Dissolve yeast in water. Add milk, butter, sugar, salt, eggs and 1-1/3 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough.
On a floured board, knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes.
Place in a greased bow; turn once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan. Add remaining filling ingredients; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; simmer 3-4 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat; cool.
Punch dough down; divide in half. Roll each half into a 15 x 12″ rectangle; spread with filling. Roll up, jelly-roll style, starting with long side. Slice into 1″ rolls. Place with cut side down in two greased 13 x 9 x 2″ baking pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
Bake at 350° F. for 20-25 minutes. Cool.
Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over rolls.
Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
