A little while ago, I baked a bunch of various treats for a bake sale. One of the tasty items was a variation on a previous post of cinnamon rolls. I added golden raisins and almonds to the mix and it was yummy. I also changed the frosting up a bit to a plain powder sugar glaze, instead of cream cheese. I didn't want the icing to compete with the delicious raisins and almonds.
Follow the instructions for cinnamon rolls and filling in this post. When making the filling add 1/2 c. of golden raisins and 1/3 c. toasted slivered almonds. Bake as instructed.
Recipe for Glaze
2 c. powder sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
2 to 4 tbsp. water
In a medium bowl add powder sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Slowly add water one tablespoon at a time until you reach a smooth and slightly runny consistency. You want to be able to drizzle the frosting. Top with almonds.
