Overnight Caramel Rolls

This is a recipe that I received years ago from another home schooling mother.  I have altered it a bit, but I am thankful to her for giving me this recipe.  It has become one of our family favorites!

You will need:
1 package yeast
3 1/2 cups warm water
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
2 teaspoon salt
10-11 cups flour

Note:  I quadrupled this batch, so keep that in mind when looking at the pictures. 

Pour water into large bowl.  Sprinkle yeast on warm water.  Add sugar and oil.
Beat in 3 cups flour into mixture.  Then add the salt.  Mix in remaining flour. 
Make a soft dough and knead lightly until a soft dough is formed.  

Put the dough into oiled bowl.  Cover with a damp towel.  
Let rise for 4 hours.

Divide the dough into two and roll each part out into a rectangular shape.

Melt 1/2 cup butter and spread it on the dough.  
Sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar.

Cut the dough in half. 
 A pizza cutter works great! : )

Then roll up.  Slice into 1 1/2 inch slices.

In the meantime....Make your caramel sauce.

You will need: 

2 Cups brown sugar
1 cup melted butter
1/2 cup corn syrup

Heat on medium-high heat until mixed well.  Do not boil.
Pour sauce into pans.  
After slicing the dough, lay each roll onto the sauce leaving a little room for 'growth'.  
Let rise 'til morning.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until done. 
Remove from oven.
Let cool for 5 minutes.
Then invert pan onto counter.
May be placed back in the pan or on a serving platter with the caramel side up.

Sorry for not having a finished photo with the baked rolls.....I forgot to take pictures the next morning.  : (  
I guess we were too anxious to eat them.  : )
