Easy Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls

I have a bread machine that my mom gave me for my birthday years ago and I love using this thing. Not only does it make really good bread..but I can make fast dough for pizza, cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls. So that's what I did here. I put all the ingredients in my bread machine and let it do all the mixing, then I took it out, rolled it into a 12x12 sheet and put a thin layer of butter all over it. Then mixed 1 cup of sugar with 1Tablespoon of cinnamon and sprinkled that mixture over the butter. I rolled it up and cut into slices. Here's a picture of my first batch.

You have to grease the pan, cover it with plastic wrap and let them rise for about 3 hours or until they double in size.

3 hours later, they have doubled in size. Now I just bake them at 350 for 20 minutes. 

How easy is that? For a homemade icing I mix 1 cup of powdered sugar with 1 Tablespoon milk and 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract and pour over cinnamon rolls. 

Now if these pictures aren't reason enough to buy a Bread Machine, you can also read my article on my top ten reasons like mine.
