Cinnamon Rolls

I've had several requests for the recipe for the cinnamon rolls so thought I'd just go ahead and share it here.


1 1/2 cup warm milk
1 1/4 cup warm water
1 pkg. dry yeast
1 cup warm water
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
10-12 cups flour or enough to make a soft dough
butter or margarine, softened
brown sugar

Warm milk and combine with 1 1/4 cup warm water. Dissolve yeast in 1 cup warm water. Combine eggs, sugar, salt and oil; add to milk and water mixture, then add yeast mixture. Using an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook, add flour a little at a time, until stiff dough is formed.

Mix dough together at 5:00 P.M. Let stand in a greased bowl until 10:00 P.M. Cut dough in half; roll each half into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick and spread with softened butter or margarine. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon and brown sugar. Roll up from long end; cut into 1-inch slices. Place in greased pans until morning. DO NOT COVER OR REFRIGERATE! In the morning, bake rolls 10-13 minutes in 350ยบ oven.

Drizzle with powdered sugar icing, if desired, after removing from oven. I use strong coffee and half and half to thin my icing. Makes about 3 dozen large rolls.

( I usually punch the dough down a time or two or three between 5:00 and 10:00 p.m. as needed.)
I also usually only make a half of a can easily get 18 large rolls.

Hope you enjoy!

There's no way to beat good cinnamon rolls, in my view!
