Mom's Cinnamon Rolls

I think this is the kids' favorite thing that I make.
I would make a lot at one time, in pie pans and everyone wanted the middle! We had these every Christmas morning.

In a large bowl combine:

2/3 C powdered milk
1 C sugar
2 squares margarine
2 C boiling water

Soften 3 T yeast in 1 C warm water and let sit a couple of minutes

Add yeast to 6 beaten eggs, than add to milk mixture

Add 1 T salt

Sift enough flour into milk mixture to make a soft dough. Beat thoroughly. Turn out onto floured board and knead barely enough so that it can be handled. (very soft)

Place in a greased (oil) bowl. Grease the top of the dough.
Cover and let rise tll double (about 30 min)

divide the dough into 2 parts. Let one part sit while you roll the other

Roll onto counter into a rectangle shape ; about 1/2 in thick (no more)
brush on butter, then sprinkle on brown or white sugar, then cinnamon.
Roll up and cut into 1 inch rolls

I always used oiled round pie tins because when I've used a cookie sheet or cake pan, the inside ones are undercooked. Each tin fits about 7 rolls. The rolls should barely touch each other so that ther is enough room to rise. Put in a warm place to rise.

350 20-25 min ....Drizzle with thin frosting after they come out.

Frosting: cream some butter, add a couple drops of vanilla, and a good amount of pd sugar. Add milk to desired consistency.
