Grand Award Cinnamon Rolls


Makes 9 large rolls
7 to 8 cups all-purpose flour 
2/3 cup sugar 
2 envelopes Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast 
2 teaspoons salt 
1 cup water 
1 cup milk 
2/3 cup butter or margarine 
2 eggs, large 
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
 
Cinnamon Filling (recipe follows) 
Vanilla Glaze (recipe follows}


Directions
In large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt. Heat water, milk, and 2/3 cup butter until very warm (120o to 130oF). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add eggs and 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
 
Roll dough to 15 x 12-inch rectangle. Brush with melted butter; sprinkle with Cinnamon Filling. Beginning at long end, roll up tightly as for jelly roll. Pinch seam to seal. Cut into 9 equal pieces. Place, cut side up, on greased large baking sheet. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Bake at 375oF for 20 to 25 minutes or until done. Remove from sheet to wire rack. Drizzle with Vanilla Glaze while warm.
Cinnamon Filling: Combine 1 cup sugar and 1-1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon in a bowl. Stir until well blended.
 
Vanilla Glaze: Combine 2 cups powdered sugar, sifted; 3 to 4 tablespoons milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Stir until smooth.
