Cinnamon Rolls

My family was in the mood for cinnamon rolls today after church so we made these!  I'm always looking for cinnamon roll that's soft and light.  These were awesome!  Probably because I had a good helper and we were patient in the rising!

2 cups scalded milk                                                     1 cup warm water
2 heaping TBL yeast                                                   2 tsp salt
½ cup sugar                                                                 2 eggs
7 cups flour (approx.)                                                  1 TBL oil

Put sugar and salt in pan.  Add milk.  Add water; when body temp, add yeast, dissolve.  Add 2 cups flour or until spongy (sometimes 4 cups...we had to do 4 cups).  Add 1 cup raisins then oil and eggs.  Gradually add rest of flour.  Let rise 1 hour.  Roll out.  Line with butter.  Fill with cinnamon and brown sugar.  Roll up and slice.  Let rise and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

We made one pan with just cinnamon sugar and brown sugar in the middle and the other pan we added cinnamon sugar, brown sugar, coconut, and chocolate chips.  They were both soft!  YUM!!!

For the glaze I just mixed powdered sugar (approx. 2 cups) with milk (approx 2 TBL), about 1 TBL butter, a dash of salt, and a dash of vanilla.  Sorry about the approximates but that's just how I make glaze.  Add more powdered sugar if too thin.  Add more milk if too thick.
