I just recently tried this recipe to clear my mind after a long day of studying and my family loved them! However, I thought this recipe had altogether too much sugar content. (I used about half the sugar this recipe actually called for.) Keep in mind that a dessert doesn't have to have loads of sugar in it to taste scrumptious. So, feel free to use as little or as much sugar as you'd like, and remember that it will still taste wonderful without so much sugar and butter added. Enjoy!

2pkg. Yeast
1c. warm water 105-115˚F
2/3 c. sugar and 1t. of sugar
1c. warm milk
2/3 c. melted butter
2t. salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
7c. flour
1c. melted butter
1 ¾ c. sugar
3T. cinnamon
1 ½ c. chopped walnuts

Creamy Glaze:
2/3 c. melted butter
4c. powdered sugar
2t. vanilla
6T. hot water

Place warm water, yeast and 1t. sugar in a bowl. Let sit so it will get foamy. In a mixer, mix milk, 2/3 c. sugar, melted butter, salt and eggs; stir well.
Add yeast mixture. Then add ½ of the flour and mix till smooth. Stir in enough flour to create smooth but slightly sticky dough. Knead.
Put dough onto a lightly floured counter and roll dough into a large rectangle. Pour ½ c. of melted butter onto dough and sprinkle with 1 ½ c. cinnamon sugar then sprinkle with nuts. Roll jelly roll style, cut in to 15 pieces.
In 2 13x9in. pans, pour remaining ½ c. butter, sprinkle with ¼ c. sugar. Place rolls in pan. Let rise 45min. Bake at 350˚F for 25min or until golden brown. Cool slightly, spread with glaze.
