4 1/2 to 5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 (1/4-ounce) package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup water


1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened


1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Butter, melted
1 tablespoon honey



Combine 2 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, yeast and salt in bowl .

Place 3/4 cup butter, milk and water in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat until very warm (120°F to 130°F).

Add milk mixture and egg to flour mixture. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, 2-3 minutes or until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle.

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

Combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon in bowl.

Punch down dough. Roll dough into 16x14-inch rectangle on lightly floured surface. Spread dough with 1/4 cup softened butter to within 1/2 inch of edges; sprinkle with sugar-cinnamon mixture. Roll up, jelly-roll fashion, beginning with 16-inch side; seal seam well.

Cut into 16 (1-inch) rolls with serrated knife. Place rolls in 2 greased 9-inch baking pans. Cover; let rise about 30 minutes.

Heat oven to 375°F.

Bake 25-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan. Cool completely.

Combine 1 tablespoon butter and honey in bowl; mix well. Brush glaze over rolls. Serve with Butter with Canola Oil.

Recipe Tip

Rolls can be baked in 13x9-inch baking pan instead of 2 (9-inch) round baking pans. Bake 30-40 minutes.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

I used rapid rise yeast I was in a hurry that day instead of regular yeast and it turned out perfectly! This recipe was very delicious and I will make it over and over and over again.
I actually triple the cinnamon and add raisins also to the interior before I roll and slice them. This will make your home smell like you want company.
