Overnight Strawberry Cream Cheese Rolls . . . do the prep work the night before, and have fresh from the oven sweet rolls in the morning.
I love looking for new variations for my basic sweet roll recipe. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good cinnamon roll, but sometimes it’s nice to change things up a little.
I love the combination of berries and cream cheese, and I just knew that together they would make one tasty sweet roll. Boy was I right. The berries add sweetness and the tangy cream cheese is the perfect compliment. These rolls are outrageous!
I don’t think there’s anything better than a fresh from the oven roll, but who wants to wake up at 5 am to make them? Not me! The best thing about these rolls is that you do all the hard work the night before, then pop them in the oven in the morning. Sweet rolls for breakfast, and you don’t have to sacrifice sleep!
How to make overnight strawberry cream cheese rolls:
After you whip up a batch of basic yeast dough, roll it out and spread it with the cream cheese mixture, then the strawberry filling. Roll up and pinch the edge to seal it. Don’t forget to set aside 1/3 cup of the cream cheese mixture to use in the icing.
Cut the log into 12 rolls and place in a well greased 9×13″ pan. Some of the filling will ooze out as you cut the rolls, so just spoon it on top of each roll as you go.
Now cover the pan tightly with plastic wrap, and place it in the refrigerator to chill overnight (8-10 hours). Take the rolls out and let them raise in a warm place for about an hour, or till doubled in size.
After they are baked till nice and golden brown, you drizzle them with a sweet cream cheese icing. Oh my.
Can I use different fruit in these sweet rolls?
-Absolutely! You could use raspberry jam and raspberries if you prefer. You could also try blueberry jam with blueberries. Feel free to experiment and let me know how they turn out!
