How To Make Strawberry Sweet Rolls
Your kids will love to help make these strawberry sweet rolls. Even if your children are still little, they’ll love mixing ingredients, spreading out the strawberries, and rolling up the buns.
When strawberries are in season, you’ll definitely want to make this recipe with fresh berries. But throughout the winter, you can enjoy the same great flavor using frozen berries that you thaw. We always freeze bags and bags full of strawberries every summer so that we have enough to make strawberry recipes throughout the winter.
We LOVE pouring lots of icing on top of our strawberry sweet rolls, but you can skip the icing if you prefer.
Super Easy Strawberry Sweet Rolls Recipe
- 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
- 2 cups fresh hulled and cubed strawberries
- ⅓ cup sugar
- 1 ½ cup powdered sugar
- 1-2 tbsp milk
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- Combine half of your flour, yeast, sugar, and salt in a large bowl.
- Heat butter, milk, and water together over medium-low heat until melted and completely liquid.
- Pour in butter mixture and beat until just blended.
- 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.
- Set in a warm spot for 10 minutes to rise.
- 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.
- Roll out your dough into a large rectangle, then generously spread strawberries over the entire surface.
- Loosely roll your dough into a spiral, making sure not to squeeze too much strawberry mixture out in the process.
- With a serrated knife, cut into 1-inch rolls using a sawing motion.
- Arrange 1 inch apart in a pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
- Mix icing ingredients vigorously with a whisk, and drizzle over fully cooked rolls.
