From EatingWell:  March/April 1995

A biscuitlike pastry, based on a traditional German recipe, makes these much faster than yeast-raised cinnamon rolls.

12 rolls | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients

Rolls

Glaze

Preparation

  1. To make rolls: Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Pour boiling water over raisins in a small bowl; cover and set aside. Mix together brown sugar and cinnamon and set aside. Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl; set aside.
  3. Puree cottage cheese in a food processor. Add granulated sugar, milk, oil and vanilla and process until very smooth. Add the flour mixture and pulse 4 or 5 times, just until the dough clumps together. Turn out onto a work surface and knead several times to make a soft dough. Dust the dough and work surface with flour and roll into a rectangle, approximately 15 by 10 inches.
  4. Brush the melted butter over the dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the perimeter. Sprinkle with the brown sugar mixture. Run the rolling pin over the surface to gently press the sugar into the dough. Drain any liquid from the raisins and sprinkle them over the sugar. Starting at a long edge, roll up, jelly-roll fashion. Pinch edges of the dough together along the seam. With a sharp knife, trim ends. Slice the roll into 12 pieces. Set the rolls, cut-side-up, in the prepared baking dish. Bake until golden and firm to the touch, 25 to 30 minutes. Loosen edges and invert onto a rack to cool slightly. Turn the rolls right-side up for glazing.
  5. To make glaze: Whisk together confectioners’ sugar, milk and vanilla in a small bowl, using just enough milk to make a nice consistency for drizzling. Drizzle the glaze over the rolls and serve warm.
