Low-Fat Cinnamon Rolls
From Cook's Country
Our leaner cinnamon rolls still have all the classic flavor. To make them, we skimped on the butter added to the dough, instead maximizing the flavor of the frosting to compensate. We added just 2 tablespoons of melted butter to the dough and made up for the loss of moisture with maple syrup. Light cream cheese and skim milk combined to make a lean, though still rich-tasting frosting. Traditional cinnamon rolls have 430 calories, 16 grams of fat, and 11 grams of saturated fat per roll. Low-Fat Cinnamon Rolls have 280 calories, 3.5 grams of fat, and 2.5 grams of saturated fat per roll.
Makes 12 rolls
Depending on the humidity, the dough may need up to 1/4 cup extra flour, as directed in step 2. If you don't have a mixer, in step 2, mix flour, yeast, and salt together in large bowl. Make well in flour, then add milk mixture to well. Sitr until dough becomes shaggy and difficult to stir. Turn out onto heavily floured work surface and knead until dough forms cohesive ball and is smooth, about 10 minutes. Proceed as directed.
