Ingredients:  

4 1/2 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
1 pkg active dry yeast
1 cup milk
1/3 cup margarine or butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 eggs
3/4 cup packed brown sugar 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup margarine or butter
1/2 cup light raisins
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 tbsp half-and-half or light cream
1 recipe Powdered Sugar Glaze

Directions:
Directions:
In a large mixer bowl combine 2 1/4 cups of the flour and the yeast. In a small saucepan heat the milk, the 1/3 cup margarine or butter, the 1/3 cup sugar, and salt just till warm (120 to 130) and margarine is almost melted, stirring constantly. Add to flour mixture. Add eggs. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping sides of bowl constantly. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Using a wooden spoon, stir in as much of the remaining 2 1/4 to 2 3/4 cups flour as you can. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately soft dough that is smooth and elastic (3-5 minutes total). Shape into a ball. Place in a greased bowl, turning once. Cover; let rise in a warm place till double (about 1 hour). For filling, combine brown sugar, the 1/4 cup flour, and cinnamon. Cut in remaining margarine or butter till crumbly; set aside. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Roll the dough into a 12-inch square. Sprinkle filling over dough square; top with raisins and pecans. Roll up jelly-roll style; pinch edges to seal. Slice roll into eight 1 1/2-inch pieces. Arrange dough pieces, cut side up, in a greased 12-inch deep-dish pizza pan or a 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Cover dough loosely with clear plastic wrap, leaving room for rolls to rise. Refrigerate dough for 2 to 24 hours. Uncover and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. (Or, for immediate baking, don't chill dough. Instead, cover loosely; let dough rise in a warm place till nearly double, about 45 minutes.) Break any surface bubbles with a greased toothpick. Brush dough with half-and-half or light cream. Bake in a 375 oven for 25-30 minutes or till light brown. If necessary to prevent overbrowning, cover rolls loosely with foil the last 5-10 minutes of baking. Remove rolls from oven. Brush again with half and half or light cream. Cool for 1 minute. Carefully invert cinnamon rolls onto a wire rack. Cool slightly. Invert again onto a serving platter. Drizzle with Powdered Sugar Glaze. Serve warm. Makes 8 large rolls.
Powdered Sugar Glaze: In a bowl stir together 1 1/4 cups sifted powdered sugar, 1 tsp corn syrup, 1/2 tsp vanilla, and enough half-and-half or light cream (1-2 tbsp) to make of drizzling consistency.
