Cinnamon Rolls

This is my Grandma's recipe. I've made it many times and never have anything go wrong - they always turn out amazing!! Grandma is a little confused as to why I can make her cinnamon rolls but couldn't bake a loaf of bread if my life depended on it!

Cinnamon Rolls

2 tbsp. yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1 tbsp. sugar

1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. milk, scalded and cooled to lukewarm
Flour - enough to make a thin sponge

Let rise 1/2 hour.

Then add:
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2. oil
2 eggs
Flour - to make medium stiff dough.

Let rise till double in bulk. Roll our approximately 1/4 inch thick. Then spread with mixture of:/1/2 cup margarine (softened) and 1 cup brown sugar. Sprinkle with cinnamon and raisins (optional) to taste. Let rise about double. Bake at 350F approximately 25 mins.
