My Momma's Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls--
2 c. lukewarm water
2 T. dry yeast
1 T. sugar
7 c. flour
2 t. salt
6 T. margarine
1/2 c. sugar
3 eggs
Brown Sugar
3 T. powdered milk (optional)

Dissolve yeast and 1 T. sugar in warm water. Add 3 cups flour and beat with mixer until smooth as possible (will be lumpy and stringy). Cream sugar, margarine, and eggs until very smooth. Add egg mixture to first mixture. Then add remaining flour and salt a little at a time. Mix together. Knead a LITTLE. Dough will be lumpy and uneven. Cover. Letrise until double (about 1 hour). Divide in half. Roll out. Spread with melted margarine (approx 1 to 2 T.) Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll up and cut into ½" rolls with thread. Let raise on pan until nice size. Bake at 375 degrees for approx 10 to 15 minutes or until just barely brown.

Buttercream Frosting--
4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 c. margarine
1/2 c. shortening
1 1/2 t. vanilla
dash of salt

Cream margarine, shortening, salt, and vanilla together until as smooth as possible. Add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time. Add 1 to 2 T. of milk to thin frosting or add milk to desired consistency. You can also add cocoa to desired taste for chocolate frosting.
