Posted for Tonya...she is unable to post at the moment.

2 Cups warm water
2 T yeast
2 T sugar
1/4 cup shortening
2 eggs
2 t salt
5 1/2 cups flour

Sprinkle yeast and sugar in bowl of warm water.
Let sit 5 minutes, mix remaining ingredients.
Let dough rise 30 minutes in bowl.
Roll out the dough in a medium size rectangle.
After you've rolled the dough out,

melt 1/2 cup margarine,
3 T cinnamon,
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar.

Spread over the rectangle dough. Roll the rectangle into a large roll.
Use heavy string (crochet thread works well) to cut (about 1'' slices)...
slide the string under the roll of dough, bring the two ends up and cross over, pull and it slices through the dough.
This works great because it doesn't mash the dough when you cut.

Place in a greased jelly roll pan.
Let rise 25-30 minutes in the pan, then bake at 400 degrees for 13 minutes.
Cool and Ice.

4 cups powdered sugar
1/4 t vanilla
4 T milk
2 shakes of salt
1/2 cup margarine, melted

Mix together in mixer.
Put in a thick freezer bag and cut a ting hole in the corner.
Squeeze icing out in the pattern as desired.
