Raspberry Sweet Rolls-soft and sweet yeast rolls filled with raspberries and topped with cream cheese frosting. These sweet rolls are perfect for breakfast or brunch.
My dad’s cinnamon rolls are hands down the BEST cinnamon rolls in the universe. I shared my dad’s recipe on our blog years and years ago when my dad was probably the only one reading our blog. The post includes pictures of my dad making cinnamon rolls and the recipe. My dad didn’t care at the time because he didn’t think anyone would actually read the post and see his picture, but now his cinnamon roll recipe is the most popular recipe on our site. My dad gets a little embarrassed that his photo is all over the internet.
I have thought about taking new pictures for the post, they aren’t the greatest and probably should be updated to show you how amazing the cinnamon rolls are, but I love those memories with my dad in the kitchen.
When my dad came to visit us a few months ago, I asked if we could make his famous cinnamon rolls, but with a twist. I wanted to make Raspberry Sweet Rolls. My dad said sure, but he made me promise I would only take pictures of the rolls. He is kind of camera shy:)
We used my dad’s recipe for the base of the rolls because it is PERFECTION! You will never eat a softer, fluffier, melt in your mouth sweet roll. The dough is like satin.
To mix things up, we added raspberries to the filling. The raspberries are juicy and ooze out a little, but that is ok. They make a pretty mess:)
We topped the raspberry sweet rolls with a generous amount of cream cheese frosting. I added a little lemon zest to brighten up the rolls.
The raspberry sweet rolls were heavenly! I loved the fruity raspberry filling. And my dad, the cinnamon roll master, approved too!
My dad is coming to visit us for Christmas and I know he will be making his famous cinnamon rolls for Christmas brunch. It is a family tradition. I am going to put in a request for Raspberry Sweet Rolls too. They are the perfect Christmas morning treat! The raspberries make them so pretty and festive…and it is the holidays. It is ok to indulge. I am going to eat a cinnamon roll and raspberry sweet roll. Merry Christmas to me:)
Add these Raspberry Sweet Rolls to your Christmas brunch menu. Your friends and family will love them! And don’t forget to try my dad’s world famous cinnamon rolls! They are the BEST!
