Cinnamon Honey Buns

(12 servings)

  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine - softened
  • 1/2 cup honey - divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped toasted nuts - optional
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 (1 lb.) loaf frozen bread dough - thawed as package directs
  • 2/3 cup raisins
Direction Grease 12 muffins cups with 1 Tbsp. butter.

To make honey-nut topping, mix together 1 Tbsp. butter, 1/4 cup honey and chopped nuts, if desired. Place 1 teaspoon of mixture in each muffin cup.

To make honey-cinnamon filling, mix together remaining 2 Tbsp. butter, remaining 1/4 cup honey and cinnamon.

On floured work surface, roll bread dough to form a rectangle 8 x 18 inches. Spread honey-cinnamon filling evenly over dough. Sprinkle evenly with raisins. Starting with the long side, roll dough into a log.

Cut log into 12 pieces approximately 1-1/2 inches wide. Place each piece of dough into a prepared muffin cup, with cut side up. Set muffin pan in a warm place and allow dough to rise for 30 minutes.

Place muffin pan on a foil-lined baking sheet to catch drips. Bake at 375 F 20 minutes until buns are golden brown. Remove from oven and cool in pan 5 minutes. Invert muffin pan to remove buns.

Frozen bread dough from the grocery store gets mixed with nuts, honey and raisins to make great breakfast buns.
