Cinnamon Rolls

I make these for General Conference weekend. I got the recipe from my Betty Houston cookbook that is famous in my kitchen for her great recipes. Cheese requested that I teach her how to make them. Maybe in October.

2 tsp salt
1/2 c. + 2 tbsp sugar
3 c. warm water
1 c. powdered milk
1 1/2 tbsp yeast
1/2 c. + 2 tbls. oil
2 eggs
7 c. flour (= or - just enough to make a soft dough)

-Soften yeast in small bowl with 1/2 c. warm water, 2 tbsp. sugar and let set for about 10 minutes.
-Mix with a mixer the remaining warm water, sugar, salt powdered milk, and oil. Beat eggs and add to the mixer mixture. When it is all mixed add yeast mixture and finally the flour. Let rise until double in bulk. Divide into two portions. Roll out each portion in rectangle and spread with melted butter. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar mixture on butter and roll the rectangle up pinching the end to the roll. Slice and place on oiled baking sheet. Let rise until doubled. Bake 370 until lightly browned.
