Moog's Quick and Easy Cinnamon Rolls

Rolls:
3 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
4 tsp. baking powder
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup milk
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
cup vegetable shortening, melted

Filling:
cup white sugar
cup melted butter
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Topping:
cup brown sugar
cup broken walnuts or pecans
3 tbsp. melted butter

Icing:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp. warm milk
1 tbsp. melted butter
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Sift flour with salt, baking powder & sugar into a large mixing bowl, and make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.

In another bowl, beat eggs until well mixed, pour into the center of
the dry ingredients, along with milk, pure vanilla extract and
shortening. (The shortening should be melted and cooled slightly,
so it is warm, not hot.) Mix by hand with a wooden spoon, or on the
lowest speed with a mixer.

Once the dough is holding together, turn out onto a floured board, knead for 1 minute. This dough is easy to work with if it seems sticky, sprinkle a bit more flour onto it as you work. Turn the dough over once or twice as you are kneading, then roll the dough out into a rectangular shape about 1/4-in. thick. Shoot for about a 9x13-in. rectangle, just like a baking pan, but don't worry if it is a bit bigger or smaller.

Combine the filling ingredients, mixing well in a small bowl, then spread onto the dough using a flexible spatula, the back of a spoon or a pastry brush, smoothing out from the middle to 1/2-in. from the edge. Roll the dough up into a jellyroll from the long side, and using a sharp knife, cut the dough as evenly as possible into 18 pieces.

Mix the topping together in a small bowl.

Use spray oil to grease the muffin pan, then divide the topping between 18 muffin tins.

After dividing up the topping, place one piece of dough, cut side down, in each muffin tin, on top of the walnut mix. Bake in preheated 350F. oven for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.

Remove the cinnamon rolls right away to cool, if some of the topping stays in the tin, just pull it out with a spoon and replace it on top of the muffin while it is still hot.

Prepare the icing by whisking all the ingredients together while the rolls cool for at least 10 minutes, then drizzle the icing over the rolls.
