Adding oats to the dough makes these sweet rolls a little more hearty. The gooey topping is finger-licking good! —Barbara Simonds, Wellsboro, Pennsylvania

  • 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon maple flavoring


  1. In a large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, oats, brown sugar, salt and yeast. In a saucepan, heat milk and shortening to 120°-130°. Add to the oat mixture; mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Add enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  2. Punch dough down. Roll into a 16x12-in. rectangle. Combine filling ingredients; sprinkle over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Cut into 12 slices.
  3. Sprinkle nuts into a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Combine the remaining topping ingredients; pour over nuts. Place rolls over topping. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before inverting rolls onto a wire rack.
