Dancer's Best Ever Cinnamon Rolls

Dancer made a pan of these this afternoon and oh did they taste yummy.  I wish you all could have one.  The best I can do is post the recipe so you can make your own.

4 1/2 to 5 cups flour
1 package yeast or 2 1/4 tsp.
1 cup milk
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 eggs
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup nuts

Mix together 2 1/4 cups flour and the yeast.  In sauce pan heat milk, 1/3 cup butter, granulated sugar and salt.  Heat to 120 to 130 degrees.  The butter may not be all melted at this temp but that is okay.  Add to flour mixture.  Add eggs.  Mix on low for 30 seconds and high for three minutes.  Add rest of flour until it forms a soft  dough.  Knead until the dough is soft and elastic, about 3 to 5 minutes.  Cover and let rise until doubled in size.  Punch down and let rest 10 minutes.  Roll out into a 12 X 18 rectangle.  In a bowl mix brown sugar, 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 cup butter and cinnamon.  Sprinkle over dough.  Sprinkle nuts over the filling.  Starting from the long side of the rectangle roll up and seal edges.  Slice into twelve pieces.  Arrange pieces in buttered 9 X 13 pan.  Cover and let rise 45 minutes or until nearly doubled in size.  Bake in 350 oven for 25 to 30 minutes.  Drizzle with powdered sugar icing.
