1 teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS

1.Sprinkle yeast over warm water; stir until dissolved. Add 1/2 cup granulated sugar, shortening, and salt; stir until sugar is dissolved. Stir in enough flour to make a soft dough. Cover and let rise in warm place until double in size, about 45 minutes. Punch dough down.

2.Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray two 9” cake pans with no-stick cooking spray.

3.Combine brown sugar, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, and cinnamon in small bowl. Divide dough in half. Roll dough on floured surface into rectangular shape, about 1/4-inch thick and about 12-inches long. Brush with 1/4 cup melted butter; sprinkle with half the cinnamon sugar mixture.

4.Roll up dough, beginning with long side, jelly-roll style. Pinch seam together. Cut into 1-inch slices; place cut side in prepared pan. Repeat with remaining dough. Cover; let rise until double in size, about 30 minutes.

5.Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove to serving plate, if desired.

6.Combine all glaze ingredients in small bowl. Spoon over hot rolls. Serve warm.
