45 min
02 hrs 30 min



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 Land O Lakes® Butter

3/4 cup milk

3/4 cup water

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg


1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

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

  5. STEP 5

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

  6. STEP 6

    Punch down dough. Roll dough to 16x14-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 16-inch side; seal seam well.

  7. STEP 7

    Cut into 16 (1-inch) rolls with serrated knife. Place rolls onto greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise about 30 minutes.

  8. STEP 8

    Heat oven to 375°F. Bake 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with butter.

Tip #1

Rolls can be baked in 13x9-inch greased baking pan. Bake 30-40 minutes or until golden brown.
