Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan, heat milk and butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Add eggs; beat until smooth (dough will be very sticky). Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring the filling ingredients to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Cool.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into an 18-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Spread filling over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 18 slices.
  4. Place cut side down in two 8-in. square baking dishes coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 40 minutes. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. For glaze, in a small bowl, beat the confectioners’ sugar, butter and half-and-half until blended. Spread over warm rolls. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Land O'Lakes light stick butter.
