Step 1

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Set aside.

Step 2

Heat milk and margarine on the stove or in the microwave to 115 degrees. Pour into a bowl, with 1/4 c sugar, eggs, salt, and flavorings. Add yeast mixture. Sift in flour and stir well.

Step 3

Let dough rise until doubled. Divide in half. Roll each half into a 12x18 rectangle. Sprinkle with a mixture of 1 c sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon, using half the mixture for each half of the dough. Roll dough up tightly into a tube. Cut into 1 inch slices. Place slices onto greased cookie sheet and flatten with the palm of your hand.

Step 4

Let rise 5-10 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees 10-12 minutes. Frost with powdered sugar frosting.


Dough can be refrigerated before rising. Take out and let it rise the next day.
