These are perfect when you want something that's a little more light and refreshing, and are also pretty simple to make after you take care of the dough (which isn't hard to do). Just use a good quality jam for the filling and doctor it up a bit with some cinnamon. Bring on the fresh strawberries, roll up, slice and bake, and viola! Perfect breakfast, after school snack, or dessert!
Heat milk in small saucepan til warm. Mix in the butter until melted. Let cool to lukewarm.
In a large bowl combine 2 1/4 cup flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Mix well.
Stir in egg and 1/4 cup water. Mix well. Stir in the milk mixture until dough forms.
Stir in another cup of flour. When dough comes together, flip onto a lightly floured surface and knead til smooth.
Return the dough ball to the bowl, cover with a damp towel, and let rest for 10 minutes.
Roll out dough into a 15"×10" rectangle. Spread the strawberry jam all over the dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon, then evenly cover with the chopped strawberries.
Roll up the dough and pinch the seam to seal. Cut into 12 equal size rolls. They should be about 1 1/2 inch thick slices.
Place rolls cut side up in a greased 11"×13" baking dish. Cover and let rise until doubled (30 mins). While waiting preheat oven to 375F.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
