Special Cinnamon Rolls

Ingredients:
  • 2 pkgs. yeast
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 T. sugar
  • Pinch of ginger
  • 2 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted shortening (cooled)
    Ad
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 3 cup flour
  • 2 cup raisins
  • 5 cup flour (more or less)

Directions:

In a large bowl, place yeast, 1/2 cup lukewarm water, sugar and ginger. When yeast is dissolved, stir in 2 cups warm water, 1/2 cup sugar, salt, eggs and 3 cups flour. Mix well. Add raisins which have been plumped over hot water. Add shortening and more flour. Knead until smooth. Place in a well greased bowl. Cover with a cloth and let rise until double. Roll into a rectangle (or make 2 rectangles for easier handling). Spread surface with butter, 1 cup brown sugar and 4 teaspoons cinnamon. Roll up and cut. Place cut-side down in buttered pan. Let rise until almost doubled.

Topping:

  • 1 cup cream (whipped)
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

Combine all ingredients and spread on raised rolls. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. In cutting the dough, use heavy thread. It cuts the dough much smoother and there's no mashing down of the dough.
