Mamaw's Cinnamon Rolls

I haven't posted a new recipe for a while so here you go.

Mamaw's Cinnamon Rolls

2 pkgs yeast            1 T sugar
1/4 cup very warm water 
mix well and set aside till foamy.  Cream 2/3 cup softened butter with 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tsp salt.
 Add 3 eggs and beat well.  Add 1 cup hot water and yeast mixture.  
Add 4 cups flour.

Cover and let rise.  Punch down and let rise again. 

Pour onto floured board and roll out to about 1/2 inch.

Spread with butter then sprinkle with cinnamon, sugar and chopped nuts.  The more cinnamon the better for me. 

Roll up and slice 1" to 1 1/2" thick.  In bottom of pan put 1/2 cup butter in pats (the more butter the gooier  the topping ) and brown sugar to cover about 1/2 inch thick.  Sprinkle with chopped nuts, as many as you want.  Place cinnamon rolls on top and let rise. 

Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes or till golden brown.  let cool for 10 minutes and then turn out on a tray. 

FarmDad will grab one right out of the oven. 

Once in a while I will chop up a can of apple pie filling and smear that on before I roll them up.
