Sweet Honey Butter Rolls

On the hunt for a little roll that makes a statement all on its own for a wedding reception.  We are liking this, a sweet dough spread with honey butter, rolled, and baked to golden brown.  I think if I took a little more time I could make them look nicer, I was in a hurry and it shows.  But, love that honey butter flavor!

Sweet Roll Dough:
1/4 cup warm water (110°)
1 pkt (2¼ tsp) dry yeast
1 Tbl sugar
1/2 cup warm milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt

Honey Butter:
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 Tbl honey

For honey butter, stir together butter and honey, put in refrigerator.  For sweet dough, in large bowl of mixer pour warm water, sprinkle yeast over water, and sprinkle 1 Tbl sugar over yeast.  Let yeast sit for 5 minutes.  Add warm milk, 1/3 cup sugar, egg, butter, flour, and salt.  Mix and knead.  Put dough in sprayed bowl, cover, and let rise one hour.  Divide dough into 4 equal pieces.  Roll one piece into a 8″ diameter circle, spread with 1/4 of honey butter mixture, cut with pizza cutter into 8 equal triangles.  Roll each starting at big end up to the point.  Place on silpat lined baking tray or sprayed baking sheet point down.  Repeat with remaining 3 pieces of dough.  Let rise 30-45 minutes.  Bake in preheated 350° oven for 10-12 minutes or until just golden.  Makes 32 small rolls.
