3 eggs
12 c all-purpose flour, or more if needed

1 c sugar
2 tsp ground saigon cinnamon

c and 1 T butter or margarine, softened
1 tsp 100% pure bourbon vanilla extract

Roll up tightly lengthwise, sealing edges. Cut into 12 slices. Place in greased 9x13 inch pan. Repeat with remaining dough. Cover.
5. Let rise 30 to 45 minutes until nearly doubled.
6. Bake in preheated 350 oven for 25 to 30 minutes.
