Strawberry cinnamon rolls have a gooey, sweet filling all wrapped up in the most soft, tender and fluffy dough.
I seem to be on a bit of a strawberry kick lately, so bare with me. Need a special breakfast for you lover on Valentine’s Day? This is it! Who can resist a warm cinnamon roll fresh out of the oven? Not this girl. The addition of gooey strawberries is amazingly delicious! These rolls come out super soft, tender, gooey and get slathered in a thick layer of creamy cream cheese frosting. The perfect indulgent breakfast treat!
Homemade strawberry cinnamon rolls or any homemade cinnamon rolls in general are quite the process but trust me, it’s so worth it! As soon as you take the first bite you’ll know what I’m talking about. You can even prepare these rolls the night before to make the next morning super easy. I used the same sweet roll dough recipe as my favorite cinnamon rolls. Just prepare the recipe up until just before the second rise. When you place the rolls in the pan, you’ll cover the pan with a damp towel and place in the refrigerator over night. In the morning, take them out and place them in a warm environment so they can rise for the second time. Once they are nice and puffy, they’re ready to bake!
The sweet strawberry filling is homemade and it’s super easy. Nothing artificial or fake, just pure strawberry goodness. If you aren’t up to making your own filling, you can absolutely use store-bought strawberry preserves or jam – no judgement here!
In every bite you get the sweet gooeyness of the strawberry filling mixed with with spicy sweet flavors of cinnamon sugar and it’s seriously HEAVENLY. Plus, a generous slather of cream cheese frosting just makes them even better.
