Green Cherry Sweet Rolls

Teresa

Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2021

Green Cherry Sweet Rolls were my faves this year. Truly. These amazing sweet rolls were so mouthwateringly good that I would have eaten all of them if I could. Fortunately, my brain returned to sanity and my husband and I split one. Then I gave the rest of them out to neighbors up and down our street and even backyard neighbors!

Follow Me On Instagram!

Paradise Fruit Company sent me a lot of different candied fruits to use in recipes. I received two containers of Candied Green Cherries. I used one of them in my Green Cherry Cookies. I used the other container in these drool-worthy sweet rolls. And drool-worthy they were! I used almond flavoring in the filling and the icing to bump up the flavors and boy, these were so, so good.

I started with a half batch of one of my favorite bread/rolls recipes. It’s a little sweeter almost like Hawaiian rolls. Then I added a filling (without cinnamon) and finally I made the icing the vintage way my mom used to make it. She boiled her powdered sugar icing before adding it to cinnamon rolls. I don’t know if anyone still does that anymore. Mom always said it would boil out the excess starch. One of these days I’m going to have to get around to making her delicious cinnamon rolls. It’s been decades since I’ve made them and time to dig out that great recipe.

I can’t recommend Green Cherry Sweet Rolls enough for this holiday season. Certainly I recommend it for Christmas or New Year’s Day. But if you’re home any time during the holidays, this is a great recipe to crank out for your family. They’re good the next day too. If you want to drool over breakfast, this is the recipe that will do it!

Roll up jelly roll fashion. Cut the dough in two-inch slices. Place cut-side-up in a greased baking dish or cast iron skillet. Cover with tea towel and place in a warm place to rise about an hour. (I usually heat my oven to 100 degrees then turn off oven. I allow the bread to rise in the warmed oven. If the oven cools too much, I’ll heat it again up to 100 degrees until the sweet rolls have been raising about an hour).

DOUGH:

  • 3 cups bread flour NOT all-purpose flour

  • 1/3 cup very warm water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs beaten

FILLING:

  • 2/3 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (1/2 stick)
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 8 oz. container green cherries chopped

ICING:

  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter (1/4 cup)
  • 2 1/3 to 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar as needed
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 1 to 2 tbsp. milk or as needed

Instructions
 

DOUGH:

  • Heat milk over low to medium heat until butter melts.
  • Add to sugar in large bowl and stir to dissolve sugar.
  • Cool slightly.
  • Then add beaten eggs.
  • Stir in 1 cup flour with a wooden spoon.
  • Dissolve yeast in hot water.
  • Add to above mixture.
  • Continue to add flour one cup at a time, stirring after each addition.
  • Slide onto floured board and roll and knead.
  • Rest for 20 minutes on floured board under bowl filled with very hot water in warm place.
  • Punch and knead again about 30 seconds.
  • Roll dough into a large rectangle.
  • Spread filling ingredients over top of dough (see below).
  • Roll dough up jelly-roll style.
  • Slice dough into two-inch pieces.
  • Place in a greased, rectangular baking dish.
  • Cover with tea towel and let rise 1 hour in warm place.
  • Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Remove from oven place on rack.
  • Pour icing over top.
  • Allow rolls to cool and icing to set before serving.

FILLING:

  • Melt butter.
  • Add brown sugar, almond extract and combine.
  • Spread over top of rolled rectangle-shaped dough.
  • Chop green cherries and sprinkle over top of filling mixture.
  • Roll up jelly-roll style.
  • Cut in two-inch pieces and place in a greased, rectangular baking dish.
  • Cover with a tea towel (not a terry-cloth towel) and allow rolls to raise one hour in a warm place.

ICING:

  • Melt butter over low to medium heat.

  • Boil and stir for about three to five minutes over low heat.
  • Whisk continuously; don’t allow the mixture to scorch.
  • Slowly pour hot icing over top of all the sweet rolls, covering generously.
  • Allow icing to dry before serving.

Notes

NOTE: I used bread machine yeast because that is what I had on hand.
NOTE: These are whopper-sized rolls. If you want to roll the dough out thinner, you can make smaller ones.
NOTE: To raise the bread, I usually heat my oven to 100 degrees then turn off oven. Cover the rolls with a tea towel (not terry cloth) and allow the bread to rise in the warmed oven. If the oven cools too much, I'll heat it again up to 100 degrees until the sweet rolls have been raising about an hour. Then remove the tea towel; turn on the oven and bake as directed above.
NOTE: Terry cloth will stick to and adhere to the dough. You will have a hard time peeling it out of the rolls and sometimes it will even stick to the dough and you can't remove it! Use flat-weaved teal towels instead to cover the dough while rising.
NOTE: These are monster-sized sweet rolls. If you want less calories, you can make them smaller or cut each in half.

  • Melt butter.
  • Add brown sugar, almond extract and combine.
  • Spread over top of rolled rectangle-shaped dough.
  • Chop green cherries and sprinkle over top of filling mixture.
  • Roll up jelly-roll style.
  • Cut in two-inch pieces and place in a greased, rectangular baking dish.
  • Cover with a tea towel (not a terry-cloth towel) and allow rolls to raise one hour in a warm place.
  • If desired, brush with one tablespoon of melted butter.
  • Bake as directed above.

ICING:

  • Melt butter over low to medium heat.
  • Stir in milk.
  • Then whisk in powdered sugar, one cup at a time, until all is worked in.
  • If you want the icing a little thicker, add powdered sugar in 1/3 cup increments until you get the desired consistency.
  • Stir in almond extract; heat over low heat until icing boils.
  • Boil and stir for about three to five minutes over low heat.
  • Whisk continuously; don’t allow the mixture to scorch.
  • Slowly pour hot icing over top of all the sweet rolls, covering generously.
  • Allow icing to dry before serving.

Notes

NOTE: I used bread machine yeast because that is what I had on hand.
NOTE: These are whopper-sized rolls. If you want to roll the dough out thinner, you can make smaller ones.
NOTE: To raise the bread, I usually heat my oven to 100 degrees then turn off oven. Cover the rolls with a tea towel (not terry cloth) and allow the bread to rise in the warmed oven. If the oven cools too much, I'll heat it again up to 100 degrees until the sweet rolls have been raising about an hour. Then remove the tea towel; turn on the oven and bake as directed above.
NOTE: Terry cloth will stick to and adhere to the dough. You will have a hard time peeling it out of the rolls and sometimes it will even stick to the dough and you can't remove it! Use flat-weaved teal towels instead to cover the dough while rising.
NOTE: These are monster-sized sweet rolls. If you want less calories, you can make them smaller or cut each in half.
