Cinnamon Rolls

Hey guys!
OK, yesterday my crazy cousin came over to our house, and he wanted to go to Masoom's, but nobody agreed with him. My aunt said to make some cinnamon rolls, so I accepted the request and did it. My sister Saneeya had some and said that they were really good.

For the dough
1 egg yolk
1 cup milk
1 tbsp each of sugar and yeast
3 tbsp melted butter
3 cups flour
For the filling
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 cup melted butter
pinch grated nutmeg
optional- raisins
(mix them together)
For the cream cheese glaze
Whisk together-
1/3 cup cream cheese, heated
1/3 cup softened butter
2 cups icing sugar

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm milk and set aside. In a large bowl mix melted butter and egg. Add 2 cups of flour and mix until smooth. Add yeast mixture. Mix in remaining flour until dough is easy to handle. Knead dough on lightly floured surface for 5 to 10 minutes. Place in well-greased bowl, cover and let rise until doubled in size, usually 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
When doubled in size, punch down dough. Roll out on a floured surface into a 15 by 9-inch rectangle. Spread melted butter all over dough. Mix sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over buttered dough. Sprinkle with walnuts, pecans, or raisins if desired. Beginning at the 15-inch side, role up dough and pinch edge together to seal. Cut into 12 to 15 slices.
Coat the bottom of baking pan with butter and sprinkle with sugar. Place cinnamon roll slices close together in the pan and let rise until dough is doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake for about 30 minutes or until nicely browned.
Spread glaze over slightly cooled rolls.
