Scale

Ingredients

ROLL DOUGH

  • 1/4 Cup Butter
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Cup Scalded Milk
  • 1 Tbs. Active Dry Yeast
  • 1/2 tsp Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup Warm Water
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 3 1/2 Cups Flour, divided

CREAM CHEESE FILLING

  • 8 oz Cream Cheese (softened)
  • 1/4 Cup Butter (softened)
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

PEACH FILLING

  • 2 Cups Fresh Peaches peeled, sliced and diced.
  • 2 Tbs. Cornstarch

Peach Glaze:

  • 1/2 Cup Peach Puree
  • 2 Cups Powdered Sugar

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (you can make these with hand beaters, too) place the 1/4 cup of butter, 1 tsp Salt, and 1/4 cup of sugar.
  2. In a small saucepan, scald the 1 cup of milk. To scald milk, heat the milk over medium heat high to nearly boiling. Remove from the heat and pour over the contents of the mixing bowl.
  3. Allow to cool to a warm, but not hot temperature (a little warmer than a baby’s bath water). This takes 20-30 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and 1/2 tsp sugar in 1/3 cup warm water. Let stand until foamy. About 5 minutes.
  5. Pour the foamy yeast, 2 eggs, and 2 cups of the flour into the mixing bowl. Mix on low just until everything is mixed together. Then beat on medium high for 5 minutes. Don’t skimp on the time. You must beat it for 5 minutes.
  6. Add the remaining 1 1/2 cups flour. Mix until incorporated. This is a batter dough so the dough is going to be sticky and gooey, it will not be a ball of dough.  Cover the dough and let rise until doubled. This will take an hour to an hour and a half.
  7. Punch down the dough, recover, and let rise a second time until doubled. This will only time 1/2 the time of the first rise.
  8. While the dough is finished rising for a second time, spray a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and mix up the cream cheese filling by beating all the cream cheese filling ingredients together until smooth.
  9. Peel, slice and dice enough peaches to measure 2 cups of peach pieces.  Dump them in a ziploc bag with the cornstarch and shake well.
  10. Dump the risen dough out onto a generously floured surface. Knead gently just enough so the dough is not sticky. This won’t take a lot of flour. Remember this is a soft dough and should not be a stiff ball of dough like bread dough would be.
  11. Roll out into a rectangle that is roughly 20×14 inches. Spread the cream cheese filling over the top of the rolled out dough.
  12. Evenly distribute the peach pieces over the cream cheese filling.
  13. Roll up jelly roll style and slice into 12 one and a half inch thick slices.  And, yes, this is a bit messy.
  14. Place the slices in a 9×13 baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
  15. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled and while your oven preheats to 350 degrees.
  16. Bake your sweet rolls in the preheated oven to 25-35 minutes.
  17. While they are baking, puree roughly 1/2  a peach giving you about 1/2 cup of peach puree.  Beat in the powdered sugar until it is smooth and makes a pretty peach glaze.
  18. Cool the sweet rolls for 10 minutes before glazing.
  19. Serve warm or cool before serving.  Store in the fridge.
