Cream Cheese Filled Brioche Sweet Rolls with Maple & Brown Butter Glaze are perfect for holiday baking and sharing!
This is a sponsored post in partnership with Red Star Yeast. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Holiday baking is one of my very favorite things. When Red Star Yeast asked if I would like to bake up some holiday goodies, of course I jumped at the chance!
A while back, I tried my hand at making savory brioche rolls and they turned out so fabulous that I had to try a sweet roll version. The beauty of this recipe is that it will make enough to enjoy and share!
Who wouldn't love to have a pan of fresh baked sweet rolls from their neighbor? My Peach Pie Cinnamon Rolls and these Coconut Cream Pie Sweet Rolls are also favorites for baking and sharing! Don't miss out on these Blackberry Pie Sweet Rolls or Walnut Cinnamon Twists for a weekend brunch!
These rolls are pillowy soft and the cream cheese filling makes them just the slightest bit decadent and the brown butter and maple glaze just pushes them over the top to amazing!

I'm going to make apple honey pecan sticky buns and the cream cheese filled brioche rolls.
I'll get out the flour right now. These look great.

So...you combined brioche, sweet rolls and cream cheese? That might be the most amazing combination ever. I'd eat about 20 🙂

so many tasty looking treats! I am going to attempt the Apple Cinnamon Streusel Pull Apart Bread 🙂
I am not going to stop thinking about Cream Cheese Filled Brioche Sweet Rolls until I make them and eat a bunch.
Your recipe looks delicious! And I'd also like to make the Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Knots!

Amazing rolls. At 7000ft I didn't make any adjustments and they turned out wonderful. Thank you for the great recipe. Yum;)
I am so glad you enjoyed them! Thanks or letting me know!
Made these by substituting ground flax bomb "eggs" for the 5 eggs in the dough, kept the real egg in the filing, and turned out great at 5200'. Needed about 30 min in the oven. Soft and delicious for days after!
Glad you enjoyed them!
