Peach Roll Swirls

Here’s a wonderful twist to the classic cinnamon roll.

Becky Low shares her recipes for Peach Roll Swirs.

¼ cup lukewarm water
½ tablespoon active dry yeast
4 tablespoons sugar, divided
1 egg, slightly beaten
½ cup sour cream, divided
5 tablespoons softened butter, divided
¼ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups flour, more or less
7 tablespoons peach jam, divided
1 cup sliced or chopped peaches, drained
¼-½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Stir yeast into warm water to dissolve and it begins to form a head.

Whisk together 2-tablespoons sugar, egg, ¼-cup sour cream, 1-tablespoon butter and the salt. Add yeast and stir; beat in 1-cup flour until smooth. Gradually stir in enough more flour to make a soft dough that may be kneaded. Turn dough out on a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Place dough in a clean buttered bowl, cover with a clean cloth or loosely with plastic wrap and allow to rise until double in bulk. Remove wrap from bowl and knead out excess air.

On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 12×15 rectangle. Spread with 1-tablespoon softened butter; spread with 3-tablespoons peach jam to within 1-inch of opposite long side. Sprinkle lightly with pumpkin pie spice. Arrange chopped peaches over top, leaving 3 inches from opposite side. Roll peaches inside dough, jelly roll style. Pinch edge to seal. Cut into 12 slices and place on butter 9×13 baking sheet or pan. Lightly cover and allow to raise while oven preheats (about 20-25 minutes). Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake approximately 20 minutes or until lightly browned and cooked through. NOTE: Alternate method, roll dough into a 12-inch circle; spread with butter and jam as directed above; cut into 12 wedges. Place peach slice at the wide end of each wedge and roll inside, crescent roll style. Bake as directed above.

While rolls are baking combine ¼-cup peach jam, ¼-cup sour cream, ¼-cup butter, 2-tablespoons sugar in small saucepan. Over medium heat, stirring constantly, bring to a boil, boil 1-2 minutes or until thick and starts to run in a sheet off the spoon. Remove from heat and drizzle/brush over.
