4 cups all-purpose flour
1 package active dry yeast
1 cup warm milk, scalded and skimmed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
one third cup butter, softened
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup cream cheese
1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt

Dissolve the yeast in warm milk. Combine sugar, butter, eggs and salt. Stir in flour. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead until smooth. Place in a lightly greased bowl and turn once to grease top. Cover, let rise in a warm place free from draft about one hour or until dough has nearly doubled in size.
Punch down, and roll the dough on a clean surface lightly dusted with flour. Roll f out to a rectangle shape until it is approximately 21 inches long and 16 inches wide by 1/4" thick. If dough begins to resist stop working and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400F.
To make the filling, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Spread the softened but evenly over the surface of the dough, and then spread evenly with the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Starting from the long side, begin rolling the dough down to the bottom edge, jelly roll style. Cut the rolled dough into 1 3/4" slices and place into a lightly greased baking pan, allowing about 1 inches space between each.
Put the rolls into a warm place and allow to rise again until nearly double in size (approximately 30 minutes). Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly golden.
While the rolls are baking, makes ingredients for icing. Beat well with a rotary mixer until light and fluffy.
When the rolls are done, drizzle generously with the icing while still warm.
