Strawberry Cinnamon Rolls with Lemon Cream Cheese Glaze

by admin


  • 3 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp instant yeast
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ⅓ cup butter, softened
  • 1 (21 oz) can Strawberry Pie Filling
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • 4 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup half and half
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon zest (one lemon)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Prepare the Dough: In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the milk and butter. Stir until the butter has melted, then remove from heat and let it cool until lukewarm. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 2 1/4 cups flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Add the egg and water, then mix until just starting to combine. Slowly pour in the milk mixture and 1 cup of flour, mixing until the dough starts to form and become smooth. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
  2. Roll Out the Dough: On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a large 9×15 square, about 1/4-1/2 inch thick. Spread the strawberry pie filling evenly on top of the dough. In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon and sugar, then sprinkle it over the strawberry filling. Roll up the 15-inch side into a log and pinch the seams. Cut into 9-12 slices and place them in a greased 9×13 inch pan. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise for 30 minutes.
  3. Bake the Rolls: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake the rolls for 30 minutes or until just golden brown on top.
  4. Prepare the Glaze: While the rolls are baking, prepare the glaze. In a small bowl, beat together the cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar until smooth. Add the half and half, vanilla, lemon juice, and lemon zest, and mix until combined.
  5. Glaze and Serve: Drizzle the glaze over the warm cinnamon rolls once they are out of the oven. Allow them to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy the irresistible combination of sweet strawberries, warm cinnamon, and tangy lemon cream cheese glaze!
