  • Place butter, brown sugar and corn syrup in medium saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes or until melted. Pour into a 13 x 9-inch pan OR two 9-inch square pans. Place rolls cut side down in pan. Cover and let rise until double (about 30 minutes). Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Invert on platter while warm.
