Cinnamon Rolls

FYI - this isn't healthy at all.  Just yummy. And, it's also not my recipe. It's Mary's.

4 1/2 tsp. yeast
1 cup warm milk (105 degrees)
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/3 c. butter/margarine
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs
4-5 c. all-purpose flour (I used closer to 5)

1/3 c. butter/margarine, softened
1 c. brown sugar
2 1/2 Tbsp. cinnamon

Icing (Blend following ingredients with electric mixer):
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. cream cheese
3-4 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Dissolve yeast in warm milk in a large bowl.  Add remaining ingredients and mix well.  Knead into a large ball.  Let rise until doubled.  Roll out on floured surface, 21" x 16" x 1/4" thick

Preheat oven to 375.  

Combine brown sugar, and cinnamon.  Spread butter evenly over rolled dough and sprinkle with sugar mixture.  From long side, roll dough and pinch to seal.  Cut to 1-3/4" slices.  Bake 15-20 minutes, checking on browning.  Ice when cool.
