Cinnamon rolls can be intimidating, especially if you haven’t made them before. Don’t you worry. This recipe is perfect for those that want it quick and easy.

Ingredients
  

Dough Ingredients:

  • 3 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp instant yeast
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup butter softened

Filling Ingredients:

  • 1 can Lucky Leaf Strawberry Pie Filling 21 ounce
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar

Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 4 ounce cream cheese softened
  • 3 Tablespoons butter softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon zest one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions
 

  • To make the dough: In a small saucepan over medium low heat add the milk and butter. Stir until the butter has melted and remove from heat. Let stand until luke warm temperature.
  • In a large mixing bowl whisk together 2 ¼ cups flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Add to the stand mixer with dough hook attached. (You can also make this by hand, just knead until smooth once all of the ingredients are added.) Add the egg and water and mix until just starting to combine. Slowly add in the milk mixture and 1 cup of flour until the dough starts to form and become smooth. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a large 9x15 square. About 1/4-½ inch thick. Spread strawberry pie filling evenly on top of the dough. In a small bowl combine the cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle on top of the strawberry filling. Roll up the 15 inch side into a log and pinch the seams. Cut into 9-12 slices depending on how thick you want your cinnamon rolls. Place in a greased 9x13 inch pan and cover with a damp cloth and let rise for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake for 30 minutes or until just golden brown on the tops.
  • To make the glaze: Beat together the cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar until smooth. Add the half and half, vanilla, lemon juice and lemon zest until combined. Frost over warm cinnamon rolls and enjoy!

  1. I planned on making this for my cotton harvesters but my husband’s cousin is allergic to cinnamon. I wonder if it will still taste good without the cinnamon?

  2. Just tried to make these…looks like some errors in the recipe like 21 oz of pie filling and 1/2 tsp of sugar. Impossible to roll up 21 oz of pie filling into a roll – it’s a complete mess. Way too much filling. This is basically strawberry cobbler. A half a teaspoon of sugar is a pinch…why bother. I’d love to see a video of someone trying to make this.

  3. Wouldn’t make these again. Ever try rolling up a sloppy pie filling with larger bits of fruit? Well, it’s a mess. I am experienced in making rolls, but the sloppiness and difficulties in cutting the slices was not worth it. I’d use the wonderful pie filling for something else, but never for this recipe again.

    1. Dayna,
      I rolled mine similar to doing a jelly roll but used parchment paper. Once it was rolled I put it in the freezer for about an hour then cut it. Let it rise a bit longer than you normally would. 🙂 less mess

  4. I made this this morning for breakfast making a few alterations useing what I had and it was amazing. I used the apple pie filling chopped up. Almond milk, and splenda. Ff cream cheese and I cnt believe its not butter ligh o and apple pie spice for the glaze instead of the lemon juice. Made 18 for 112, calories. Ty so much for this recipe. Its so versatile.

  5. we don’t have that pie filling in the UK, can you recommend a recipient for a pie filling or an alternative please xx
