Cinnamon rolls with berry jam

Quick cinnamon rolls kicked up a notch with mixed berry jam and an orange fondant glaze. Recipe submitted by Farmgirl Gourmet.


For the jam scrolls: 
2 1/3 cups self rising flour (or all-purpose flour with 2-3 teaspoons baking powder)
Pinch of salt
1/2 stick butter, chilled, plus 1/2 stick melted
2/3-3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup turbinado sugar (raw sugar)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup mixed berry jam
1 packet True Orange

For the glaze:
1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
2 packets True Orange
1/8 cup warm milk

For the jam scrolls: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, add the flour, salt, and 1/2 stick cold butter, and process until it resembles coarse meal.
  3. Slowly add the milk and pulse until the dough just comes together. Turn out onto a lightly floured board and knead into a supple dough.
  4. Roll the dough ball out into a thin slab. Using a pastry brush, spread the melted butter over the dough. Sprinkle with the raw sugar, cinnamon, 1 packet of True Orange, and jam. Roll slab lengthwise into a long rope.
  5. Cover a small baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the roll into equal small rolls and place them upright against each other on the sheet. They don’t have to fit tightly. Bake the scrolls for approximately 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked on the inside.

For the glaze: 

  1. Sift the powdered sugar into a medium bowl.
  2. Add the True Orange and begin whisking. Slowly add milk until the mixture is thick but pour-able. Drizzle large ribbons of glaze over the scrolls. Allow to set for 5 minutes before eating.
