My favorite cinnamon rolls

2 1/4 c. scalded milk, heated
1/4 c. hot water
2 packages yeast
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. oil
1 Tbls. salt
6 c. flour
2 eggs

In a large bowl, add beaten eggs, sugar, oil and salt. Add scalded milk & mix up well, then add yeast & 6 cups of flour; mix up well. Dump our dough on floured surface and add more flour as needed. (The dough should be sticky) knead for about 5 minutes. Put in greased bowl and let rise until doubled in bulk (about 1 1/2 hours).
Roll out (don't make too thin) in an oblong shape; spread with butter, cinnamon, sugar, (nuts & raisins optional). Roll up and cut them 1 to 1 1/4 " thick, put on greased cookie sheet and let rise another hour. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Let cool and frost.

I am a sucker when it comes to thick gooey fattening breads for breakfast. I love it! I love to frost these with a butter cream frosting, or a thin glaze (depending on the mood I'm in). Enjoy...Because we sure do!
