2.5tablespoonsmilk(2-3 tablespoons depending how thick you want your icing to be)
2teaspoonsAlmond Extract(We love a stronger almond flavor in the icing. If you do not, feel free to start with less than 2 and add a bit at a time until you reach the desired flavoring.)
Dissolve your yeast in warm water and set aside.
Mix your scalded milk with your oil, sugar and salt and let cool to lukewarm.
Add 1½ cups sifted flour to your your milk mixture.
Then add your yeast and beaten egg, mixing until well combined.
Blend into your mixture 1-2 cups of flour until a soft dough forms.
Form into a ball and place in a greased bowl, turning once to coat.
Set in warm place until your dough is 1½ to double in size.
Flatten with a rolling pin into a rectangle with about 1/4 inch thickness on a floured surface.
Spread your butter evenly across your dough, sprinkle sugar and cinnamon evenly across the top (use as little or as much cinnamon as you desire).
Starting on the far long end, tightly roll your dough into a long log.
Cut dough log into 12 rolls. (To make it easy, I cut my log in half. Then I cut each half in half, making quarters. Then I cut the quarters into three rolls each.)
Place the 12 rolls spaced evenly in a lightly greased casserole crock pot.
Cover and cook on low until rolls have doubled in size.
Once rolls have doubled in size, wipe the condensation off of your lid, place paper towels or a flour sack tea towel pulled tightly under your lid and change heat setting to high.
Cook on high for one hour to one hour 15 minutes, turning your insert halfway through if your unit does not cook evenly, until the rolls are done
If desired, place rolls on the lower rack with your broiler on high for 1-2 minutes, until tops are slightly golden. *WATCH CONTINUALLY*
Mix together icing ingredients and drizzle over rolls and serve warm.

As with any of our recipes, carb counts, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly. As a result, your nutritional content depends on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish. The auto-calculation is just an automated estimate and should NOT be used for specific dietary needs.
All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline. Recipes should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
