Homemade Cinnamon Rolls
There is nothing better than the smells of warm, gooey cinnamon buns. These don’t last very long at my house. Even the kids that aren’t living at home seem to know when mom is making them and are sure to come by to steal some.
1 pkg active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
3/4 cup lukewarm milk (scalded then cooled)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter or margarine softened

4 tbsp margarine, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Mix in next 5 ingredients and 2 cups flour. Stir. Mix in enough of the remaining flour until it forms a dough. Knead about 5 minutes on a floured surface. Place in greased bowl; turn grease side up. Cover: let rise in warm place until double about 1 1 /2 to 2 hours. Punch down dough and divide into 4 sections.
Roll out dough into rectangles; spread with margarine. Sprinkle filling over rectangle. Roll up; pinch edges to seal well. Cut roll into 1″ slices. Place in greased baking dish, slightly apart. Let rise until double. Bake 25 to 30 minutes at 325 F. Frost with icing while rolls are still warm.
