Cinnamon Rolls

3 T. yeast
1 c. warm water (110-115 degrees)
¾ c. sugar
2 tsp. salt
1/3 c. butter (melted – cooled)
1 egg, beaten
1½ c. warm milk
7 – 7½ c. bread flour

1 stick butter, melted
1 c. brown sugar
1 T. cinnamon

Frosting:
1 lb. box powdered sugar
2 T. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
milk (or coffee)

Dissolve yeast in water. Add sugar, salt, shortening, egg, milk and 3 cups of flour. Stir until smooth. Mix rest of flour to make a soft dough. Turn out on a lightly floured board. Knead 8-10 minutes. Put in a greased bowl; cover and let rise about 1 hour. Punch down; roll out and spread butter on dough. Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over dough.  Roll up jelly roll style, slice about an inch thick, put in pans and let rise 30 minutes. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until light brown. Combine powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and enough milk or coffee to make a smooth frosting.
