Breakfast Dough

  1. Heat the milk in a microwave safe container where the temp measures between 105-110 (about 20-30 seconds) Add the yeast and whisk and allow to stand 5 minutes till activated. In a stand mixer, combine the flour, salt, and sugar and mix well. Add the yeast mixture and eggs and with a dough hook allow to knead for 1-2 minutes. Add the soft butter and orange zest and knead the dough on medium low speed till a smooth and elastic dough is formed.
  2. Grease a bowl and and place the dough in the bowl. Cover and allow to rise at room temperature till doubled (about an hour).
  3. Punch down the dough and rest 5 minutes. Place on a lightly floured surface and roll into a large rectangle where the dough is about 1/4″ thin.
  4. Combine the butter and orange zest and mix till combined and smooth. Spread a thin layer all over the dough. Sprinkle with sugar all across the dough.
  5. Spread a thin layer of the strawberry jam on top of the butter mixture.
  6. Roll the dough up, starting with the long ends to obtain a long cylinder roll. Trim off the ends about 1″.
  7. Place in a greased 13×9 baking dish in rows of three. Cover and allow to rise about 45 min to an hour.
  8. Once the rolls are risen, preheat oven to 350.
  9. Bake rolls about 18-20 minutes till very lightly browned on the edges. While the rolls are baking go ahead and make the icing to have it ready.
  10. Allow to cool 10-15 min and glaze the top with the icing.
  1. In a bowl, mix the soft butter and cream cheese till creamy. Add in the zest and remaining ingredients. Whisk till a smooth consistency is reached. Glaze the rolls placing a generous about of glaze on each one. Allow the glaze to harden about 15-20 minutes or enjoy immediately.
Recipe Notes

After rolls are baked, cooled, and glazed.  Place them individually on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper and freeze till frozen.  Wrap individually in saran wrap and place all rolls into a freezer bag.

When ready to eat, unwrap frozen rolls and allow to come to room temperature and pop into the microwave about 15-20 seconds.
