These cinnamon rolls are made from complete scratch. With these easy step by step instructions it makes it easy to have home made fresh cinnamon rolls on your table for any one that can read and see over the counter. Once ready to start cooking the cinnamon rolls take about 2 hours for cooking and baking time. The best part about making this recipe is that the dough can be mixed and the rolls filled and shaped the night before. When you awake in the morning, just bake. Waiting for the rolls to come out of the oven is the hardest part.

Step 2: Begin Baking

1-In a large mixer bowl combine 21/4 cups of the flour and the yeast

3- stirring constantly. Add to flour mixture. Add eggs. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping sides of bowl constantly. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes.

Step 3: Working With the Dough

2-Knead in enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately soft dough that is smooth and elastic (3-5 minutes total).

3-Shape into a ball. Place in a greased bowl, turning once.

Step 4: Filling the dough

1-For filling, combine brown sugar, the ¼ cup flour, and cinnamon.

2-Cut in remaining margarine or butter till crumbly; set aside.

3-Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface.

4-Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Roll the dough into a 12-inch square.
