Golden Raisin Almond Cinnamon Buns

I hope everyone had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend.  We did!  We spent the weekend with friends and play dates.  Today was spent with my sweet boys and an afternoon of shopping. 

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.

Roll into a rectangle and trim if necessary

Evenly spread filling and start to roll from long end

Pre-score the slices to get even rolls

Drizzle with frosting and almonds
