Cinnamon Rolls

I have been looking for a good cinnamon roll recipe and I LOVE this recipe from my friend nicole!

Cinnamon rolls

Yields about 24 Rolls

Mix and set aside
3 TBS yeast
1 cup warm water
2 tsp sugar

Mix by hand
1 1/2 c warm milk
3 eggs
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c oil
2 tsp salt
1 c water
1 c potatoe flakes

Add yeast mixture & mix with hand mixer

Add 3 cups flour

hand mix until satin look

Mix by hand 3-4 (5) c flour, stirring one cup at a time

cover with damp cloth for 1 1/2 hours

roll out on flour (into about 13"x9" rectangle) I had to use about a cup more of flour so the dough wasn't so sticky
I had to divide dough and do it in two sections
Melt 1/2 stick butter for each sec. of dough and spread on dough but leave a 1/2 inch around edges unbuttered

Mix together:
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 TBS Cinnamon
Add mixture on the butter

Roll up from long side and cut 1 in rolls and place in greased pan

rise for 40 min
Bake for 20 min at 350

***CREAM CHEESE ICING*** Double recipe for enough icing for all 24 rolls
4 tablespoons softened butter
3 ounces cream cheese
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
Combine in a mixing bowl until well blended. Frost cinnamon rolls with icing while rolls are still in the baking pan.
