Cinnamon Pear Rolls
Recipe Courtesy North Dakota Wheat Commission

1/2 cup warm water (80 F)
6-ounce jar babyfood pears, divided
1 egg, lightly beaten
3 cups bread flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon nonfat dry milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package fast-rising yeast
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins or nuts (optional)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 to 2 teaspoons milk


Place water, 1/2 cup pears, egg, flour, sugar, dry milk, salt
and yeast in baking pan in order suggested by your bread
machine manual, adding pears with liquids. Set on dough cycle.

When cycle
is complete, place dough on lightly floured surface, kneading in sufficient
flour to make dough easy to handle. Cover; let rest 10
minutes. Roll dough into a 10x14-inch rectangle. Spread with remaining pears
(about 2 tablespoons). Mix brown sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle over
dough; add nuts or raisins. Roll up, beginning at wide side.
Pinch seam to seal.

Cut roll into 12 slices and place
in 9x13x2-inch baking pan coated with non-stick spray. Cover; let rise
in warm area until double in size, about 45 minutes. Bake
at 375 F for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from pan
and cool on wire rack.


Mix powdered sugar, vanilla and milk as
needed to make a thin icing. Drizzle over warm rolls.

Makes 12 rolls.
