 Ingredients List

  • 3/4 c Milk
  • 1/3 c Sugar
  • 1 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/4 c Shortening
  • 2 pk Or cakes yeast
  • 1/2 c Warm or lukewarm water
  • 2 Eggs well beaten
  • 4 c Sifted all purpose flour
  • 3/4 c Sugar
  • 1 1/2 ts Cinnamon
  • 1/2 c Melted butter
  • 1/2 c Brown sugar
  • 1/2 c Chopped nuts


Scald milk. Add sugar, salt and shortening and cool to lukewarm. Dissolve
yeast in water, with 1 tsp. sugar. Stir in lukewarm milk mixture. Add eggs
and 2 cups flour and beat until smooth. Stir in remaining flour. Turn dough
out on lightly floured board and knead until smooth and elastic. Place
dough in greased bowl and brush top with soft shortening. Cover, let rise
in warm place (85 F.) until double in bulk, about 1 hour.

Divide dough in half. Roll out each half into an oblong about 14 x 9
inches. Brush lightly with butter. Combine 3/4 cup sugar and cinnamon.
Sprinkle evenly over the two oblongs. Roll up as for jelly roll to make a
roll 9-inches long. Cut each roll into 9 equal pieces. Pour 1/2 cup melted
butter into two 9-inch layer cake pans or three 8-inch layer pans. Combine
brown sugar and nuts and sprinkle evenly over melted butter in pans. Place
rolls, cut side up in pans. Cover. Let rise in warm place until double in
bulk, about one hour. Bake in moderate oven (350 F) for about 30 minutes.
Invert pan and allow pan to stay over rolls for a minutes so syrup runs
down sides of rolls. Remove pan. Makes 18 rolls.
