4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (more as needed)
1 package quick-rising active dry yeast
1 1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 eggs

6 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 teaspoons cinnamon

1 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
4 teaspoons milk (more as needed)


In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups of the flour and yeast. Heat the milk and the next 5 ingredients just until mixture is warm, stirring constantly. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture; add eggs. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping sides of bowl constantly. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes.

With a spoon, stir in as much of the flour as you can (dough will be soft). Knead in enough of the flour to make a moderately soft dough (3 to 5 minutes). Shape into a ball. Place dough in a lightly greased bowl; turn once. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size (1 to 1-1/2 hours). Punch down dough. On a lightly-floured surface, divide dough in half; shape each half into a smooth ball. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.

On a lightly-floured surface, roll half the dough into a 12x8-inch rectangle. Spread with 3 Tbsp of the butter.

Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle half over the rectangle. Roll up from short side. Seal edges; repeat with remaining dough. Slice one roll into 8 pieces and the other into 7 pieces. Arrange slices evenly, cut side up, in greased 13x9-inch baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled (about 30 minutes). Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes or until light brown. Invert at once onto wire rack; invert again. Cool slightly. Drizzle rolls with a combination of the powdered sugar, vanilla and milk. Serve warm.
