Cinnamon Roll Muffins

*drool*  These were so tasty.  I made them on a Saturday morning so I could share them with the whole family.  We gobbled them right up.  They were actually really simple to throw together.  That's why I decided on making them.  A great weekend breakfast or treat. 

Isn't it pretty?

Cinnamon Roll Muffins
1 c. buttermilk
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
3-3 1/2 c. flour (I used 3 1/2 c.)

5 Tbsp butter, softened
1 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 c. powdered sugar
2-3 Tbsp milk
1/4 tsp vanilla

In your mixing bowl combine brown sugar, baking soda, salt, vanilla and egg.  Mix well.  Pour in buttermilk and then the flour.  Mix until thoroughly combine.  You don't want this super sticky, so it's easy to handle.  Use your hook and knead it for a few minutes.  If you don't have the hook then knead on a lightly floured surface and knead for a minute or two until nice and smooth. 

Roll your dough out into a 12x24 inch rectangle.  Spread with softend butter for filling and spring with brown sugar and cinnamon.  

Roll your dough starting at the wide side and roll towards you.  Make sure it's good and tight.  Cut in half, and then cut the halves in half again  Giving you 4 pieces.  Then you want to cut those into 3 rolls.  Giving you 12 muffins total.  Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray or use paper liners.  Place your muffins in the cups and bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes or until they start to turn golden brown.  Let them cool on a cooling rack.  When they are completely cool, make your icing and and drizzle the tops.  I just dunked mine in the icing and it was perfect.
