Ingredients


  • Peanut-Honey Topping
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1-1/2 cups coarsely chopped dry roasted peanuts
  • Rolls
  • 4-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 envelopes Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter OR margarine

Directions


Peanut-Honey Topping: Combine brown sugar and honey in a small bowl. Pour into two greased 9-inch round pans. Sprinkle with peanuts.  Set aside. 

Rolls: Combine 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar, undissolved yeast and salt. Heat milk, water and butter until very warm (120º to 130ºF). Stir into 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. Stir in remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Let dough rest 10 minutes. 

Divide dough in half. On lightly floured surface, roll each into a 14 x 9-inch rectangle. Brush with melted butter. Mix 1 cup sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle evenly over dough. Beginning at short end, roll up tightly as for jelly roll. Pinch seams to seal. 

Cut into 1-inch slices; place cut side up in prepared pans. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour. Bake at 350ºF for 30 to 35 minutes or until done. Invert immediately on platter.  Cool.
