1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup raisins


1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
2/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, melted
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


Combine 2 cups flour, warm milk, 1/2 cup butter, sugar, yeast, eggs and salt in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth. Stir in raisins and enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle.

Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead 3-5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place into greased bowl; turn greased-side up. Cover; let rise in warm place 1-1 1/2 hoursuntil double in size. (Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched.)

Punch down dough. Stir together all filling ingredients except cinnamon in bowl. Spread half of filling onto bottom of greased 13x9-inch baking pan. Stir cinnamon into remaining filling.

Roll out dough on lightly floured surface into 18x9-inch rectangle; spread with remaining filling. Roll up, jelly-roll fashion, beginning with 18-inch side; seal seams well. Cut into 18 (1-inch) slices using serrated knife; place slices in prepared pan. Cover; let rise 1 hour or until double in size.

Heat oven to 375°F.

Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately invert pan onto serving platter; remove pan.


Glazed Orange Rolls: Prepare dough as directed above (except omit raisins). Omit filling. Prepare orange filling: stir together 1/3 cup melted butter, 3/4 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon light corn syrup and 1 tablespoon grated orange zest in bowl. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface into 18x9-inch rectangle; spread with orange filling. Roll up, jelly-roll fashion, beginning with 18-inch side. Pinch edge of dough into roll to seal well. Cut into 1-inch slices; place slices in greased 13x9-inch baking pan. Cover; let rise 1 hour or until double in size. Heat oven to 375°F.  Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately invert pan onto cooling rack; remove pan. Invert rolls onto serving platter, top-sides up.  Prepare glaze: stir together 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/4 cup orange juice and 1 teaspoon grated orange zest in bowl. Drizzle glaze over warm rolls.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

I bought the cook book more than 12years ago, the first time I made them they were a hit, for family, co-workers,friends , church, girls night and now school event. some one always come up with a reason why I should make them and I'm happy to ablige just to hear them say, this is the last one while they reach for one more, lol. I just enjoy it. Thank you.
I made these rolls yesterday and they are delicious! I did add some maple flavoring to the dough and to the filling plus I added some whipping cream (not whipped) to the filling because I thought it was not runny enough and I did not want it to turn hard after they were baked. The recipe is definitely a keeper! Make sure that you put the rolls in a deeper pan so that the filling does not bubble over on to your oven.
I used to have what I believe is this recipe in a land o lakes cookbook I purchased while in line at the Supermarket. I loved this recipe, I loaned my recipe to a neighbor who moved away and never returned it to me. Has been looking for a copy of it ever since and can not locate it. Hope this is it!
I started making both of these recipes to give as gifts to neighbors. For those who like nuts, I sprinkle 3/4 cup pecans over the Caramel sauce in the bottom of the pan and add about 1/4 cup ground pecans to the filling. For the Glazed Orange Rolls I add two tablespoons orange zest to the dough (I like a stronger orange flavor). Neighbors (young and old) love these rolls, I love these rolls.

I also make the Glazed Orange rolls as well.
Whenever I make these, all you hear are the "oohs" and "aahs".

What in the World Can You Dip in Chocolate?
January 6, 2016 by Land O'Lakes Test Kitchen

Chocolate’s complex flavor brings out the sweetness and tanginess of fruit, mellows the heat of peppers, and comes alive when introduced to a little bit of salt. The real question should be, “What can’t you dip in chocolate?” More ...
