  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 15 min.
  • Makes
    10 servings


  • 10 frozen bread dough dinner rolls, thawed
  • 3-1/2 teaspoons currant jelly, divided
  • 1 teaspoon mint jelly, divided
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons butter, melted
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract


  • Place on roll in the center of a greased baking sheet. Shape six rolls into ovals; place around center roll, forming a flower. For stem, roll one of the remaining rolls into a 5-in. rope; place rope touching the flower. Shape remaining rolls into leaves; arrange on each side of stem. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • With the end of a wood spoon handle, make an indentation in the center of each petal and flower center; fill with about 1/4 teaspoon currant jelly. Make an indentation in the center of each leaf; fill with about 1/4 teaspoon mint jelly.
  • Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully remove from pan to a wire rack. Fill indentations with remaining jelly. In a small bowl, whisk the confectioners' sugar, milk, butter and extract; drizzle over warm sweet rolls.
