Rose Rolls Recipe

These eye-catching cherry-filled rolls make any breakfast or coffee break special. They freeze very well...just thaw and reheat a few minutes before serving.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. + cooling YIELD:24 servings


  • 1 cup cubed peeled potatoes
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 egg
  • 5-1/4 to 5-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cherry pie filling
  • Vanilla Glaze


  • 1. In a large saucepan, bring potatoes and water to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain potatoes, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid; cool liquid to 110°-115°. Mash potatoes; set aside to cool to 110°-115°.
  • 2. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add the mashed potatoes, cooking liquid, sugar, butter, salt, egg and 1-1/2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Do not knead. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 24 pieces. Gently roll each into a 12-in. rope. Holding one end of rope, loosely wrap dough, forming a coil. Tuck end under; pinch to seal. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 4. With thumb, make a 1-in. indentation in center of each coil. Fill with cherry pie filling. Bake at 400° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Drizzle with Vanilla Glaze. Yield: 2 dozen.
