Author: Lucy Brewer
4cupsall-purpose flour, preferably White Lily
1tablespoonlight brown sugar
1 ½sticks cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1ouncecream cheese, cut into small pieces (save the rest of the package for the icing)
1cuplight brown sugar
Preheat oven to 425.
Lightly grease a 9x13 inch pan and an 8x8 inch pan and sprinkle a little of the filling mixture in each. You can also use round cake pans, probably 3 or 4.
Mix flour, baking powder, salt and brown sugar together until well blended. Add butter and cream cheese and mix in with fingers or pastry blender until crumbly. Stir in buttermilk.
Sprinkle a little more flour and knead in gently until you can handle the dough enough to get it out of the bowl and onto the counter.
Shape dough into a rectangle and roll out to about ¼ inch thickness. You may need to dip your hands in flour and sprinkle a little on the dough so you can handle it.
Spread dough generously with melted butter.
Mix brown sugar, cinnamon and salt until well blended. Sprinkle filling over the dough, leaving a ½ inch edge on the long end nearest you.
Starting with the long end furthest from you, roll the dough toward you, making sure it's tight with each roll.
When you reach the edge with no filling, dip your finger in water and rub along this edge. Then roll onto this edge and pinch together. The water helps seal the dough.
Cut the rolls at 1 ½ inch intervals and place in prepared dish. Brush the tops with melted butter. Bake for 20-25 minutes, just until the edges start to turn brown.
In large bowl, whisk together softened cream cheese, melted butter, milk, vanilla and powdered sugar until smooth and creamy. Pour this icing over the warm rolls, covering each one completely.
