Cinnamon Rolls in the Breadmaker

Cinnamon Rolls (with a bread machine)
1 C milk
1 egg
4 Tbs butter/margarine
3 1/3 C flour
3 Tbs sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp bread machine rapid rise yeast OR 2 tsp active dry yeast

1/4 C butter, melted
1/4 C sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 C powdered sugar
1-2 Tbs milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

*add all roll ingredients to bread machine, set for dough cycle (may need to add a touch of flour during the cycle if its too sticky)
*when cycle is complete, turn on to lightly floured surface and knead for 1 min then let rest for 15 min
*roll dough into a rectangle (its HUGE, lol), spread melted butter over dough within 1" of edges
*sprinkle remaining filling ingredients over top butter (SEE BELOW***)
*roll dough up tightly on the long side, sealing edges
*form into a 12" evenly shaped roll (i don't really do this, i just make sure its even looking)
*slice with a knife or dental floss 1" pieces
*place pieces into a greased 13x9 pan cut side down
*cover and let rise in a warm place for 30-45 min
*bake in a preheated oven 375° for 20-25 min, until golden brown
*cool in pan on rack for 10 min, then drizzle with frosting

***i do NOT spread the butter and the sprinkle the other filling ingredients on the dough. i like it more 'evenly flavored' so i melt the butter and then mix into the butter the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg then paint it on the dough. its a tad messy when cutting the rolls, but just so much better flavored!
