    Make dough. Stir together the 16 oz. package of hot roll mix and included yeast packet in a bowl. Add 1 cup warm water, 1/4 cup softened butter, 1 egg and 1 egg yolk; stir until dough forms (dough will be very sticky). Turn out onto well-floured surface and knead 1/2 cup all purpose flour in until a smooth dough forms, about 5 minutes. Cover dough and let rest 5 minutes. Roll dough out to a 20" x 12" rectangle. Spread filling evenly over dough surface. Roll up from long end to resemble cinnamon rolls, pinching seam and ends to seal. Cut log in half lengthwise. Twist pieces together and place in prepared loaf pan in an “S” shape, tucking ends under. Cover pan and let rise in a warm area 15 minutes.
