Cinnamon Rolls

I can't believe no one has posted this yet! I know we all have the recipe, but a blog of our family recipes would never be complete without this one.

Mix 1 tsp sugar in 1/2 cup warm water and then add 1 tbsp yeast. Let rise 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, scald 1 1/2 cups milk.

Add the following ingredients to the milk and let the butter melt:
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened

Add yeast mixture to the milk mixture.

Gradually add 5 - 7 cups flour, kneading after each addition.

Let rise one hour. Divide dough in half. Roll into rectangle 1/4" thick and butter dough all over. Sprinkle generously with brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll up and slice into 1/2 - 3/4 inch slices and place cut side down in greased baking dish or pie plate. Let rise one hour.

Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes. Cool in pans on wire racks. When cool, pour glaze over them.

Glaze: Combine 2 cups icing sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, and enough water to make runny icing in glass measure and pour over rolls.

I cut each dough half into 12 slices, to make four pie plates with 6 huge, mouth-watering rolls each.
