Ingredients

Units Scale

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 large or 3 average sized peaches)
  • 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Allow to cool to a warm, but not hot temperature (a little warmer than a baby’s bath water). This takes 20-30 minutes.
  5. In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and 1/2 tsp sugar in 1/3 cup warm water.
  6. Let stand until foamy. About 5 minutes.
  7. Pour the foamy yeast, 2 eggs, and 2 cups of the flour into the mixing bowl.
  8. Mix on low just until everything is mixed together.
  9. Then beat on medium high for 5 minutes. Don’t skimp on the time. You must beat it for 5 minutes.
  10. Add the remaining 1 1/2 cups flour. Mix until incorporated.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. While the dough is rising for a second time, spray a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set it aside.
  14. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter, sugar and vanilla together until smooth and lump free. Set aside.
  15. Peel, slice and dice enough peaches to measure 2 cups of peach pieces and reserve a peach half for the icing.
  16. Dump the risen dough out onto a 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.
  17. Roll out into a rectangle that is roughly 20×14 inches. Spread the cream cheese filling over the top of the rolled out dough.
  18. Dump the peach pieces in a ziploc bag with the cornstarch and shake well.
  19. Evenly distribute them  over the cream cheese filling.
  20. Roll up jelly roll style and slice into 12 one and a half inch thick slices.  And, yes, this can be a bit messy and it works best to slice them with dental floss.
  21. Place the slices in a 9x13 baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
  22. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled and while your oven preheats to 350 degrees.
  23. Bake your sweet rolls in the preheated oven to 25-35 minutes.
  24. While they are baking, puree roughly 1/2  a peach giving you about 1/2 cup of peach puree. 
  25. Beat in the powdered sugar until it is smooth and makes a pretty peach icing.
  26. Drizzle the icing over warm but not hot sweet rolls.
  27. Serve warm or cool before serving.  Store in the fridge.

Notes

  • Be sure to use ripe peaches for this recipe.  Under-ripe ones resist having the skins removed and don't taste good.
  • Once again, remember this is a batter dough.  It is not going to come together in a ball like bread dough.  See the pictures included in the recipe post.
  • To remove peach skins easily do the following. 
  • Bring a a small but deep pot of water to a boil.
  • You'll need enough boiling water to cover the entire peach.
  • Place your peaches in the boiling water making sure they are completely submerged.
  • A pasta spoon or utensil is the easiest way to put in and take them out of the water.
  • Boil for 30-45 seconds.
  • Remove the hot peaches and immediately submerge them in ice water leaving them in the ice water for 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove a peach from the cold water and gently rub your thumb across the skin.
  • The skin should easily slide off.
