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!

How to make overnight strawberry cream cheese rolls:

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.

    These are so good! Mine aren’t nearly as pretty as yours, but luckily taste is what matters.
    Have you tried freezing these before cooking? I’m wondering if they would still turn out okay if I made two batches and froze one.

    • I agree that taste is what matters! I haven’t tried freezing them, but I have had good luck freezing other sweet rolls before baking. I just put them in the pan, then cover tightly with plastic wrap then foil. I thaw them and let them rise, then bake like normal. I think that should work with this recipe. If you try it, let me know how they turn out!

  2. Took a little longer than regular cinnamon rolls, but they are so good!

  3. My family loved these rolls! The icing is to die for, next time I’ll double it!
