Start making the cinnamon rolls by mixing together the lukewarm milk, sugar, and salt. Add the yeast after bubbling for five minutes in lukewarm water. It will rise better if a small amount of sugar is added to the water. After all this is mixed, stir in 2 eggs, soft shortening, and flour. Add the flour in 2 additions: using the amount necessary to make it easy to handle. Knead the dough for 6 minutes. Let the dough rise to double in size, punch the dough down and let rise again. After the second rising, divide dough for desired roll, which means that you roll the dough into an oblong 9x18 inches. Spread butter and sprinkle 1/2 C. sugar and cinnamon onto the dough. Sprinkle raisins if desired. Roll up tightly, beginning at wide side. Seal well by pinning edges of roll together. Cut roll into 1-inch slices and place apart in a greased jellyroll pan. Cover and let rise until double in bulk (about 40 minutes.) Bake 25-30 minutes at 375 degrees. To test for doneness, separate a roll slightly with fork to see if it is well baked.


To create the frosting begin by beating the cream cheese and margarine together in a bowl with a mixer. Gradually add in the powdered sugar. Once all of the sugar has been added continue mixing for another 15 minutes. After mixing, gently fold in the lemon juice and the almond extract. Once the frosting is complete spread it on top of the cinnamon rolls and enjoy.
