Sweet Roll Heaven!

When planning a family breakfast, is there any question that there should be homemade sweet rolls on the menu? To me it is one of the most wonderful comfort food there is, hot from the oven with a heavenly aroma hanging in the air. Here are some ideas for Easter breakfast or any morning.

If you’re not an early riser to start the recipe in the morning (how many of us are?) make them the night before up to the step where you put the rolls in the pan. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator. Take the rolls out in the morning, remove plastic wrap, cover with a towel and let sit for 1-1½ hours then bake as directed.

Happy Family Breakfast Time to All! Happy Easter!

Apple Butter Cinnamon Chip Sweet Rolls

Another twist on sweet rolls. Cinnamon chips in the sweet roll dough, rolled up with sweet apple butter on the inside. I remember having peanut butter & apple butter sandwiches growing up, yum. Hmmmm…maybe next time I will make peanut butter glaze.

Apple Butter Cinnamon Chip Sweet Rolls

1¼ cups warm water (110°)
2½ tsp (1 pkt) dry yeast
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbl oil
3½ cups flour
1½ tsp salt
3/4 cup cinnamon chips
1/2 cup apple butter
3 Tbl sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

In bowl of electric mixer, sprinkle yeast over warm water. Add the 1/2 cup sugar, oil, and 1 cup flour. Mix until well combined.  Add remaining flour, salt, and cinnamon chips. Knead. Let rise until doubled. Mix the 3 Tbl sugar and the 1 tsp cinnamon together in small bowl. Roll out dough to 18″×10″ rectangle. Spread apple butter over dough then sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture over apple butter. Roll from long end to long end (as rolling, lift up and over the filling so filling is not pushed off the dough), pinch seam.  Cut into 12 1½-inch rounds (I use thread, place under dough, cross ends over and pull quickly through dough), put in sprayed 13″×9″ pan.  Cover and let rise until doubled. Bake in preheated 350° oven for 20-30 minutes.  Cool slightly and spread with sweet roll glaze.

Sweet Roll Glaze:
2 Tbl butter, melted
3/4 cup powdered sugar
milk

Stir powdered sugar into melted butter, add milk to make desired spreading consistency.
