2 packages yeast
1 cup milk
1/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon white sugar
1/2 cup butter
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups flour -- (4 to 5)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoons brown sugar

Preparation / Directions:

Soften both packages of yeast in 1/2 cup lukewarm water and 1 teaspoon white sugar. Scald milk with white sugar and butter. Cool and mix together in a large bowl with salt. Add eggs to that mixture. Spoon 4 or 5 cups of flour into that bowl and stir until it is a soft dough. Cover with a damp towel and let rise until doubled. Scrape dough out onto a heavily floured board. Handle as little as possible. Toss in flour until you can roll it out very thin. Spread with butter or oil and sprinkle heavy with brown sugar and cinnamon to your taste. Roll up jelly roll style. Cut into 1 inch slices. Place cut side down onto a heavily oiled 13 x 9 pan. Cover and let rise until doubled again. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes until brown. Turn out at once or the rolls will stick to the pan. Spread with any light glaze. Serve hot.
