Overnight Strawberry Cream Cheese Rolls
 
Serves: 1 dozen
Ingredients
  • Dough:
  • ½ cup warm water
  • 2 tsp instant yeast
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ½ cup milk
  • ⅓ cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 4¼- 4¾ cups flour
  • Filling:
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • ¾ cup strawberry jam
  • 1 cup finely diced strawberries
  • Icing:
  • ⅓ cup reserved cream cheese mixture
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tsp milk
  • splash of vanilla
Instructions
  1. Combine warm water, yeast and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat in milk, melted butter, salt, eggs, and 1 cup of the flour. Beat till smooth. Add enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead till smooth.
  2. Let dough rest for 5 minutes while you prepare the filling.
  3. Beat cream cheese till soft and fluffy. Add ¾ cup powdered sugar and beat till smooth. SET ASIDE ABOUT ⅓ CUP OF FILLING. In another small bowl, combine the jam and diced strawberries.
  4. Roll out dough on a greased counter top to a rectangle about 10x15". Spread on the cream cheese mixture, then the berries. Roll up and pinch the edge to seal.
  5. Cut log into 12 slices and place in a well greased 9x13" pan. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and place in the fridge.
  6. Add the ½ cup of powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla to the reserved cream cheese mixture. Beat till smooth, adding enough milk to get a thin glaze. Then place icing in a ziplock bag in the fridge.
  7. Let rolls chill in the refrigerator for 8-10 hours or overnight.
  8. Remove rolls and bag of icing from the fridge. Place the rolls in a warm spot and let them rise till doubled (about an hour.)
  9. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes, or till done in the middle. You may need to cover them with foil to prevent over-browning.
  10. Cut a corner in the ziplock bag and glaze rolls while still warm.

After you make your 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. You will be setting aside some of the cream cheese filling to make a glaze later, so don’t forget!

Next cut 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.
