(Effie's) Ruth's Rolls

I do not know who Ruth was. Perhaps she was a neighbor or a relative of Aunt Effie's, but regardless, these sound good! If you know how to make bread then this recipe will be easy to follow. If you aren't very skilled in bread-making then refer to a recipe for yeast rolls and follow the directions using these ingredients.
I looove cinnamon rolls, which is what these are. Make a simple glaze of powdered sugar and milk to drizzle over these when done.

(Effie's) Ruth's Rolls
(As written in one of Aunt Effie's cook books)

Dissolve 1/2 cake yeast, 1 tsp. sugar in half cup water. 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup water, 1 heaping Tbls. butter, heat to lukewarm, 1 quart flour, sifted, 3 big Tbls. sugar, 1 scant Tbls salt, 1 egg; add milk and dissolved yeast to flour and knead. Put in buttered pan until morning. Roll out 3/4" and spread with butter and cinnamon and sugar. Let raise 2 hours and bake.
*Do not heat liquids above 115 degrees or it will kill the yeast! 105-115 is best.
*1 quart flour is roughly 4 cups; you may need a bit more for kneading
