Prep Time: 2 hrs 15 min
Baking Time: 25 min
Cooling Time: 30 min
In a large bowl, combine 2 1/2 cups flour, 1/2
cup sugar, yeast and salt. In a 1-quart saucepan, place 3/4 cup butter,
milk and water.
Cook over medium heat until very warm (120-degrees
Add milk mixture and egg to flour mixture.
Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, for 2
to 3 minutes or until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to make dough
easy to handle.
Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead
until smooth and elastic for about 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl and turn, greased-side
up. Cover and let rise in warm place for 1 to 1
1/2 hours or until double in size. (Dough is
ready if indentation remains when touched.) Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup
sugar and cinnamon. Punch down dough. Roll dough to 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. Cut into 16 (1-inch) rolls with serrated
knife. Place rolls in 2 greased 9-inch baking pans. Cover and let rise about 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375-degrees F.
Bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until golden
brown. Remove from pan. Cool completely.
In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon butter
and honey in small bowl. Mix well.
Brush glaze on rolls.
Alan's Kitchen Tip:
- Rolls can be baked in 13x9-inch baking pan
instead of 2 (9-inch) round baking pans. Bake
for 30 to 40 minutes.
