Cinnamon Rolls


Give Melissa's yummy cinnamon roll recipe a try. We tried it this afternoon! Yum, Yum!
1/3 cups sugar
3Tbs yeast
1/2 cup oil
1 1/4 cups warm water
Mix until dissolved; cover and let stand for 15 minutes.
Mix in 2 beaten eggs to the yeast mixture.
Add 1 1/2 tsp salt and 4 1/4 cups flour.
Melissa mixes this in her kitchen aid for about 5 minutes until it's a soft dough. Roll dough into rectangle shape. Brush with 1/4 cup melted butter, sprinkle with 1 1/2 T cinnamon, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cups nuts (I opted for no nuts), a 3/4 cup raisins (I only used raisins on half the dough). Carefully roll dough, seal edges, and slice. Place on ungreased cookie sheet (I had a few extra so I also put them in a glass casserole dish) and let rest 10 mins. Bake at 425 for 10-15 minutes.
Frost with glaze while still hot. Glaze: 2 cups powdered sugar 1/4 cup hot water, 1 T soft butter. (I had some frosting left over from something else in the fridge so we just used that :)

Looks good! My Mom happens to be here this week and she just reminded me that she cut that recipe out of an old Friend magazine from the 80's!
