Cinnamon Rolls

2 pkg. yeast
2 cups warm water
1 Box of white cake mix
4 cups flour

1 stick butter or margarine (melted)
Sugar to your taste *
Cinnamon to your taste *
Walnuts (optional)

Vanilla Frosting:
Dissolve 2 pkgs. yeast in 2 cups of warm water in large bowl. Add box of cake mix and 4 cups of flour. Mix well. Let rise to double, about one hour (in oven, just barely turned on).

Roll flour mixture into large rectangle on a floured surface, to about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Pour melted butter along center of rectangle and spread to edges until entire surface is covered with butter. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon and add nuts if desired, press nuts into the dough (gently being careful you don't poke through the dough) so they don't all end up on one end when rolling your dough. Very gently roll the rectangle into one (lengthwise) log. Use a floured spatula to lift and roll, lift and roll, etc. Cut roll into 3/4 inch slices.

Let your rolls rise for another 45 minutes and bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Frost with vanilla frosting while still warm.
