Total Time



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 cup cranberry sauce


3/4 cup powdered sugar

3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, melted

1 to 2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Half & Half

How to make

  1. STEP 1

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

  2. STEP 2

    Place 3/4 cup butter, milk and water into 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat until very warm (120ºF-130ºF).

  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 60-90 minutes or until double in size and indentation remains when dough is touched.

  5. STEP 5

    Punch down dough. Roll dough into 18x14-inch rectangle on lightly floured surface. Spread cranberry sauce evenly over dough to within 1/2 inch of edge. Roll up, beginning with 18-inch side; seal seam well.

  6. STEP 6

    Cut into 12 (1 1/2-inch) rolls with serrated knife. Place rolls into greased 13x9-inch baking pan. Cover; let rise about 30 minutes or until double in size.

  7. STEP 7

    Heat oven to 375ºF. Bake 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.

  8. STEP 8

    Combine all glaze ingredients in bowl; drizzle over rolls.
