HOW TO MAKE STRAWBERRY CINNAMON ROLLS WITH LEMON CREAM CHEESE GLAZE

To make the Dough:

Step 1: Add the milk and butter in a small saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring until the butter has melted. Then, remove from the heat and allow to sit until lukewarm.

Step 2: Whisk 21/4 cups flour with yeast, sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add in the egg and water. Mix well until just beginning to combine. Gradually add in the milk mixture and a cup of flour until it forms a dough and smooth. You can even do this without a stand mixer, knead with your hands after all the ingredients are added, then, set aside to rest for at least 10 minutes.

Step 3: Roll the dough on a lightly floured surface. Make a large 9 x 15-inch square with about 1/4-1/2-inch thickness.

Step 4: Evenly spread the strawberry pie filling over the dough.

Step 5: Mix the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Then, sprinkle over the strawberry filling.

Step 6: Roll into a log the 15-inch side. Pinch the seams to secure. Then, slice into 9 to 12 pieces depending on how thick you prefer the cinnamon rolls. Transfer the rolls in a greased 9 x 13-inch pan. Let them rise for at least 30 minutes making sure to cover first with a damp cloth.

Step 7: Meanwhile, prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees.

Step 8: Place the rolls in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes or until the tops are just golden brown.

To make the Glaze:

Step 1: In a bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar until smooth.

Step 2: Add in the half and half, vanilla, lemon juice, and zest. Beat until incorporated.

Step 3: When the rolls are ready, frost them while warm.

Step 4: Serve and enjoy!
