1/4 cup warm milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 Tbl Cinnamon
4 Tbl butter, softened
1 package dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
2 1/2 cups white flour
Mix the milk, sugar, salt, cinnamon, butter, and eggs in a large bowl and let cool to
lukewarm. Stir the yeast into the warm water and let it stand for 5 minutes to
dissolve. Add the dissolved yeast to the first first mixture, beat until well mixed,
and add 1 1/2 cups of the flour, beating well. Cover and let rise in a warm place
for about 1 hour. Add the remaining cup of flour and blend in well, adding more
flour if necessary to make the dough firm enough to handle. Knead until smooth and
elastic. Put the dough in a buttered bowl, cover, and let rise until almost double
in size. Punch down, shape into rolls (see below) and let rise for about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake rolls for 15-18 minutes (it will be difficult to
wait as you smell them baking). Drizzle a paste of confectioner's sugar and water
over top if desired.
To shape the dough into a long,
thin cylinder and with a floured knife, cut off pieces about 1/3 inch thick. Place
pieces lightly next to each other in a 2" high baking pan.
