TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-3/4 to 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • FILLING:
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 6-1/2 teaspoons half-and-half cream
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons butter, softened

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the oats, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, butter, egg, salt and 1 cup all-purpose flour. Beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  • 2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Punch dough down. Roll into an 18-in. x 12-in. rectangle; spread with butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges.
  • 4. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; pinch seams to seal. Cut into 12 slices. Place cut sides down in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • 5. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. For icing, in a small bowl, beat the confectioners' sugar, cream and butter until smooth. Drizzle over warm rolls. Yield: 1 dozen.
