Cinnamon Rolls with icing

These are absolutely wonderful cinnamon rolls - very rich and delicious! Be prepared - everyone you serve these rolls will want this recipe. The best part about making this cinnamon roll recipe is that the dough can be mixed and the rolls filled, shaped, and frozen.The night before I need to bake them, I take them out of the freezer to thaw and rise. When I awake in the morning, I just bake. So easy to make and so rewarding! These are my kids absolutely favorite breakfast. so this is my treat to them for their first day of school. Enjoy.

2 cups flour 
2 tablespoons sugar 
4 teaspoons baking powder 
1 teaspoon salt 
3 tablespoons butter
 3/4 cup milk 
4 tablespoons butter 
1 cup brown sugar or 1 cup white sugar 
3 teaspoons cinnamon 
1/2 cup powdered sugar 
1/4 cup milk
1 For the filling, in a small bowl combine softened butter, brown sugar and cinnamon to form a crumbly mixture. 
2 Sprinkle 1/2 of the mixture over the bottom of a 9x9 pan. 
3 In a large bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. 
4 Cut in softened butter (sometimes your hands are the best tools).
 5 Stir in milk to form a soft dough. 
6 Roll out dough on a lightly floured into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick.
 7 Spread the remaining filling on the rolled out dough.
 8 Roll up the rectangle, with a sharp knife slice into 18 small rolls (12 if you want them a little bigger).
 9 Bake for 20-25 min at 400°F. 
10 For glaze, combine powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl and stir until smooth. 
11 Once rolls are finished, drizzle on glaze and serve warm.
