Ingredients
  • Dough
  • 2 pkg. yeast
  • 1 c. warm water
  • 2/3 c. sugar, plus
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 c. warm milk
  • 2/3 c. butter
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 7 c. flour
  • Filling
  • 1 c. melted butter, divided
  • 1 3/4 c. sugar, divided
  • 3 Tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 c. chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1 1/2 c. raisins (optional)
  • Glaze
  • 2/3 c. melted butter
  • 4 c. powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla

Directions
  • Step 1 Mix together water, yeast and 1 tsp. sugar. Set aside.
  • Step 2 In a large bowl, mix milk, 2/3 c. sugar, melted butter, salt and eggs
  • Step 3 stir well
  • Step 4 add yeast mixture. Add half the flour and mix until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour until dough is stiff. Turn out onto board and knead for 5 to 10 minutes. Place in a well-buttered bowl and let rise (covered) for 1 1/2 hours. Punch down. Let rest for 5 minutes. Roll out into a 15 x 20 inch rectangle.
  • Step 5 Spread dough with 1/2 c. melted butter. Mix together 1 1/2 c. sugar and the cinnamon
  • Step 6 sprinkle over buttered dough. Sprinkle with nuts and raisins, if desired. Roll up – jelly roll fashion – from the long side. Pinch edges together. Cut into 15 slices.
  • Step 7 Coat bottom of a 13 x 9 inch pan and an 8 inch pan with remaining butter and sugar. Place rolls in pans. Let rise for about 45 minutes.
  • Step 8 Preheat oven to 350. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly.
  • Step 9 Meanwhile, mix melted butter, powdered sugar and vanilla
  • Step 10 add hot water – 1 Tbsp at a time until glaze reaches spreading consistency. Spread over rolls.
