  • Electric Mixer


Activating yeast:

  • 1/4 cup hot tap water 100F-110F
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast

Sweet dough:

  • 1/2 cup cooled melted butter
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4-1/2 cups bread flour


  • 12 ounce can Solo Cherry Cake and Pastry filling

Cherry Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar sifted
  • 1/4 cup cherry preserves
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

White Icing:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar sifted
  • 1 tablespoon milk


Activate Yeast:

  • Stir together the yeast, sugar and water in a measuring cup and let rest five-ten minutes to get bubbling away.
  • Add the activated yeast plus the rest of the dough ingredients to a kitchen aid mixer, at first mixing with a paddle to combine.
  • Then use the dough hook and knead for five minutes.
  • Turn the dough out into an oiled metal bowl and cover with plastic.


  • Proof dough at 80 degrees F. for 90 minutes.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured silpat and pat out with your fingers to a 10x13-inch rectangle.
  • Spread the dough with the cherry filling, leaving a little bit of the long edge dry.
  • Roll up the dough and pinch the seam closed.
  • Use a bench cutter or sharp knife to cut the dough into ten sections.
  • Lift dough slices with the bench cutter and flip into a 10x13 baking pan (which has been sprayed with nonstick spray or lightly greased), gently nudging the dough into a round shape if needed.
  • Cover the pan with plastic and proof/ give a second rise for 45 minutes.
  • About 15-20 minutes into the last rise, start preheating your oven to 350F.


  • After the rise is finished, bake the rolls for 45 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Glazing:
  • Five to ten minutes before they come out of the oven, stir together the cherry glaze.
  • Brush this over the tops of the hot rolls and let them absorb that for thirty minutes.
  • Stir together the white icing and drizzle over the top- no more waiting needed.
