    List of Ingredients

    2 cups flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup shortening
    3/4 cup milk
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 cup butter, melted ( or very soft)
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    chopped pecans (optional)

    1 cup powdered sugar
    1 to 2 tablespoon milk
    1/4 teaspoon vanilla


    Combine flour, baking powder and salt; cut in shortening.
    Add milk and 1 tsp. vanilla; stir with fork just until dough leaves sides of bowl.
    Roll dough out, on lightly floured surface, into a 1/4 inch thick rectangle.
    Brush top with butter (I prefer to use soft butter rather than melted).
    Combine cinnamon and sugar; sprinkle evenly over dough.
    Sprinkle with chopped pecans (or other nuts or raisins) if desired.
    Roll up, starting on long side.
    Cut into 1/2 inch thick rounds.
    Place rounds, with sides just touching, in greased 9" round pan.
    Bake at 425F for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
    Remove from oven and drizzle with glaze, serve warm.
    For glaze: Combine all ingredients and beat until smooth.
