Temple Cafeteria Rolls / Cinnamon Rolls

DJ's aunt works in the cafeteria at the Las Vegas Temple and taught us how to make their recipe for rolls and cinnamon rolls last night. I love that you can make either kind of roll from the one recipe. They were delicious! Thanks, Stefanie!

3 c. warm water
1/4 c. potato flakes
1/2 c. powdered milk
3/4 c. sugar
1 T. salt
2 T. instant yeast
2 eggs
1/2 c. oil
Bread Flour (about 3 lbs -- until dough pulls away from sides of bowl)

Mix all ingredients in bowl of stand mixer -- adding flour about 1/2 - 1 cup at a time. Once dough is pulling away from sides of bowl and dough has formed a soft ball (still slightly sticky), punch dough down in bowl, cover with a clean towel and let sit in a warm spot for about an hour. Optionally, can let dough rise 2 or 3 times, punching down after each rise -- this creates a softer dough, but is not necessary.

For Rolls:
Roll into strips/snakes and tie into knots. Place on parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Let rise, covered for about 30 minutes. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 14 minutes, rotating the pan half way through.

Butter tops of rolls when pulled out.

For Cinnamon Rolls:
1 c. butter, softened
1 1/2 - 2 c. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. cinnamon

3 1/2 c. powdered sugar
3/4 c. butter, softened
2 Tbsp. + 2 tsp.  milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
