Strawberry Swirl Sweet Rolls

Dough:

1 c. warm water

3/4 c. milk

1/4 c. sugar

1/4 c. melted unsalted butter

2 T. regular yeast

pinch of salt

2 eggs

5 1/2 c. flour


Filling:

4 T. melted unsalted butter

1 c. strawberry jam


Frosting:

3 c. powdered sugar

2 t. almond extract

1/4 c. milk, plus more to thin out if needed


1.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Grease three 8x8 baking pans.

2.  In a stand mixer or in a large bowl with a hand held mixer combine the warm water, milk, sugar, butter and yeast.  Let sit for 5 minutes.

3.  Add in the eggs, salt and flour and mix for 10 minutes.  Then let rest for another 10 minutes.

4.  Roll the dough out over a floured large surface to 1/4 of an inch thickness into a large rectangle. Spread on the melted butter, then the jam.

5.  Carefully roll up and using a serrated knife cut into 27 slices, placing the rolls in the greased dishes.

6.  Bake for 20 minutes.

7.  In a bowl combine the powdered sugar, almond extract and milk.  If the frosting is too thick {I prefer mine a bit thinner}, add more milk one tablespoon at a time.

8.  Spread the frosting over the warm rolls.  Serve warm or cover and heat up again later.
