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!
