Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

I made some yummy cinnamon rolls the other day (recipe courtesy of the West Ladies of Homestead Blessings). I highly reccomend you try this recipe :)  In case you don't have their recipe, you can  view it below. I would love if you all would comment with your favorite recipe from the West Ladies. :)

 Mix 2 cups of flour with 2 Tbsp of yeast
Heat the water, oil, milk, honey, and salt until very warm

 Pour liquid mixture into flour mixture and beat well
Start adding the rest of the flour until dough is soft.
I mixed with a whisk mostly, then used my hands when the 'stickiness' was gone.

Knead briefly then let rest for 10min.

 Melt the stick of butter, remove from heat. Stir in 1-1/12 cup brown sugar until it becomes a spreadable texture

Roll dough into a flat rectangle 
Brush on brown sugar/melted butter mixture. Sprinkle with cinnamon
Roll dough. Pinch edges to help keep it together. You can cut it with a piece of thread. Take the thread and slide it under the roll. Then cross it and pull. Squeeze them in your pan and bake at 400degrees for 12-15min. Brush with butter...
...sprinkle with powdered sugar, and eat up!! (sorry the color is a little off in the pics. My kitchen has bad lighting :s)
4-5 cups flour
2 Tbsp yeast
1 cup milk
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 Tbsp honey
1 tsp. salt
1 stick butter
1-1/2 cup brown sugar
