Have water at 110°-115°F and all other ingredients at room temperature.


Measure the first 5 ingredients into a bowl; mix with pastry blender or fork. Dissolve the yeast in water. Let stand 3 to 5 minutes; stir. Add egg and yeast-mixture to flour-mixture; blend. The dough will be a little sticky with cheese bits throughout. Turn onto lightly floured board. Turn over 2 or 3 times to coat with flour. Divide into two parts.  Prepare Filling, mixing all ingredients together well.


Roll one part to a 12-inch square and spread half the Filling evenly over the dough. Roll up tightly. Pinch edges of dough into roll, turn to bottom and "tie-off" (see below) into 12 slices. Place in buttered 2-inch muffin cups or in 8-inch round layer pan. Shape rest of dough. Let rise in warm place until doubled...about 1 hour. Bake rolls 15 to 20 minutes  in preheated 375°F oven. Remove from pans and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar (optional) while still warm.


To "Tie-Off" dough, take a piece of strong thread, or dental floss, about 16 inches long, slip under roll of dough and cross on top to cut slices smoothly and quickly.



*You can substitute Instant (fast-rising) Yeast in place of Active Dry Yeast in batter/no knead recipes. When using Instant Yeast, expect your batter/dough to rise about 50% faster. Adjust your rise times accordingly. Traditional methods: use equal amounts; Bread Machine: use 1/2 tsp Instant Yeast OR 3/4 tsp Active Dry Yeast per cup of flour in your recipe.
