   1      package       -- (1/4 oz) active dry
                        -- yeast
     3/4  cup           warm water -- (110~ to 115~)
   4      cups          to 4-1/2 cups all-purpose
     1/4  cup           sugar
   1 1/2  teaspoons     salt
     1/2  cup           warm milk -- (110~ to 115~)
     1/4  cup           butter or margarine -- soften
   1                    egg
     1/4  cup           butter or margarine -- melted
     1/2  cup           packed brown sugar
   4      teaspoons     ground cinnamon

In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water. Add 2 cups of
flour, sugar, salt, milk, butter, egg and remaining water; beat on medium
speed for 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
Turn onto a floured board; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8
minutes.  Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and
let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch down. Roll into
a 16x12" rectangle. Brush with butter. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon;
sprinkle over butter. Let dough rest for 6 minutes. Cut lengthwise into
three 16x4" strips.  Cut each strip into sixteen 4x1" pieces. Twist and
place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30
minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden.
