  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

For the Filling:

  • 8 ounces soft cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup strawberry jam
  • 1 cup chopped strawberries

For the Cake Icing:

  • 1/3 cup of the reserved cream cheese blend
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons milk
  • A splash of vanilla


1. Prepare the Dough:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine warm water, yeast, and sugar. Add salt, eggs, melted butter, and 1 cup of flour. Mix until smooth.
  • Incorporate the remaining flour gradually, working the dough until smooth.
  • Allow the dough to rest for 5 minutes.

2. Make the Cream Cheese Filling:

  • Use a mixer to soften cream cheese, then add 3/4 cup powdered sugar. Beat until smooth. Reserve about 1/3 cup of the mixture.

3. Create the Strawberry Filling:

  • In a separate bowl, combine strawberry jam and chopped strawberries.

4. Assemble the Rolls:

  • Roll out the dough on a greased surface into a 10x15-inch square.
  • Spread the reserved cream cheese mixture on the dough, followed by the strawberry filling. Pinch the edges and roll it up.
  • Cut the rolled log into 12 slices and place them in a greased 9x13-inch pan. Refrigerate and cover with plastic wrap.

5. Prepare the Cake Icing:

  • To the reserved cream cheese blend, add milk, vanilla, and 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Beat until smooth. Transfer the icing to a ziplock bag and refrigerate.

6. Chill and Rise:

  • Refrigerate the rolls for 8 to 10 hours or overnight.
  • Remove the rolls and frosting from the fridge. Let the rolls rise in a warm place until doubled in size (approximately 1 hour).

7. Bake:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and bake the rolls for 30 to 35 minutes or until set in the middle. Cover with foil if needed to prevent excessive browning.

8. Frosting:
