Step 1

Heat milk to a simmer. Stir in 1/2 c sugar, salt, and butter; cool to luke warm. Sprinkle yeast over warm water and add 1 tsp sugar in large bowl and let stand until bubbly. Stir into milk mixture: eggs and half of the flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to make soft dough.

Turn onto floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic about 8 min. Place in lightly greased bowl. Turn once to grease surface. Cover and let rise in warm place about 1 hour or until dough is double. Punch down, turn onto floured surface and let rise 10 min.

Mix sugar and cinnamon. Brush 9x13 pan with melted butter. Roll dough on floured surface to a thin rectangle. Brush dough with melted butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon mixture. Roll up jellyroll fashion, starting at narrow end. Cut rolls at 1 1/2 intervals using the following method: place a single piece of thread under the rolled dough and pull the thread up around the side. Crisscross thread at top
then pull quickly. This method eliminates knife pressure which flattens pinwheel. Put rolls cut side down in pan so spiral shows. Drizzle with any remaining butter. Cover loosely with plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 375. Let rolls stand at room temp. for 30 min. Bake rolls until puffed and golden about 25-30 min. Cool in pan. Unmold and drizzle with powder sugar glaze. Serve warm.

For the Powder Sugar glaze, sift ingredients in bowl. Stir in vanilla. Add half and half until glaze is med.-thick.
