Preparation / Directions:

Soften dry yeast in 1/2 cup warm water. Combine milk, salad oil, sugar and salt. Cool to lukewarm. Sift 1 cup flour with cinnamon. Stir into milk mixture. Add eggs and mix well.

Cover and let rise in a warm place until it doubles again - about 1 hour. Brush top with slightly beaten egg white. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Cool slightly. Frost with quick icing: 3/4 cup powdered sugar and a small amount of water or milk. Mix together until smooth and frost buns with a cross.
