Cinnamon Rolls

1 cup warm milk
2 eggs
1/3 cup margarine, melted
4 1/2 cups flour - give or take
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast

Dump the above in your breadmaker, set to dough. If you don't have a breadmaker, mix your milk and sugar, then proof your yeast. Add your salt, butter and eggs, then work your flour in. Knead, and let rise aprox 1 hour. After it's risen, knead down, roll into a rectangle. I don't measure mine, but the "experts" say 16ish by 21ish. Once that's done, mix the following ingredients:

1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, softened

And spread it on your dough. Roll the dough into a cylinder (long way), and using a sharp knife, cut into 12ish rolls. Place in greased pie pan, cover and let rise another 30-45 minutes. Bake in 400 degree oven for around 15 minutes, or when they start to brown.

Then, make this:
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt

And slather on. Eat!
