Cream Cheese Filled Brioche Sweet Rolls with Maple & Brown Butter Glaze are perfect for holiday baking and sharing!
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! Plus they are working this holiday season to support Stop Hunger Now!
A few facts about Stop Hunger Now
- Stop Hunger Now meals contain 23 essential vitamins and minerals, each feeds 6 people.
- In 2013, roughly 125,000 volunteers worldwide packaged more than 42 million meals for recipients in 30 countries.
- In 2013, Stop Hunger Now sent more than $9 million worth of donated goods (including antibiotics, birthing kits, water filters, school desks, projectors, fabric and solar lights)
- Poor nutrition causes nearly half (45%) of deaths in children under five – 3.1 million children each year.
- One in every eight people on earth goes to bed hungry each night.
- Nearly one billion people worldwide suffer from chronic hunger.
- Every day, more than 25,000 people die abroad of hunger and hunger-related causes.
- Every 10 seconds a child dies because they are severely underweight or lack essential nutrients.
- 842 million people in the world do not have enough to eat.
I love that Stop Hunger Now focuses on engaging volunteers in a hands-on activity to produce meals that are used strategically to support development programs, while at the same time fostering the growth of a movement to end hunger by educating those volunteers about the need and giving them an opportunity to take action.
So in support of this effort this holiday season I will be baking double batches to share. Isn’t that what it’s all about?
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 are also a favorite for baking and sharing!
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!
