Becky Sue's Cinnamon Rolls

This is a wonderful, no fuss cinnamon roll!  They turn out fluffy and gooey and perfect for chasing any winter blahs. If you know you will be making these ahead of time, pull the eggs out of the fridge to come to room temperature and it will speed up the raising process.

Becky Sue's Cinnamon Rolls
2 Tbsp yeast
1/2 c. sugar
2 tsp. salt
5 c. flour (plus more for later)

Combine these ingredients in the bowl of a mixer with dough hook, or in a large bowl. Stir them together and add:
1/2 c. oil
3 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 c. hot water

Start the mixer.  Let it bring the ingredients together in a dough and then begin to add additional flour with the mixer running, a little at a time until dough forms a ball and cleans the sides of the bowl. (It will probably take 1-2 more cups of flour.) Let it knead for about 4 min.  If mixing by hand, add additional flour until dough is very stiff to stir and begin working it with your hands, feeling for it to loose its stickiness and start to blister as you knead.

Scrape dough from bowl onto a floured surface.  Roll into a rectangle 1/2 inch thick.  Spread generously with butter or margarine.  Sprinkle generously with sugar and cinnamon. Crumble brown sugar on top of cinnamon and sugar.  Raisins are optional.  Roll into a jelly roll; cut into desired widths.  Place in greased pan.  Let raise in a warm place until size doubles.  Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.  Frost with cream cheese frosting while still warm.

Ready to go in the oven.
Note:  You can make marvelous Orange Rolls with this dough as well.  Click here for instructions.
