Ingredients

Rolls

  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • ½ cups sugar
  • 4 teaspoons instant yeast
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cups milk
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups strawberry preserves

Strawberry Glaze

  • 1 cup freeze-dried strawberries
  • 5 Tablespoons powdered sugar
  • ½ cup milk

Instructions

Rolls

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine flour, sugar, yeast, and salt.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, heat milk and butter until butter melts.
  • Allow mixture to cool to 120-130 degrees.
  • Pour milk mixture over dry ingredients and beat with a flat beater until combined.
  • Add egg and beat an additional 2 minutes.
  • Switch to dough hook and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Place dough in a covered, oiled container.
  • Allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about an hour.
  • While dough is rising, Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface.
  • Roll into a rectangle that is 1/8" thick.
  • Spread dough with jam.
  • Cut into 1" wide strips.
  • Cut each strip in half.
  • Beginning with the outer edge, roll strip toward center to form a spiral.
  • Place on prepared baking sheet.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise until doubled, about 1 1/2 hours.
  • While dough is proofing, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Bake until golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.
  • Allow to cool before adding glaze.

Glaze

  • Place strawberries in bowl of food processor.
  • Process to fine powder.
  • Place in small bowl.
  • Add powdered sugar and milk.
  • Mix.

Notes

  • If milk mixture gets too hot, don't worry! Allow it to cool to 120-130 degrees before pouring it into the dry ingredients.
  • Don't have a big enough lidded container to allow the dough to rise? You can put the dough in a glass bowl and cover it with plastic wrap!
  • You can use a pizza cutter to cut dough into strips before rolling, or roll the dough as one large roll and then use a sharp knife/piece of plain-unflavored dental floss to cut it into individual rolls!
  • If you want the dough/rolls to proof faster, place them near something warm like the oven! Just don't put the dough in the oven.
  • Don't over fill the rolls with filling! It may not look like much, but It's enough. If you add any more filling, when you roll the strips, the filling will spill out everywhere and make a huge mess!
