Erika's Favorite Cinnamon Rolls

2 1/4 c. milk, heated
1/4 c. hot water
2 pkg. 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 and mix up well, then add yeast and 6 cups of flour; mix up well. Dump out 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 dough (don't make it too thin) in an oblong or rectangular shape; spread with butter, cinnamon & sugar mixture, and what other toppings you'd like to add (Raisins, nuts, etc.)
Roll up and cut 1-1 1/4" thick; put on greased cookie sheet and let rise another hour. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Let cool and frost.

(I like to mix the dough in my bread machine on the "dough" cycle.)

*we like to use a butter cream frosting with almond extract added, or we like to do a powdered sugar, milk and vanilla glaze)
