2 Tsp Salt
2 Eggs, slightly beaten
7 C Flour

1 3/4 C Sugar-divided
3 Tbsp Cinnamon

2/3 C Melted butter
4 C Powdered Sugar

Roll up dough jelly roll style & pinch end edges together to seal. Cut into 12 equal slices. Coat bottom of 9"x13" pan & an 8" pan with remaining 1/4 C sugar & 1/2 C melted butter. Place slices close together in pans. Let rise in warm place until dough has doubled in bulk, approx. 45 mins. Pre-heat oven 350. Bake 25-30 mins or until slightly browned. Cool slightly, cover with glaze. TO PREPARE GLAZE-Mix melted butter, powdered sugar, & vanilla. Add hot water 1 tablespoon at a time until glaze reaches desired spreading consistency.
