Cinnamon Rolls

1/2 Tablespoon Yeast
1/2 Cup Warm Water
1/2 tsp. Sugar
4 Eggs
1 Tablespoon Salt
1 Cup Instant Potato Flakes(I use the pearls)
1/2 Cup Dry Milk
2 3/4 Cups Warm Water
3/4 Cup Sugar
2/3 Cup Oil
8 Cups Flour

3/4 Cup Butter
1/2 Cup Sugar
Cinnamon to taste

4-5 Cups Powdered Sugar
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
Milk to desired consistency

Mix Yeast, Warm Water and Sugar in small bowl and set aside for 10 min.

Mix Eggs, Salt, Potato Flakes Dry milk, Warm Water, 3/4 C. Sugar and Oil in large mixer. Sometimes I don't have dry milk so I substitute the Dry milk and the Warm Water with 1 Cup Scalded Milk and 1 3/4 cups warm water.

After this is mixed add the Yeast mixture and the Flour. Knead for 10 minutes and let rise 1-2 hours till doubled in size. Roll out half of the dough till about 1/2 inch thick. Spread with filling, roll up and cut with a thread. I start cutting in the middle so I know how many I need from each side to get 16 rolls. Place rolls on a greased jelly roll pan.

Cook at 375 for 12-15 min. I wait till the tops are a little brown. Take out and frost!! They are the best right out of the oven, in my house the center ones get eaten first. You should get 32 Cinnamon Rolls.
