My "I don't have time to make cinnamon rolls" ..uh..cinnamon rolls

My kids love these almost as much as the real thing, but these are much quicker to make. 


1 1/2cups flour (I use half white and half wheat pastry flour)
3 TBS sugar
1 1/2 TBS baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup milk


3 TBS softened butter
liberally spinkled cinnamon sugar
1/3 cup chopped nuts(optional)
2 TBS raisens(optional)
1 TBS choc chips

3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
dash salt
2-3 TBS milk or enough to make a syrupy glaze

To begin, preheat your oven to 400.  In a large mixing bowl, combine the first 4 ingredients and mix well.  Cut in the shortening until you have a crumbly mix.  Add the one cup of milk and lightly toss until everything is incorporated.  Dump out onto your now floured counter.  Knead just enough to form it into a ball (about 8 times).  Roll out into asmuch of a rectangle as you can make  and it be about 1/2 in thick maybe a little thinner.  Spread with butter.  Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, nuts, raisens, choc chips.  Roll up jelly roll style.  Slice into 12rools and putin an ungreased 9X13 pan.  Bake about 20=25 min or until golden.  Remove from oven.  Pour icing over the top while still hot.  Serve.  Enjoy!
