Cinnamon Rolls

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup fat
2 cakes or packages quick-acting yeast
1/2 cup lukewarm water
5 cups flour (more or less)
2 eggs

Instructions

Scald the milk. Place the sugar, salt and fat into a mixing bowl; pour hot milk over them. Stir well. Soften the yeast in lukewarm water, then add to other ingredients. Then add 2 cups flour to the mixture; mix well. Add the eggs and beat well. Add enough flour to form a dough that is soft but stiff enough to handle. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead dough until it is soft and elastic. Let it rise in a greased bowl until doubled in size. Shape dough into rolls. You can roll it out, then place melter butter, sugar, cinnamon, and raisins or nuts on it if desired, then roll up and slice. Again let the dough rise until doubled. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 12-15 minutes. Do not overbake.
