Freshly Baked Cinnamon Rolls

Made fresh this morning...can you smell 'em?We like LOTS of frosting - you don't have to put this much on...YUM!
Warning: they are OOEY-GOOEY and oh so CHEWY!!!
1/2 c warm water
1 T yeast
1 T sugar
Let the yeast rise in the water and sugar for about 10 minutes.
1 t salt
1 egg
1/2 c milk
1/3 c sugar
1/4 c oil
3 c flour (or so)
Mix in mixer until dough is not too sticky to handle. Knead for about 4 minutes and let rise for a couple of hours. (I usually place in a bowl, cover with saran wrap and an elastic and let it rise in my fridge overnight. If you do this you need to take it out a couple hours before you roll them out) Roll out the dough and spread with a genereous amount of butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll up and slice. Place on a greased cookie sheet and let it rise for another 30 min - to an hour. Bake at 375 for 25-30 min. Frost with frosting.
3 c powdered sugar
1 stick butter
1 T vanilla
5 T heavy cream
I know they seem time consuming...but really, they are worth it! I like to do these on a Saturday or non-school day.
