How to make eggnog cinnamon rolls:
I use a stand up mixer to make these cinnamon rolls and I also use the whisk and dough attachments.
First create the dough then covered it in plastic wrap and allowed for the it to rise until it the dough has doubled in size.
Then you roll out the dough on a floured work surface (don’t skip this step or you’ll have a big mess to clean up afterwards). Top the dough with the filling mixture and then roll tightly and seal the ends.
After you have rolled the dough, cut it into 12 even pieces and place them in a lined baking dish. Allow the rolls to finish rising and then bake!
After the bake time, allow the rolls to cool and top with the eggnog glaze. I have seen some recipes that call for a cream cheese frosting, but I think that the eggnog tastes better with the powdered sugar.
