Jumbo Cinnamon Rolls
This recipe was shared by Carol Courter of our hometown, Delaware, Ohio...we think they'd be perfect for a holiday brunch with friends or even Christmas morning!

2 eggs, beaten
1/3 c. margarine, melted and cooled

1/3 c. butter, softened
2-1/2 T. cinnamon
16-oz. container cream cheese frosting
Combine milk, yeast and sugar in a large bowl; let stand for 10 minutes. Stir in eggs and margarine with a wooden spoon. Mix salt into flour; add flour to wet mixture one cup at a time until dough forms. Knead until smooth; place dough in a large bowl sprayed with non-stick vegetable spray.Cover; let rest until double in size.
