12 rolls

  • Dough:
  • 4 eggs
  • 6 ounces granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon fine salt
  • 2 cups milk, lukewarm
  • 4 ounces margarine
  • 8 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2 tablespoons yeast

  • 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
  • Icing:
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup milk

  • For the dough: In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, granulated sugar, and salt for the dough mixture. Combine the warm milk and margarine and add to the egg mixture. Slowly add 4 cups flour and beat well. Add the yeast and mix thoroughly. Add the remaining 4 cups flour and mix on medium speed for 7 minutes. Place the dough in an oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let the dough rise to double its size, about 1 hour.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Roll the dough into a 1 1/2-by-2-foot rectangle.

  • For the filling: Spread 4 ounces of margarine over the dough and sprinkle entire surface with brown sugar, cinnamon, and chopped pecans. Roll the dough into a cylinder shape starting with the bottom edge, and then cut into 12 slices. Place the slices onto an oiled pan and bake for 15 minutes. Cool and cover with icing.

  • For the icing: Stir the powdered sugar, milk, margarine and almond extract until thoroughly combined.
