Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls
1 (1/4 ounce) package dry yeast (I buy it in bulk so it was about 1tsp)
1 cup warm milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup margarine
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
4 cups flour

1 cup packed brown sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/3 cup margarine, softened

8 tablespoons margarine
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt

1.For the rolls, dissolve the yeast in the warm milk in a large bowl.
2 Add sugar, margarine salt, eggs, and flour, mix well.
3 Knead the dough into a large ball, using your hands dusted lightly with flour.
4 Put in a bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place about 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
5 Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface, until it is approx 21 inches long by 16 inches wide.
6 It should be approx 1/4 thick.
7 Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

8 To make filling, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
9 Spread the softened margarine over the surface of the dough, then sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon evenly over the surface.

10 Working carefully, from the long edge, roll the dough down to the bottom edge.
11 Cut the dough into 1 3/4 inch slices, (use a piece of string or non mint dental floss to cut. Place a string under the dough and then make an X with the string and pull till it cuts through. Then place in a lightly greased baking pan.

12 Bake for 10 minutes or until light golden brown.

13 While the rolls are baking combine the icing ingredients.
14 Beat well with an electric mixer until fluffy.
15 When the rolls are done, spread generously with icing.
