To make the rolls

  • Warm up the milk just enough to take the chill. It needs to be slightly warm. Add the sugar and the yeast to the milk and let it sit a few minutes until it starts to bubble.
  • Melt the butter and add it to the yeast along with the egg and molasses. Make sure the butter isn't too hot when you add it, you do not want to cook the egg.
  • Measure the flour and put into a large bowl. Add the salt and give it a quick stir. Add the yeast/molasses mixture and stir until combined.
  • Put dough on a well floured surface and knead for 3-4 minutes. Add enough flour as needed to keep the dough from sticking to your workplace and your hands. Set dough in a large, oiled bowl, cover and let it double in size. Meanwhile, make the Gingerbread Sticky Rolls filling and the Karo mixture for the bottom of the baking pan.

  • Mix together the butter, brown sugar and spice mix and set aside until ready to use.

  • Assemble and bake the rolls
  • After the dough has doubled in size, punch down and roll out into a rectangle approximately 11 x 1Spread the filling over the dough and roll up just as if you were making cinnamon rolls.
  • Cut the dough into 12 rolls. Place the rolls into the Karo mixture and cover with a towel. Let the rolls set until they double in size.
  • Bake rolls in a 350 degree oven for 22-25 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Have a pan covered with foil ready and flip rolls onto the foil as soon as they come out of the oven. Let cool (slightland enjoy!
