Fig Jam Buns
Serves: 8
  • 1 (16-ounce) box hot roll mix *
  • 1 cup Fig Jam
  • 2 tablespoons firmly packed light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  1. Prepare hot roll mix according to package directions through step 4.
  2. Spray a cast-iron baking pan with cooking spray.
  3. Roll dough into an 18×12-inch rectangle. In a small bowl, stir together Fig Jam, brown sugar, and vanilla. Spread mixture onto dough, leaving a 1-inch border on one long side. Starting at long side with no border, roll up dough into a log; pinch seam to seal. Cut log into 8 (2¼-inch-thick) slices. Place slices, cut side down, on prepared pan. Loosely cover with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm, draft-free place (75º) for 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 375º.
  5. Bake until puffed and golden brown on top, 15 to 18 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk together confectioners’ sugar, bourbon, and milk until smooth; drizzle over buns. Serve warm.
