Mom's yummy (and EASY!) cinnamon rolls!

Sorry there is no picture, but I was just craving these so decided to post them. My mom has been making cinnamon rolls during the holiday's for as long as I can remember. I get mad if she tries another recipe because there is no need...these are AMAZING! I haven't tried it, but it would probably also be good with a cream cheese frosting as opposed to a simple glaze (which my mom always uses). ENJOY!

Cinnamon Rolls (Julie Walker)

2 c scalded milk
2 pkgs yeast
3/4 c butter, melted
1/2 t salt
1 c sugar
2 eggs, beaten
5 c flour
1/2 c brown sugar
2 T cinnamon

Pour scalded milk over sugar, let cool. Add yeast & 1 c flour. Add eggs, 1/2 c butter, salt, and remaining flour. Stir until mixed. Let rise. Roll out into rectangle. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon. Spread w/ remaining melted butter and top with sugar mixture. Roll up long ways, cut into 1/2 - 1 inch pieces (easy with dental floss!) and place on greased baking sheets. Let rise again. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

These sound delicious! Now all I need to do is try and work out the measurements & temperature! We use different ones here in Australia. I could ask my husband though, he is from the US originally. Love your blog xo
