Makes 9 rolls.
2 1/4 to 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup quick oats
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 package FLEISCHMANN'S Active Dry or Rapid Rise Yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, cut up
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons SPICE ISLANDS Ground Cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
Honey Butter Icing
1/3 cup sifted powdered sugar
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
2 tablespoons honey
Directions In large bowl, combine 3/4 cup flour, oats, granulated sugar,
un-dissolved yeast and salt. Heat 1/4 cup butter, milk, and water until very
warm (120 to 130oF). Gradually add to dry ingredients; beat 2 minutes at medium
speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add egg and 1/2 cup flour;
beat 2 minutes at high speed. With spoon, stir in enough remaining flour to make
soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth, about 5 minutes.
Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover; let rise in warm,
draft-free place 45 to 60 minutes or until doubled. Punch down dough. (When
using Rapid Rise Yeast, cover kneaded dough and let rest 10 minutes. Proceed
On lightly floured surface, roll dough to 18 x 8 inches; brush with melted
butter. Sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon and raisins, if desired, to within
1/2 inch of edges. Roll up tightly from long side, pinching seam to seal; cut
into 9 equal pieces. Place, cut sides up, in greased 8 x 8-inch pan. Cover; let
rise in warm place 45 to 60 minutes or until doubled.
Bake at 350oF for 25 to 30 minutes or until done. Remove from pan; cool on wire
rack. In small bowl, mix powdered sugar and softened butter with fork until
blended; stir in honey until smooth. Drizzle or spread on rolls. Bread Machine

as suggested by manufacturer; use 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour and 1 1/2
teaspoons FLEISCHMANN'S Bread Machine Yeast. Process on dough/manual cycle. When
complete, remove dough to floured surface; knead in additional flour to make
dough easy to handle, if necessary. Roll out dough and proceed as directed.
