Today's post is focusing on the pink/red/fruit combo! How fun would it be to make these Valentine's Day Raspberry Rolls for your sweetheart or kiddos this February 14th? This is Amber, back visiting from Dessert Now, Dinner Later! Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays to play with food for! The pinks and reds, fruit and chocolate. Oh yeah! Today's post is focusing on the pink/red/fruit combo! How fun would it be to make these Valentine's Day Raspberry Rolls for your sweetheart or kiddos this February 14th?Today's post is focusing on the pink/red/fruit combo! How fun would it be to make these Valentine's Day Raspberry Rolls for your sweetheart or kiddos this February 14th?This recipe is maybe an intermediate skill level, because it's slightly tricky to get the fruit rolled up and individual rolls cut and shaped before it starts getting messy, but that's why I'm sharing this tutorial. To make it easier for you to make a special Valentine's Day treat! The ingredients are pretty simple. A loaf of Rhodes White Bread thawed to room temperature. A bag of frozen raspberries, and some sugar and cornstarch. After the rolls are baked you only need powdered sugar, milk, and a few raspberries for the glaze.Valentine's Day Raspberry RollsStart by rolling the white bread into a large rectangle about 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick. KEEP THE RASPBERRIES IN THE FREEZER UNTIL READY FOR THIS NEXT STEP. Toss the raspberries with the sugar and cornstarch; sprinkle evenly over the rectangle. Once the berries start to thaw and macerate with the sugar, it gets messy, so be ready to move fast.Valentine's Day Raspberry RollsNext, tuck as many raspberries as you can into one of the long edges and start rolling towards the center; then stop at the center.Valentine's Day Raspberry RollsRepeat with the other long edge, tucking lots of berries into it as you roll towards the center. The berries help make the bumps of the heart, so you don't want very many in the middle where it meets (which will create the bottom/point of the heart), you want more in the edge as you roll towards the center.Valentine's Day Raspberry RollsThe next step is to cut the log you just created into 12 equal pieces. I use dental floss and criss cross it to cut and not smash the rolls. You may need a little flour on your floss if it starts sticking to the rolls. Cut the log in half, then each half into half, and then each of those pieces into thirds. Place 6 rolls each into two round cake pans that have been lightly greased.Valentine's Day Raspberry RollsPoint the edges at the bottom so the rolls look like hearts. Cover and let rest for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. The dough won't rise very much because of the frozen berries, but the berries will release a LOT of juices. The raspberry juices will fill most of the bottom of the cake pans.Today's post is focusing on the pink/red/fruit combo!

Ingredients

1 loaf Rhodes White Bread, thawed
1 (10 to 12 oz) bag FROZEN raspberries (save 6 berries for glaze)
¼ cup plus 2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp cornstarch

Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp milk
6 raspberries, thawed

Instructions

Roll the thawed loaf of bread into a large rectangle about 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick.  KEEP THE RASPBERRIES IN THE FREEZER UNTIL READY FOR THIS NEXT STEP.  Toss the raspberries with the sugar and cornstarch; sprinkle evenly over the rectangle.  Once the berries start to thaw and macerate with the sugar, it gets messy, so be ready to move fast.

Next, tuck as many raspberries as you can into one of the long edges and start rolling towards the center; then stop at the center.

Repeat with the other long edge, tucking lots of berries into it as you roll towards the center. The berries help make the bumps of the heart, so you don't want very many in the middle where it meets (which will create the bottom/point of the heart), you want more in the edge as you roll towards the center.

The next step is to cut the log you just created into 12 equal pieces. I use dental floss and criss cross it to cut and not smash the rolls.  You may need a little flour on your floss if it starts sticking to the rolls.  Cut the log in half, then each half into half, and then each of those pieces into thirds.  Place 6 rolls each into two round cake pans that have been lightly greased.

Point the edges at the bottom so the rolls look like hearts.  Cover and let rest for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.  The dough won't rise very much because of the frozen berries, but the berries will release a LOT of juices.  The raspberry juices will fill most of the bottom of the cake pans.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 to 30 minutes until the dough is cooked and the filling is bubbling.  Allow rolls to cool slightly, then mix up the glaze ingredients in a food processor or whisk them together in a bowl and mash berries with a fork. Spoon glaze over the edges of the rolls.  These Raspberry Rolls are best served warm or heated up slightly.  Enjoy!
