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, 2-3 minutes or 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 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.

  7. STEP 7

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

  8. STEP 8

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  9. STEP 9

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

  10. STEP 10

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

Tip #1

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