Cinnamon Rolls

2 tbsp. yeast
2 ½ c. warm water
½ c. sugar
½ c. oil
2 eggs
1 tbsp. salt
6-7 c. flour

Dissolve yeast in water and set aside. Beat sugar and oil together, then add eggs and beat well. Add yeast, water, salt, and 3 c. flour and beat until smooth. Put in dough hooks and add rest of flour. Mix and add flour until dough pulls away cleanly from sides of bowl. Let rise 1 1/2 to 2 hours, covered. Spray clean counter top with Pam type cooking spray. Roll dough out onto counter, forming one large square piece about 1/2 inch thick. Spread top of dough with softened butter.
Combine the following into a bowl:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1-1.5 T cinnamon
Spread the cinnamon mixture on top of dough. Roll the dough up the long way (this is easiest if your dough is square, you can cut off the excess dough on the sides if needed to make it square). Once rolled up, use dental floss and cut the dough into about 2" thick pieces. Lay the pieces onto a greased cookie sheet (about 12-14 on a sheet).

Let rise another 1 to 1.5 hours. Bake at 375 for 15 min. Let cool until just warm before frosting!

4 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup warm milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
Beat together. You may need to adjust amounts to get the consistency you like. It should be a little thick, not runny, as it will melt a little on the slightly warm rolls!
