  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 1 egg
  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour + 1/4 cup all purpose flour (for sprinkling)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 package rapid-rise yeast
  • 4 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup Great Grains® Cranberry Almond Crunch
  • 1/4 cup Great Grains® Crunchy Pecan
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Topping (optional)
  • Great Grains® Crunchy Pecan
  • Great Grains® Cranberry Almond Crunch
  1. Mix milk, water, and butter together in a microwave-safe dish. Heat the wet ingredients for about 30 seconds, until the butter has melted and the milk and water are warm (roughly, about 110 degrees Fahrenheit). Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, mix flour (3 1/2 cups), salt, sugar, and rapid-rise yeast together. Add in the wet ingredients, and the egg.
  3. Knead dough, by hand (on a floured surface) or with a standing mixture (using the dough hook attachment), for about 2-3 minutes, or until the dough 'springs' back when touched and is no longer sticky.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface (use the remaining 1/4 cup of flour here), form into a ball, and allow the dough to rest for 5-10 minutes.
  5. Next, roll the dough into a rectangle, about 15x9 in size. Evenly spread softened butter over the dough, and evenly sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon over the butter. Next, sprinkle both Great Grains® Cranberry Almond Crunch and Great Grains® Crunchy Pecan on top.
  6. Roll the dough up tightly, and slice into 14 rolls.
  7. I used two 9" cake pans, covered in non-stick foil. Place 7 rolls in each pan, leaving a little space between each (6 on the edges, 1 in the center).
  8. Cover the pans with a damp towel or paper towel, and allow to rise a warm place, for 20-25 minutes.*
  9. Once the rolls have risen, preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  10. Combine powdered sugar, milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon together. Drizzle over the rolls and top with Great Grains® Cranberry Almond Crunch and Great Grains® Crunchy Pecan, if desired.
  11. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

**If you do not have a warm spot in your house, preheat the oven to 175 degrees, turn it off, then allow the dough to rise in there. Make sure to cover the dough with a lightly damp towel.
