Ingredients


  • Dough
  • 4-1/2 to 5 cups cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 envelopes Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/4 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • Peanut Butter Filling
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter OR margarine, softened
  • 1 egg
  • Chocolate Glaze
  • 2 (1-ounce) squares semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts

Directions


Combine 1-1/3 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt in large mixer bowl.  Heat milk, water, and peanut butter until very warm (120o to 130oF).  Gradually add to flour mixture.  Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer.  Add egg and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed.  Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.  Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes.  Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Divide dough into 2 equal portions.  Roll each half to 14 x 8-inch rectangle.  Spread each with half of Peanut Butter Filling.  Roll up tightly from long side, pinching seam to seal.  Cut each into 8 equal pieces.  Place, cut side up, in 2 greased 9-inch round pans.  Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.

Bake at 375oF for 15 to 20 minutes or until done.  Remove from pans; cool on wire racks.  Drizzle with Chocolate Glaze; sprinkle with chopped peanuts.

Peanut Butter Filling:  Combine all ingredients in small bowl; stir until smooth.

Chocolate Glaze:  Microwave chocolate and butter in microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) for 25 seconds; stir. Microwave on HIGH for an additional 25 seconds; stir.
Note: Microwave cooking times may vary.
