2 1/2 cups water
2 1/2 cups flour (mix together)
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 ROUNDED soup spoons of dry active yeast (mix together)
2 tsp salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil (mix together)
Continue mixing; add more flour (about 2-3 cups) until dough is stiff. Knead for about 10 minutes until dough is no longer sticky.Cover and let rise double in size (about 45 min to an hour). Punch down dough, cover and let rise again to double its size.
This time dough is ready to work. Take the dough and cut it in half. Roll into a circle with a rolling pin. Take about 1/4 cup butter and generously coat dough with it. Take about 2 Tbsp of sugar and mix it with 1-2 tsp of cinnamon. Coat the buttered side of the dough with sugar and cinnamon. Take one edge of the dough (the long side) and roll it up like you do with a rug. Then cut into 12 pieces and place in a greased 13by9 baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until tops are nice golden brown.
Drizzle with your favorite icing. We mixed cream cheese (4 oz), powder sugar (3-4 cups),and milk (2-3 tbsp) until creamy and because it was St Patty’s we added a couple drops of food coloring to make it green.
