Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in warm milk, salt, whole wheat flour and 3 cups all purpose flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with nonstick cooking spray, turning once to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 1/4 hours.
  2. Punch down. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 8 times. Cover and let rest for 5 minutes. Roll into an 18-inch square. Spread 1 cup fruit spread to within 1/2-inch of edges; sprinkle with cinnamon. Roll up jelly-roll style; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 pieces; place in a 13x9x2-inch baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  3. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes. For glaze, in a bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, cold milk and remaining fruit spread. Drizzle over rolls.
