Cinnamon Rolls

2 Pkg yeast 14 cups flour

2 cups water 3/4 cup melted butter

2 Tbs sugar 1 cup sugar

1 cup evaporated milk 6 eggs

1 cup boiling water 1 tsp salt

  • Put 2 cups water and 2 Tbs sugar in bowl.

  • Add 3 cups flour with yeast sprinkled on top. Beat well.
  • Melt butter and add 1 cup sugar. Add this to mixture.
  • Add eggs, salt and remaining flour. Mix 10 minutes.
  • If you do not have bread mixer add last flour and mix with hands. (will be soft dough).
  • Let rise 2 hours or until double.

  • Roll to about 1/8 inch thick.
  • Spread with butter, sugar (I like to use brown sugar) and cinnamon.
  • Can add pecans, walnuts, or raisins.
  • Roll up like jelly roll and cut in 3/4 to 1 inch pieces.
  • Place on greased cookie sheet.
  • Let rise 1 hour
  • Bake 10 - 15 minutes or until brown at 350° F.

Frost with glaze. I like to use a thin frosting made with cream cheese and powder sugar butter and canned milk.

Mom was always a high achiever - waking at 6 am to stuff the turkey, make cinnamon rolls and everything else from scratch! Wow... I get tired just thinking about it (but will a reminiscent smile on my face :)
