Very Berry Cinnamon Rolls Recipe
For the Dough:
- 3/4 cup of milk
- 4 tablespoons of butter, cut into chunks
- 3 1/4 - 3 1/2 cups of Turkey Bread Flour, divided
- 1 (.25 ounce) package of instant or 'rapid rise' yeast
- 1/4 cup of white sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1 egg
For the Filling:
- 2 cups of mixed berry jam
- 1 cup of sugar
- To make the cinnamon roll dough, place milk and 4 tablespoons of butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat on high for about 1 minute 30 seconds (the butter should be mostly melted, but do not boiled). Stir and set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl whisk together 2 cups of flour, yeast, white sugar, and salt. When the milk mixture has cooled to warm (not hot) add it to the flour mixture along with the egg.
- Beat until well combined, about 1 minute. Add in the rest of the flour a few tablespoons at a time, being careful not to add too much. The dough should be soft and slightly tacky. Knead the dough for 5 minutes and let rise in a warm area for 30 minutes.
- When the dough has finished rising, roll it out into a rectangle about 12 x 14 inches. Spread the jam over the surface and use your fingers or the back of a spoon to gently spread around.
- Sprinkle the sugar onto the jam before rolling the dough, starting from the longer side of the rectangle; pinch the edges closed.
- Score the roll into 12 equal pieces and then cut it into rolls. Place in a 9 x 13 pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Cover the pan with a clean towel and let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. When the rolls have finished rising, bake for 15-20 minutes or until light golden brown.
- Remove the berry cinnamon rolls from the oven and let cool before consuming. If desired, drizzle with a cream cheese frosting, fresh fruit, or a fruit syrup.
