Don’t Wait To Make Cherry Sweet Rolls

Cinnamon rolls are something that I make pretty regularly at home for the kids, but I usually just make the ones that you can buy in the store.

I know it’s taking the easy way out, but I don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen usually. I like to spend my free time doing other things besides cooking. I know that there are a lot of people out there that enjoy cooking and baking, but I am not one of the people that got that gene or passion or whatever you want to call it. When my kids went to spend the night at a friend’s house, they kept talking to me about how their friend’s mom made them some cinnamon rolls for breakfast and she didn’t take them out of the package like I did. That made me feel just a tad bit guilty.

That meant that I had to go to the internet and see what kind of recipe I could find, because cook books were non-existent at my house. I found this cherry sweet roll recipe on Inside BruCrew Life, and I felt like I had hit the jackpot.

This was going to be way better than the sweet rolls that they had at their friend’s house, because there were cherries in them!

Don’t Wait To Make Cherry Sweet Rolls

Prep time 15 mins; Cook time 20 mins

Makes 8 rolls


  • For the Rolls:
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 1/2 cups Gold Medal flour
  • 1/4 cup Domino sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 Tablespoons butter, melted & divided
  • 1 cup cherry preserves
  • For the Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 Tablespoon melted butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Butter 10 inch pie plate with 1 Tablespoon butter.
  2. Pour the lemon juice in a measuring cup and add the milk. Let sit for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Create a well in the center and pour in the milk mixture and 2 Tablespoons melted butter. Use a fork to stir it until a soft dough forms.
  5. Place the dough on a flour lined table and knead 5-6 times to work a little flour into the sticky dough. Do not over knead or add too much flour or your rolls will be harder.
  6. Gently press the dough into a 10x14 rectangle. Make sure to keep flour under the dough to keep it from sticking.
  7. Spoon the cherry preserves onto the dough and spread out leaving a 1 inch border all around the dough. Roll up gently. If the dough sticks, use a butter knife to gently loosen it and to push flour under the roll.
  8. Cut the ends off each side of the roll, then cut the log into 8 even rolls. Place in the buttered dish. Drizzle the remaining 1 Tablespoon melted butter over the rolls. Bake for 20 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes.
  9. Whisk together the glaze ingredients, then pour it on top of the warm rolls. Let sit for another 5 minutes, then serve warm.
