Directions:
Combine milk, shortening, sugar and salt. Cool to lukewarm. Add yeast softened in warm water. Add eggs. Mix thoroughly. Add flour gradually; beat smooth. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic. Place in greased bowl; cover with damp cloth. Let rise in warm place until double. Punch down. Roll into large rectangle. Brush with melted butter, sprinkle with sugar, 1 tbsp. cinnamon and 1/2 c. raisins. Roll. Pinch edge to seal. On a greased cookie sheet, form into a ring, sealing edges. Cut roll crosswise. Fasten sealed edges together. Cut almost all the way through in 1/2 inch pieces, alternately turning one inside and one out. Allow to rise, covered until doubled. Bake in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. Cool and frost with powdered sugar icing. Garnish with cherries and nuts.

Personal Notes:
Grandma Scott used to make this when we were young kids. It was really quite good. The most fun was sneaking into the kitchen and trying to sneak the cherries off of the top without being caught.
