While kneading, slowly add remaining flour. To knead, fold dough in half. Give it a quarter turn. Push into the dough with the heel of your hand, then repeat Steps 4 & 5 for about 8 minutes.

Place dough in greased bowl and cover. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in size — about 2 hours.

While sweet dough rises, make the cinnamon filling. Mix sugar, soft butter, and cinnamon together until smooth and spreadable.

On a floured surface, roll out risen sweet dough. Work dough alternately to sides and corners. You want a 14 by 18-inch rectangle.

Filling:
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 cup wild frozen blueberries (optional)

Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
a couple of tbsps of half-n-half
Bake 350 for 25 mins.
