Danae's Delicious Cinnamon Rolls

This recipe is from a precious lady in our Bible study this semester...all I can say is that the pan was wiped clean, not even a lick was left ....and everyone was begging for the recipe!!
so here is it from directly Danae!  Enjoy!

Hey Ladies!

I really enjoyed doing the bible study with you all.  Here's the recipe, as promised! I like to play around with the frosting, but this will give you an idea.  Let me know if you have any questions!
3 C warm water
2 pkg. yeast
1 C sugar
10 C flour
1/2 C oil (I use vegetable)
2 beaten eggs
1 T salt
Mix water & yeast well in extra large mixing bowl.  Add sugar, salt, oil, and eggs.  Mix in & knead flour to make a soft dough (sticks to your hands!)  Cover & let rise to double.  Form into hot rolls or cinnamon rolls.  Let rise again.*  (Can rise in refrig. overnight if you mix the ingredients later in the evening)
For Cinnamon Rolls: Flour counter top- roll out dough in large oval shape.  Smear marg. generously :) over dough.  Sprinkle brown sugar over & then cinnamon over dough. Roll into a long snake, flouring the surface if it sticks... the tighter the roll the better!  Cut 1" circle.  Place in "Pamed" pan  Let rise.*  You can also add chopped nuts to the bottom of the pan before placing dough in there. 
While dough is rising, you can make three different kinds of frosting. The first is my favorite and what I used today.. Beware its not healthy :)
#1 Frosting- Creamy
1/2 box of powered sugar
1 stick margarine
1 tsp vanilla
1 8 oz. cream cheese
This makes a bunch! I always refrig or freeze left overs and use on the next batch.  You can also add 1 cup of chopped pecans if you like!
#2 Frosting- Sorry don't have exact measurements, just do to taste
Powdered Sugar (1/2 box)
Can of Frosting 
#3 Frosting- Extra sugary!
1 C brown sugar
1 t. cinnamon
3/4 C butter
2 T corn syrup
Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown at 350, be watchful they can burn quickly, but the middle is hard to cook through so I usually place smaller rolls in the center, otherwise the big ones won't back all the way through in the middle.
Hope you enjoy as much as we do!!!! :)
