Mom's cinnamon rolls

My mom's cinnamon rolls are legendary! I opt for vanilla and a sprinkle of cinnamon in my frosting instead of maple.


Scald 2 cups milk

Add: 1/4 c. oil

1/4 c sugar

After this has cooled and add:

2 T yeast

1/2 c lukewarm water

Now add: 2 eggs

6 cups flour

Mix all these ingredients together for 4 min. Add more flour if necessary. Knead until not too sticky not too dry. . Set aside, and let rise until double. Roll out onto floured board, or cloth. Brush with butter, and sprinkle with

1/2 c br. sugar 1/2 c white sugar

lots of cinnamon nuts, or raisins optional

Roll up, cut into 3/4-1 inch rolls. Place on sprayed pan. Let rise for 30 min, or until doubled. Bake at 325 for 15 min, or until done.


1 box powdered sugar 2 T butter melted

1 t vanilla flavoring 1 t maple flavoring

a little warm milk. just enough to make the topping melt together, like smooth paste.
