Number of Servings: 24


    3/4 cup fat free milk
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 cup butter
    2 packages active dry yeast
    1/3 cup warm water (105-115 degrees)
    3 eggs -room temperature
    5-1/2 to 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour (calculated with 6 cups)


Place milk, sugar, salt, and butter in small saucepan. Heat over low heat until butter melts and sugar dissolves. Cool to lukewarm.

Dissolve yeast in warm water in warmed mixer bowl. Add lukewarm milk mixture, eggs, and 5 cups flour. Attach bowl and dough hook to mixer. Turn to Speed 2 and mix about 2 minutes.

Continuing on Speed 2, add remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, and mix about 2 minutes, or until dough clings to hook and cleans sides of bowl. Knead on Speed 2 about 2 minutes longer.

Place dough in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover. Let rise in warm place, free from draft, about 1 hour, or until doubled. Punch dough down and shape as desired for rolls or coffee cakes.
Let rise in warm place 1 additional hour after shaping.
Bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes.

This usually makes 24 cinnamon rolls at my house, but the recipe here, does not include all the cinnamon roll goodness.
