4 1/2 cups flour

Mix all ingredients until you have a nice dough.  Then follow the next steps below:

Roll out the dough. Then spread dough with:
1 cup melted butter
Then mix:
1/2–3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cinnamon

Sprinkle all over dough on top of butter. Use more cinnamon/sugar if needed.


Roll into a log and cut into slices.    Place on a greased pan.  In order to fill the gaps, place extra dough (from the ends of the log) in between the rolls. cover and let rise for 1 hour until doubled.  Bake at 350 degrees until golden on top.  Frost with your favorite frosting.
