This sweet treat is perfect for after school snacks or weekend brunches.
Ingredients
Dough:
  • 3 ½ cups flour + more for surface dusting
  • 1 packet rapid rise yeast (2 ¼ tsp)
  • ½ stick butter
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 tbsp water
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp salt
Filling:
  • 2 cups fresh hulled and cubed strawberries
  • ⅓ cup sugar
Icing drizzle:
  • 1 ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Combine half of your flour, yeast, sugar, and salt in a large bowl.
  2. Heat butter, milk, and water together over medium-low heat until melted and completely liquid.
  3. Pour in butter mixture and beat until just blended.
  4. Add in more flour, egg, and vanilla extract. Beat for 5 seconds, then switch to hand-kneading until a dough ball forms. If you find your dough is too sticky, add in more flour ¼ cup at a time.
  5. Set in a warm spot for 10 minutes to rise.
  6. While dough is rising, make strawberry filling by combining strawberries and sugar in a large skillet over medium-high heat for 10 minutes, stirring frequently until you have a jam-like texture. Set aside.
  7. Roll out your dough into a large rectangle, then generously spread strawberries over the entire surface.
  8. Loosely roll your dough into a spiral, making sure not to squeeze too much strawberry mixture out in the process.
  9. With a serrated knife, cut into 1-inch rolls using a sawing motion.
  10. Arrange 1 inch apart in a pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
  11. Mix icing ingredients vigorously with a whisk, and drizzle over fully cooked rolls.
  12. Enjoy!
