Cinnamon Rolls

Does anything scream Christmas more than cinnamon rolls?
Probably, but these are up at the top of my list.
Perfect for snacking this holiday season!
Cinnamon Rolls
Recipe from Lyn Denna
3/4 c. milk
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. butter
2 Tbsp. yeast
1/3 c. warm water
3 eggs
5 - 6 1/2 c. flour

Place milk, sugar, salt and butter in a saucepan.
Heat until melted (don't let it boil).

Meanwhile, place yeast and warm water in a mixing bowl and sit to dissolve.

Add eggs and 5 c. flour to water and yeast.
Gradually add mixture in saucepan while mixing.
Mix until soft dough forms (about 5 minutes).
You may need to add up to 1 1/2 c. extra flour - dough should come away from the sides of the bowl and form a ball in the center.

While mixing, combine the following:
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter
1/4 c. flour
1 1/2 Tbsp. cinnamon
Nuts (optional) - I leave them out

Cut dough in half, and roll each piece out to a large rectangle. 
Sprinkle sugar mixture over entire surface of dough.
Roll up and cut into 1" rings.
Let rise on a sprayed cookie sheet for 30 minutes.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

Top with Glaze:
2 c. powdered sugar
1/4 c. softened butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. water
