This recipe is from my Grandma Emma Redenius. Grandma always had sweet rolls made when we came to visit. She probably made a batch of these a week. I use some of the dough for sweet rolls and some for dinner rolls.

    Mix milk, sugar, butter and salt together and let cool.

    In a separate small bowl, pour the warm/hot water over the yeast. Let stand for a few minutes then mix in with the above mixture. Beat the eggs and blend in with the batter. Add 4 cups of flour and mix with a spoon. Mix in 3 more cups of flour. Knead well.

    Put melted butter on sides of bowl and top and sides of dough. Let rise 2 hours.

    Put 1/2 of the dough on a floured surface and smooth out to 1/2 or 1/4 inch thick. Melt butter and brush on top of dough. Sprinkle liberally with sugar and cinnamon. Roll up and cut into 1 inch sections and place in pans. I usually use half the dough for sweet rolls and the other half I shape into dinner rolls and put into pans. Let rise again 1 hour. Then bake at 375º for 10-15 minutes. Frost when cool.
