Jane Langeland


2 pkg (2 tsp. each) active dry yeast
c. warm water (110*)
1 c. warm milk (110*)
c. softened butter
c. sugar
1 t. salt
2 eggs
6-7 c. all-purpose flour

c. butter, softened
c. butter, melted
c. sugar
c. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon

2 c. powdered sugar
2-3 Tbsp. milk
tsp. almond or vanilla extract

In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in water; let it stand for 5 minutes. Add milk, butter, sugar, salt, eggs, and two cups of flour. Beat on low for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form soft dough.

Turn the dough onto well-floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic ~ 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl; turn once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled ~ 1 hour. Punch dough down and divide it in half.

Roll out each half on well floured surface into a 12x18 inch rectangle. Spread softened butter onto each rectangle, mix remaining filling ingredients and sprinkle them onto the dough rectangles. Roll up jelly-roll style. Cut each roll into 8-12 slices and place cut side down in two 13x9 inch baking pans.

Cover and let rise until doubled ~ 30 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan on wire rack. Combine icing ingredients and drizzle over rolls. Serve warm. Yield: 2 dozen.
