Rosie Makes Fruit And Berry Sweet Rolls.

Rosie has two little Hawthornelets home right now
and let's just say they have healthy appetites,
as in my grocery bill has more than doubled.

I enjoy cooking for them 
and they enjoy the occasional sweets I make.

Today, I'm making fruit and berry sweet rolls with a vanilla drizzle.

For the rolls:
1 stick unsalted butter
1 cup water
4 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 pkg. yeast
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1 egg

For the filling:
6 TB unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup strawberries
1/2 cup peaches
zest of one lemon

For the icing:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 TB+ cream
1/2 tsp vanilla

In a small saucepan, melt butter in water over low heat.

In a mixer with a dough hook,
combine 2 cups flour with the sugar, yeast, and salt.
Add warm water and butter mixture.
Mix until combined.
Add in egg and continue to mix.

Add in remaining flour, 1/4 cup at a time,
until dough balls up and clears the sides of the bowl.
Knead, until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.

Place dough in buttered bowl and let rise until doubled.
Turn out onto lightly floured surface,
knead, and let rest 10 minutes.

Divide dough in half.
Roll each half into a large rectangle about 1/4-inch thick.
Spread one half with 3 TB melted butter
and sprinkle with half of sugar, half of berries, and half of zest.

Starting at the long end,
roll up dough tightly into a long log.
Slice into 1-inch rounds.
Place rounds on baking dish.
Repeat with other half.

Let rise until double.

Heat oven to 375°.

Bake rolls about 20 minutes, until golden brown.

For the icing,
whisk powdered sugar, cream, and vanilla.
Drizzle over top.

I like my action shots!

Very nice, pliable dough.

Let it rise.

Form into ball.

Roll into rectangles 1/4-inch thick.

Sugar, blueberries, strawberries, and peaches, melted butter, and lemon.

Brush each half of dough with melted butter.

Add the fruit.

Sprinkle with sugar.

Roll up.


Into buttered baking dishes.

Let rise again.

And bake.

Drizzle icing.

Just another way to use
 the wonderful berries and fruits in season.
Please enjoy.
