Servings: 16



  • 1 cup Warm Water
  • 1 tablespoon Active Dry Yeast
  • 2 tablespoons Butter softened
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 3 and 1/4 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt


  • 3/4 Cup Raspberry Preserves
  • 1/4 Cup Butter softened


  • 1/2 Cup Margarine or Butter softened
  • 2 Oz Cream Cheese softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 3 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 5 tablespoons Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon Raspberry Preserves



  • Place all dough ingredients (except 1/4 cup flour) into the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix on low until combined.
  • Turn mixer up and knead dough for 5-10 minutes, adding in the remaining 1/4 cup of flour (if you live in a humid climate you may need up to an additional 1/4 cup of flour). Knead until smooth and elastic.
  • Turn dough out onto floured surface and form into a ball. Cover loosely with towel and allow to rise 60-90 minutes, until dough has doubled in size. (If you live in a dry climate, spray the dough with nonstick spray and cover loosely with plastic wrap before covering with a towel.)
  • Roll dough out on a floured surface to a 12x18 inch rectangle. Mix softened butter with raspberry preserves and spread across dough. Roll dough into a log, and cut off each end. Mark 12 equal pieces on the log and cut with a very sharp knife or piece of thread. Place pieces in a greased baking dish.
  • Let rise 20-30 minutes until puffed and just touching. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake 20-25 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. Let cool for about 15 minutes before frosting.


  • Beat together all of the frosting ingredients, then smooth frosting over warm rolls and serve immediately.
