7 – 7 1/2 cups Sifted flour
1 tablespoon dry yeast
2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Crisco®
1/4 cup water
2 teaspoons salt
To turn into Cinnamon Rolls (you will also need – sugar-cinnamon mixture)
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons Cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Mix yeast and 1 tablespoon of sugar with hotter than warm water (1/4 cup) mixture, will start to bubble when ready.
Add 2 cups of WARM milk, Crisco®, 1/2 cup sugar, salt and eggs. Work in your flour to make a soft dough.
Cover and let rise until doubled (1 1/2 – 2 hours).
Roll out into a 15 X 7 rectangle, about 1/2 inch thick.
Brush lightly with a little water (if you saturate too much, your loaves will ooze).
Sprinkle with sugar-cinnamon mixture. Roll up (jelly roll style) starting with the smallest end. Seal edges placing sealed sides up.
Let rise until doubled again. (approx 1 hour)
Bake at 375 degrees F for approx 35-40 minutes.
Brush with butter, or you may wish to glaze the top of your loaves with the topping of your choice.
