Ingredients

Dough

4 1/2 to 5 1/2 cups
all-purpose flour
1/2 cup
sugar
1 (1/4-ounce) envelope
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

Filling

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

Glaze

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

Spread

Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil

Directions

  1. Combine 2 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, yeast, and salt in large bowl.
  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. 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. 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. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon in small bowl.
  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. 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. Heat oven to 375°F.
  9. Bake 25-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan. Cool completely.
  10. Combine 1 tablespoon butter and honey in small bowl; mix well. Brush glaze over rolls. Serve with Butter with Canola Oil.

Recipe Tips
