Christmas Baking- Day 1

I have made lots of goodies over the past few weeks and wanted to share some with you before Christmas. I would love for you to send me your favorite treat and candy recipes that you make for Christmas. ENJOY!

Mom's Cinnamon Rolls

4 1/2 tsp. yeast dissolved in
2 1/2 cups lukewarm water
1 cube melted butter
2/3 sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup canned evaporated milk
1 beaten egg
approximately 7 cups flour
1 cube butter softened to room temperature
cinnamon sugar

Mix butter, sugar, salt, milk and egg together in bosch or mixer. Add yeast mixture and stir. Slowly add flour till dough is soft. The dough should have enough flour that it starts to pull away from the sides of the mixer, but not completely (like bread dough).
Put dough in large bowl, brush the top with butter and let it rise till double. Divide dough into two pieces, and roll each one out on a floured surface into a large rectangle. Spread softened butter over the top, and sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar.
Roll the dough into a long loaf. Slice into 1/2- 1 inch pieces. Arrange on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for approximately 13-15 minutes until lightly golden.
While still hot, spread icing over the rolls.

Mix together 2 cups powdered sugar, 2 TBS butter, and slowly add half and half to desired consistency.
