I found this fantastic recipe for cinnamon rolls and they are wonderful, courtesy of lazyhomesteader.com  These rolls take some time to make, but come out melt in your mouth delish!

Rolls:

1 pkg. (¼ oz) yeast

1 c. warm (not hot) milk

½ c. granulated sugar

1/3 c. melted butter

1 tsp. salt

2 eggs

4 c. all-purpose flour

Filling:

1 c. packed brown sugar

2½ T. cinnamon

1/3 c. butter, softened

Icing:

8 T. butter, softened

¼ c. (2 oz.) cream cheese

½ tsp. vanilla extract

1/8 tsp. salt

1½ c. confectioners sugar

To make Rolls:

Oven to 400° F

Place yeast and milk in a large bowl about 5 minutes.

Whisk in sugar, butter, salt, and eggs. Add flour; mix well.

Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Knead into a large ball. Cover; let rise 1 hour.

Roll dough into a 21″ x 16″ wide rectangle, about ¼ inch thick.

Spread the dough with softened butter.

Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon over entire buttered rectangle.

Roll carefully from long-side. Pinch the ends.

Using a sharp knife, cut into 1¾ inch wide rolls, making twelve.

Put rolls into greased 9” x 13” baking pan.

Let the rolls rise in the pan for 30 minutes. While dough is rising, prepare the icing (see below).

Bake the rolls about 20 minutes until the rolls are slightly browned and not doughy. Do not over bake.

Remove rolls from oven and let cool about 15 minutes. Cover with icing and serve warm.

To make Icing:

Cream ingredients together with an electric mixer, beating until fluffy.

Spread on hot rolls.
