Step 1

In a glass measuring cup, add the water and cream.

Step 2

Heat in the microwave until warm, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Step 3

Make sure it's warm and not hot.

Step 4

Add the yeast and 2 teaspoons of sugar.

Step 5

Allow to foam for 5-10 minutes.

Step 6

In another measuring cup, add the buttermilk and warm as well. Making sure it's luke warm, add it to the yeast mixture.

Step 7

In another measuring cup, add the remaining sugar, salt, oil, butter and eggs, whisking to combine.

Step 8

Add to the yeast mixture in a standing mixer.

Step 9

Stir with a dough hook to combine.

Step 10

Add the flour over the top and the soy lecithin.

Step 11

Mix until the dough begins to form a ball then mix for 3 minutes, adding an additional 1/4 cup flour if you were too light handed with the first measurement and it needs more. I never do, but everyone measures differently.

Step 12

Remove the dough hook and place a towel over the bowl to rise for 1-2 hours in a warm spot.

Step 13

Very lightly flour the counter and roll the dough into a large, even rectangle.

Step 14

Spread the soft butter all the way to the edges.

Step 15

In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar, sugar and cinnamon with the corn starch.

Step 16

Sprinkle liberally over the butter, all the way to the edges.

Step 17

Roll into a tight log and using floss, slice the rolls by sliding it under the dough, bring it up and make an "x", pull it tight to cut through and set it in the lightly greased cookie sheet.

Step 18

Repeat until all of the rolls are in the pan and then drape with a towel to rise for 1-2 hours.

Step 19

Heat the oven to 350 degrees and bake for 20-22 minutes, watching the tops because as soon as they are golden the rolls are done and you DO NOT want to over bake.

Step 20

Remove from the oven, cool for 2 minutes and top with frosting while hot.

Step 21

Sneak into another room to enjoy one all alone before the husband and kids find you.

Step 22

In a bowl, with a handheld mixer, whip the cream cheese and butter together until softened.

Step 23

Add the corn syrup (karo syrup) and vanilla a beat again.

Step 24

Finally, slowly beat in the powdered sugar until desired consistency.
