Cinnamon Roll Frosting.............
1 lb. powdered sugar
1/4 cup margarine, cut up
1/4 cup hot tap water
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix together until smooth, put on top of the cinnamon rolls after they have cooled a little bit.

Another note on the cinnamon rolls..

Put on a well floured surface
Roll out dough to about 6 inches by 18 inches, about 1/3 inch thick
Spread butter, cinnamon, and sugar on top of the dough with a spoon
Roll into a jelly roll
Pinch the two ends closed so the sugar and cinnamon doesn't come out.
Cut with a sharp knife or you can also use a string
Place on a cookie sheet, place them in an array of 3 x 4.
