"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Directions:
Directions:
Scald milk. Set aside to cool.
In bowl add yeast to warm water. Let sit about 5 min until it begins to bubble.
Add yeast to milk. Then stir in next 7 ingredients.
Turn onto floured board and knead gently. This dough will be sticky so add as much as 1 cup of flour while kneading just so it can be more easily handled. Remember, too much flour will make rolls heavy and dry.
Cover dough with a towel and let rise until doubled in size.
Punch down and roll out on floured board into a rectangle about 1/4" to 1/3" thick.
Spread sour cream over dough.
In bowl combine sugar and cinnamon then sprinkle on top of sour cream.
Roll up and cut 16 even slices (4 ounces each)
Place in 2 buttered 9" x 15" pans.
Let rise until doubled (may refrigerate overnight; if so, let rise before baking)
Bake at 350 for 20 min. or until lightly browned.
Beat all the frosting ingredients together until fluffy. Frost while warm.
