With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Peach Sweet Rolls

Peach Sweet Rolls

Tender yeast dough filled with sweet peaches and dripping with glaze

I tried a variation of the Raspberry Swirl Sweet Rolls I made recently by substituting peaches.  Not as much gooeyness as when using berries but still delicious!  Next time I might first spread a layer of jam and then top with the peaches. Or, just add more peaches :)
Keep an eye on the dough as it its rising.  I got carried away doing yard work and came in to find this...  the dough rose quickly, even popping through the plastic wrap!
I scooped it all back together, rolled it out, added the peaches, rolled it up, sliced and added to the pan for a second rise.
The rolls freeze well and are delicious sliced and toasted.
(sometimes the glaze drips to the bottom of my toaster oven but it's worth the mess)
Peach Sweet Rolls
recipe slightly adapted from Food.com 


1 cup milk
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt (I used Kosher)
4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, (I needed an additional 1/4 cup)

One 10-ounce package Frozen peaches, slightly thawed and cut into chunks
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch

3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 tablespoons heavy cream

In a small saucepan, warm the milk over moderately low heat until it's 95°. Pour the warm milk into the bowl of a standing electric mixer fitted with the dough hook and stir in the sugar and yeast. Let stand until the yeast is foamy, about 5 minutes. Add the softened butter, eggs, grated lemon zest and sea salt. Add the flour and beat at medium speed until a soft dough forms, about 3 minutes. Increase the speed to medium-high and beat until the dough is soft and supple, about 10 minutes longer.

Scrape the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it with your hands 2 or 3 times. Form the dough into a ball and transfer it to a lightly buttered bowl. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let stand in a warm place until doubled in bulk, 1 to 2 hours.

Line the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with parchment paper, allowing the paper to extend up the short sides. Butter the paper and sides of the pan. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and, using a rolling pin, roll it into a 10-by-24-inch rectangle.

In a medium bowl, toss the peaches with the sugar and cornstarch. Spread the peach filling evenly over the dough. Tightly roll up the dough to form a 24-inch-long log. Working quickly, cut the log into quarters. Cut each quarter into 4 slices and arrange them in the baking pan,
cut sides up. Scrape any berries and juice from the work surface into the baking pan between the rolls. Cover the rolls and let them rise in a warm place until they are puffy and have filled the baking pan, about 2 hours. (Mine rose in 1 hour)

Preheat the oven to 400°. (I baked at 375 degrees) Bake the rolls for about 25-30 minutes, until they are golden. Transfer the pan to a rack to cool for 30 minutes.

In a small bowl, whisk the confectioners' sugar with the butter and heavy cream until the glaze is thick and spreadable.

Invert the rolls onto the rack and peel off the parchment paper. Invert the rolls onto a platter. Dollop glaze over each roll and spread with an offset spatula. Serve warm or at room temperature.
