Cinnamon Rolls

This recipe combines using and Cooking light's triple play recipe. 

Ingredients for bread: 
1 1/4 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup light brown sugar
dash of molasses
2 Tbsp white sugar
1/8 tsp cardamom
1/4 tsp ground coriander
2 Tbsp butter
1 1/4 tsp salt
3 cups bread flour
1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast

Cinnamon roll filling: 
2 Tbsp melted butter
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon (sometimes I add more)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla (sometimes I add more, but I like vanilla :))

Directions: Place items in the bread machine in the order specified by your manufacturer. Select dough cycle. Once the dough cycle is finished, roll the dough into a 9 x 13 inch rectangle. Brush the dough with 2-3 Tbsp butter (as needed). Mix brown sugar and cinnamon in a separate bowl. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture over melted butter (leave room to seal the roll). Sprinkle walnuts. Beginning with a long side, roll up dough, jelly roll fashion, pinch seam to seal. Cut into 3/4 inch slides and place on a jelly roll pan (I use my large pampered chef baking stone). Cover and allow to raise in a dark draft free place for 1 hr or until the the rolls have doubled in size (I place them in my small oven on warm cycle). Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 15-20 min or until the rolls are golden brown. Allow to cool then glaze.
