Ingredients

  • For sweet rolls:

  • 1/4

    cup frozen shortening, cut into small pieces

  • 1/4

    cup cold butter, cut into small cubes

  • 2 1/2

    cups self-rising flour

  • 1

    cup buttermilk

  • Wax paper

  • 6

    tablespoons butter, softened

  • 1/4

    cup granulated sugar

  • 1/4

    cup firmly packed light brown sugar

  • 1/2

    teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • Vegetable cooking spray

  • Creamy Glaze

  • For creamy glaze:

  • 1

    cup powdered sugar

  • 1/2

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 3

    tablespoons heavy cream, plus an extra tablespoon

Directions

Preheat oven to 450. Cut shortening and butter into flour with a pastry blender or fork in a medium bowl until crumbly and mixture resembles small peas. Freeze 10 minutes. Make a well in center of flour mixture; add buttermilk, and stir with a fork just until dough comes together. Turn dough out onto a heavily floured surface, and knead 8 to 10 times. Transfer dough to a heavily floured piece of wax paper about 18 inches long. Roll dough into a 14- x 10-inch rectangle. Spread dough with softened butter, leaving a ½-inch border. (Make sure butter is very soft and spread it gently.) Stir together sugars and cinnamon; sprinkle over butter. Lift and tilt wax paper, and roll up dough, jelly-roll fashion, starting at 1 long side and using wax paper as a guide. Cut dough into 14 to 16 (1-inch thick) slices. Place rolls in a lightly greased (with cooking spray) 9-inch round pan. Bake at 450 for 13 to 15 minutes or until rolls are golden brown. Cool in pan on a wire rack 5 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare Creamy Glaze: Whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and heavy cream. Whisk in up to 1 tablespoon heavy cream extra, 1 teaspoon at a time, until smooth and creamy. Drizzle over rolls.
