  • Rolls:
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • Filling:
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, softened to room temperature
  • 3/4 cup raspberry jam
  • Glaze:
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 Tablespoons milk


  1. Mix yeast, sugar, eggs, water, butter and salt together in a large bowl, all at once. Add 4 cups of all-purpose flour. Mix well with a spoon, cover bowl with plastic wrap and allow dough to rise 4-6 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. Do not knead the dough. Roll out dough into a long, thin rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Spread on softened butter. Spread raspberry jam in an even layer and tightly roll into a jellyroll shape, starting at the long end of the dough. Use a string or floss to cut dough into 1-inch pieces and place into a greased 9x13-inch baking pan (I placed 15 rolls in a 9x13-inch pan so the rolls were touching). Cover and let raise an additional 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Whisk together glaze ingredients drizzle over baked rolls.

  1. These look great! If I were to make the dough the night before, what do I do in the morning? Im guessing allow to come to room temperature and then let it rise? Just want to make sure. yeast dough intimidates me a little. Lol
