Bake my Strawberry Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing for a delicious breakfast treat. It’s the star dish of any breakfast, brunch or weekday treat. Fill your home with the sweet smell of my from-scratch Strawberry Sweet Rolls.
In this Strawberry Cinnamon Rolls recipe, I used fresh diced strawberries, along with cinnamon, melted butter, and granulated sugar. If you are looking to kick up the strawberry flavor in this dish add a thin layer of strawberry jam. It brings more moisture to the cinnamon roll and also makes that strawberry flavor pop.
I omitted it in my recipe at the request of my family. Some days we want a huge pop of strawberry, other days we want a hint. Adjust your recipe according to your family’s preferences.
Cream Cheese Icing
I used 8oz of cream cheese in my cream cheese Icing because my family loves cream cheese. My 6-year-old eats a bagel with cream cheese every morning with her hot chocolate. Every day this girl asks for more and more, I think I’m going to have to start buying this stuff by the gallon. If your family isn’t a huge fan of cream cheese half what the recipe calls for (4oz).
How To Make The Strawberry Cinnamon Rolls Dough
Prepare the dough by starting with browning the butter, starting with this will allow the time the butter needs to cool before mixing it in. I browned my butter and set it aside for about 10 minutes, just before it cooled I added in lukewarm milk. Add all other ingredients and then cover the dough with a heavy kitchen towel (or multiple towels) in a warm spot in your kitchen. Allow time to rest until dough has doubled in size.
Roll the dough into a rectangle that’s about 18 inches x 12 inches on a well-floured flat surface. Brush the dough with 2 Tablespoons of melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Add the diced strawberries generously throughout the dough. Let’s get rolling!
Start rolling the dough, starting from the far side towards you being cautious not to apply too much pressure. When you reach the end make sure to pinch the sides together. Cut the dough into 16 pieces or 8 Large pieces. To make cutting the dough easier start by cutting the dough in half, then proceeding to cut each side in half until you reach the desired amount of pieces.
