1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 (1/4-ounce) package active dry yeast

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into small pieces

1 1/4 cups whole milk

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg


1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened


1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

6 ounces cream cheese, softened

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

How to make

  1. STEP 1

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

  2. STEP 2

    Place 1 cup butter and milk in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat until butter is melted. Remove from heat; let cool until very warm (120°F-135°F).

  3. STEP 3

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

  4. STEP 4

    Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead about 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 hours or until double in size. Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine 1/2 cup granulated sugar and cinnamon in small bowl.

  6. STEP 6

    Punch down dough. Roll dough to 15x14-inch rectangle on lightly floured surface. Spread dough with 1/4 cup butter to within 1/2 inch of edges; sprinkle with sugar-cinnamon mixture. Roll up, jelly-roll fashion, beginning with 15-inch side; seal seam well.

  7. STEP 7

    Cut into 15 (1-inch) rolls with serrated knife. Place rolls onto greased 13x9-inch baking pan. Cover; let rise about 30 minutes.

  8. STEP 8

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  9. STEP 9

    Bake 30-40 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool slightly.

  10. STEP 10

    Beat all icing ingredients in bowl at medium speed until smooth. Spread icing over rolls.
