My friend commented - this is not cinnamon rolls, where is the icing? Ok, I will make the icing for his sake. As soon as they were frosted, the rolls were gone before i had a chance to take some pictures. Sorry!!!!!! These rolls are so good with or without the icing, we can now forget about Cinnabon

8 tbsp/1 stick/4 ozs/113 gm unsalted butter plus 1 tbsp for greasing baking dish
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
1 1/2 tsp salt
4 - 41/2 cups( 20 to 21 1/4 oz) unbleached all purpose flour, plus more for work surface
2 1/4 tsp instant yeast

2 tbsp corn syrup
2 tbsp heavy cream
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
3/4 cup light brown sugar
3 tbsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
Melt milk and butter in the microwave for 1 minute and put this in the bread machine bucket.
Add in water and the rest of the ingredients, the yeast should be on the top.
Select the dough function and then start.
When the dough is ready, remove from the bread machine bucket.
Punch down the dough and form into a ball, rest the dough for another 15 minutes.
While the dough is resting, preparing the filling.
Roll dough out into a rectangle 16 inches by 12 inches and spread the filling evenly over the dough , except for the top 1/2 inch of the dough.
Roll the dough, beginning with the long edge closest to you and using both hands to pinch the dough with your fingertips.
Moisten the top border with water and seal the roll.
Lightly dust the roll with flour and press on the ends if necessary to make a uniform 16 inch tube.
Grease a 9 by 13 inch baking dish.
Cut the roll into 12 pieces using dental floss and evenly distribute the rolls, cut-side up, in the greased baking dish.
Cover with plastic wrap and place in a draft-free warm spot until doubled in bulk, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
When the rolls are almost fully risen, adjust an oven rack to the middle position and heat the oven to 350 f.
Bake until golden brown and thermometer inserted into the center of the rolls registers 185 - 188 f, 25 - 30 minutes.
Invert the rolls onto a cooling rack and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
Turn the rolls upright on a large serving plate and use rubber spatula to spread with icing.
