Ingredients:  
6 1/2-7 cups all purpose flour
2 T. instant yeast
2/3 c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 c. milk
1 c. water

1/2 cup brown sugar
1 T. cinnamon

Directions:
Directions:
In a large bowl combine 3 cups flour, yeast, 2/3 cup sugar and salt. Heat the milk and butter in a medium bowl in the microwave until butter is mostly melted. Add the water which should cool the mixture to about 120 F. Add the liquid to the flour mixture and add the eggs. Blend at low speed until moistened then beat 3 minutes at medium speed adding flour gradually to make a soft dough. When you have the 6 1/2 cups of flour in let the dough rest for 10 minutes to fully soak up the liquid. Then if the dough is still very sticky add up to a 1/2 cup more. Knead for 5 to 8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl turning the dough to grease the top. Cover; let rise in warm place until double, about 1 hour. Meanwhile prepare the filling. Combine the sugar and brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside. Take butter out of the refrigerator to soften.
Punch down the dough. Divide into 2 parts. On a lightly floured surface ( I use parchment paper) roll each half to 15x12 inch rectangle. Spread with 3 tablespoons of softened butter and sprinkle with half of the filling. Roll up the dough and pinch to seal the edges. Cut into 12 slices, place cut side down in 2 greased 9x13 pans. Cover lightly to rise till almost double about 35 minutes While the rolls are raising, heat oven to 375 F Bake for 20 -25 minutes until golden. Allow to cool slightly and frost with cream cheese frosting or your favorite frosting.
