Raw cinnamon rolls ready for baking

Ingredients

  • 1 (16 oz.) pkg. hot roll mix
  • 4 Tbsp of sugar, divided
  • 1 cup warm water (120-130 degrees)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 Tbsp + 1/2 cup butter, softened and divided
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries, sliced
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

Method

Combine hot roll mix, yeast, 2 Tbsp sugar, warm water, egg and 2 Tbsp of the softened butter in a mixing bowl.

Blend well into a soft dough.

Lightly flour a flat surface and turn the dough onto the flour.

Knead the dough until smooth (about 5 minutes) then cover with a kitchen towel and allow it to stand for 5 minutes.

Place the strawberries, brown sugar, corn syrup and remaining butter into a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat.

Cook for 3 minutes stirring continually.

Pour the mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 13x9 baking dish.

Preheat the oven to 375F degrees.

Roll the dough out into a rectangle shape on a lightly floured cutting board.

Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Mix well.

Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar over the entire piece of dough.

Roll the dough into a jelly roll starting with the longer side.

Pinch at the seam to seal, then cut into 12 slices.

Arrange rolls cut-side down into the strawberry sauce in the pan.

Bake until golden brown, about 22 minutes.

Invert onto a platter to serve.

Makes 12 rolls.
