To make filled sweet buns, instead of cinnamon sugar:
Instead of using the cinnamon/sugar filling that comes with the mix and the butter that you provide, substitute a pastry or a pie filling. The rolls on this page were made with our professional pie fillings. Each filling comes in a two-pound squeeze pack. Each two pound pack will make two batches of sweet rolls.
Shown are rolls made with the cinnamon sugar filling that comes with the mix and those filled with raspberry pastry filling.
Tips for Best Results:
- Spray the insides of the paper liners with a nonstick cooking spray so that the sweet buns don't stick to the liners.
- After rolling the dough to a rough rectangle, cut it into six-inch wide strips before rolling the filling inside. Thinly rolled dough and six-inch wide strips will make for small-diameter log that can be cute into slices to fit into a muffin cup.
- Cut your roll into slices about 3/4-inch wide.
- Let them rise until puffy. In a cool kitchen, that might take awhile. In a warm kitchen, an hour or less.
The tendency is to put too much dough in each muffin cup. Regular muffin cups are small and this dough will rise to three times the size. The slices should only be 3/4-inch wide and as big around as the bottom of the muffin cup. From each mix, you should make 30 to 32 little sweet rolls in regular cups and 16 to 18 in jumbo cups.
