Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls-

2 1/2 cups warm water
3 T yeast
1/2 cup sugar
Let that get bubbly
add 1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
1/2 T salt
6 cups flour
mix for 7 min
let rise double

Roll into a rectangle shape (I usually split the dough in 3 pieces first so it's easier to work with)

spread on generous amount of softened butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll into a long roll and cut it up in circles (I use dental floss or thread to cut, it comes out better than a knife).

Bake at

2 cups powdered sugar
3 T milk
1 t vanilla
