Directions

Buns - Mix together 1 ½ cups sugar and cinnamon—set aside. - In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 tsp. sugar in warm water; set aside. - In a large bowl, mix together milk, 2/3 cup sugar, 2/3 cup melted butter, salt and eggs; add yeast mixture and 4 cups of flour to mixture; beat until smooth; still in enough flour to form a slightly stiff dough. - Turn dough out onto a well floured surface and knead for 8 minutes ( I need in mixer—about 5 minutes) - Place dough in a large, greased bowl, cover, and allow to rise until doubled—about 1-1 ½ hours. - Punch down dough and let rest 5 minutes. - Roll dough out onto floured surface into a 15X20 rectangle (might be easier to divide dough in half and make two rolls to cut). - Brush dough with ½ cup melted butter; sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar , sprinkle with nuts if you want to. - Tightly roll dough and pinch ends together to seal; cut the roll into 12-15 slices using dental floss or thread. - Coat bottom of pans with melted butter; sprinkle sugar evenly in bottom of pan. - Place cinnamon rolls close together in pan; cover pan and allow to rise for 45 minutes. - Bake rolls at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Cream Cheese Icing blend cream cheese and butter together until fluffy. Add in vanilla; blend. Add in powdered sugar and blend until smooth. Freezing: Once in prepared pan, cover with fool and freeze ( do not let them rise for the 45 minutes). Take out of freezer night before you want to cook. In morning cook as directed above.
