Grandma Betty's Cinnamon Rolls

Grandma Betty's Cinnamon Rolls

1 pkg. yeast
1/4 cup warm water
3/4 cup scalded milk
1/2 cup butter melted
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs beaten
4 1/2 cups flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water to proof

Add milk, melted butter, sugar, salt, eggs to yeast mixture and stir well.

Gradually add flour to mixture to form soft dough.

Put in oiled bowl and let rise till double in size.

Punch down and roll out 1/2 inch thick into oblong rectangular shape.

Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with white sugar and cinnamon to taste.

Roll dough lengthwise and cut into 3/4 inch sections. Place dough pinwheels into 2 greased 13 X 9 baking dishes. Place pinwheels touching each other

Let Rise until doubled in size.

Bake at preheated 350 degrees oven for 15 to 20 minutes

Frost with powdered sugar and milk glaze.

This makes a large batch and I split the dough into two sections and roll out separately.
Raisins can be added. Can also be baked in one large metal baking sheet.

  3. I made these Monday night and they were out-of-sight! I loved them. It was a nice big batch and we froze 2 round cake pans worth for later.
