Toffee Cinnamon Rolls-A holiday tradition

With every holiday that I spend at my house, I make cinnamon rolls.  One year, I decided to add some toffee to my basic cinnamon roll recipe and a tradition was born.  These are the best rolls ever!!!  I can truthfully say this.  Plan some time into your day, make these special treats, and relax!!


Toffee Cinnamon Rolls
Caramel:

½ cup vanilla ice cream

½ cup brown sugar

1/3 cup butter

In a small saucepan, melt butter, add brown sugar and ice cream, bring to a boil and cook for 2 mins.  Pour caramel into the bottom of a lightly  greased 9x13 pan.

Rolls:

1 cup warm water

1 egg

3 cups bread flour

¼ cup white sugar

3 tablespoons instant powdered milk

1 ½ tsp. salt

5 tablespoons butter, softened

Place water , egg, bread flour, white sugar, powdered milk, salt, butter and yeast in mixer with dough hook attached.  Turn to medium speed and mix until combined.  Continue at medium speed for 6 minutes.  Place bread on floured workspace and knead 1/3 cup more flour into dough.  Place in a greased bowl and let rise 1-2 hours until doubled in size.  Roll out after rising.

Filling:

½ cup butter softened

1 tablespoons cinnamon

½ cup brown sugar

 Mix together the cinnamon and sugar.  Smear butter onto rolled out dough. Roll up and seal edges.  Cut in 1 inch pieces.  Let rise until doubled in size.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.  Invert baking pan onto a cookie sheet to cool rolls.  When cool sprinkle ½ cup toffee pieces on top of rolls.
