Rum Sweet Rolls Recipe

Rum Sweet Rolls Recipe

These plump tender rolls are a sweet choice for breakfast or a coffee break...and easy to make, too! I bake batches for the holidays and other special gatherings. Sometimes I replace the packaged mix with my recipe for homemade yeast rolls.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 package (16 ounces) hot roll mix
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons water
  • 3-1/2 teaspoons rum extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • 1. Prepare hot roll mix according to package directions. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; gently knead for 5 minutes. Cover with a bowl and let rest for 5 minutes. Roll into a 12x10-in. rectangle. Spread with butter to within 1/2 in. of edges.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, water and extract until smooth. Spread half of the mixture over butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  • 3. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 rolls. Place cut side up in a greased 11x7-in. baking dish. Cover and let rest until nearly doubled, about 25 minutes.
  • 4. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Cool for 15 minutes. Drizzle with remaining confectioners' sugar mixture. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen.

"These were ok, a little hard to cut as the dough was soft. Also thought the rum flavor a bit over powering."
