6 C. Hot Water-divided
2 C. Cold Milk
2 1/2 TBSP. Salt
1 C. Oil
1 1/4 C. Sugar
3 TBSP. Yeast – heaping (I use Red Star brand.)
12 C. Bread Flour

Take 1 C.warm water, plus the yeast… set aside to bloom for 5 minutes.
Then in your mixing bowl add the remaining water, milk, salt, oil and sugar.
When the yeast has bloomed for 5 minutes add it to the mixing bowl.
Mix together on low for 2 minutes. Add in 6 C. of the flour and mix for 5 minutes.
Then add in remaining flour and again mix for 5 minutes.
*You want the dough sticky,yet will pull away from the sides of the bowl.
Add more flour 1/2 C. at a time if needed.
Transfer dough to a floured surface and knead into a smooth ball.
Place in a greased bowl, rubbing some oil on the top of dough.
Cover with a light towel, place in a warm area to raise double in size. Punch down once then let raise again before rolling out and spreading with the creamy cinnamon filling.

My Creamy Cinnamon Filling
2 (8oz.) Cream Cheese-softened
2 C. Brown Sugar
1 C. Sugar
1 Stick Margarine- softened
2 TBSP. Cinnamon

Beat all ingredients together until smooth.
Spread over rolled out dough.
Roll up, pinching seams together.
Cut into desired size then place on lightly sprayed baking sheet. Cover once more with a light towel. Let rise a final time.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
*I like to glaze my rolls while they are hot right out of the oven.

Bake a great start to your day,

Lark
