Cinnamon Rolls

1 envelope yeast
2 tablespoons warm water
Pinch of sugar
1 beaten egg
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
6-8 cups flour
2 cups buttermilk
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
nuts or raisins


Mix yeast, water and pinch of sugar in a small bowl, set aside for a few minutes. In a large bowl, combine buttermilk, egg, sugar, salt and yeast mixture. Add enough flour to make a soft dough. Cover with a damp towel, and let rise in a warm, draft-free place for about an hour.

Roll dough out on a floured surface until it is rectangular in shape and about 1/4" thick. Spread entire surface with butter, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon, and roll it up jelly roll fashion from the long side. Cut 1" thick sections using new dental floss. Place the rolls in a 12" Dutch oven, cover with lid, and let rise for about 30 minutes.

Bake for 50 minutes with 14 charcoal briquettes on the top and 6 on the bottom. Remove rolls and spread frosting.

Frosting:

4 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon almond flavoring
milk

Mix all ingredients, adding only enough milk to give it the consistency of regular cake frosting. Spread on cinnamon rolls.
