Cream Cheese Filled Brioche Sweet Rolls

Baked, glazed and cooling on the range top.  These will be our dessert this evening.   Rather than make the maple butter to top them with, I made the glaze I use on other types of sweet rolls.  It's just powdered sugar, milk and vanilla.

Cream Cheese Filled Brioche Sweet Rolls 

Serves: 18 rolls
  • 1 cup warm water
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup softened butter

  1. Add warm water, yeast and sugar the bowl of an electric mixer and set aside for about 5 minutes or until yeast starts to bubble. Add ¾ cup softened butter and eggs and beat until combined. Add 1 cup of flour and mix until combined, at salt and continue adding flour until dough starts to pull away from sides of the bowl. Knead of 5 to 7 minutes until dough is smooth.

  7. Cover and allow to rise 15 minutes.
  8. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
