Homemade whole wheat cinnamon rolls

This recipe is from "Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread" cookbook. Favorite recipes from the Belle Center Amish Community.

2 pkg. active dry yeast
2 1/2 cup warm water
4 Tbsp. shortening ( I use olive oil)
2 tsp salt
6 cup whole "white" wheat
1/4 cup honey

Dissolve yeast in water. Stir in honey. Add shortening (olive oil) and salt and 2 cup flour. Mix well. Stir in remaining flour and let rise (approx. 45 min.) until double in bulk. Punch down well. Let rise again. Roll out and put in pans. I let it rise again. Makes 2 large loaves or 3 small ones. Bake at 375 for 30 - 35 min.

To make the cinnamon rolls I used half the dough and rolled it flat added melted butter, cinnamon and sugar. Roll the dough up and slice into rolls. Place rolls in a baking pan. Allow to rise. Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 min. Glaze is powdered sugar and 3 tsp of milk.
