Brown Sugar Yellow Peach Sweet Rolls



For rolls

1/2 cup of warm water
1/4 ounce pack of yeast or 2 1/4 tsp.
1/2 cup of warm milk
1/4 cup of sugar
1/3 cup of butter, melted
1 tsp. of salt
1 whole egg
3 1/2 cups of flour & more for surface

For filling

2 yellow peaches, diced
1 cup of pecans, crushed
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 tsp. of cinnamon
2 tbsp. of butter

For glaze

2/3 cup of butter, cubed
1/2 cup of brown sugar & 1 tsp. of cinnamon, combined
1 cup of powdered sugar


Step 1

Dissolve yeast into hot water. While yeast is dissolving combine sugar melted butter, salt, and egg into a large bowl. Mix in two cups of flour and then mix in yeast + water mixture. Stir in warm milk to dough mixture. Mix in remaining flour until dough is easy to handle. The dough should be elastic but not sticky. Sprinkle flour over a large surface and knead for 5-10 minutes. Place in a large well-greased bowl and cover with two clean dish towels without touching the dough. Place in a dry area for an hour to double in size.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 350°F. While dough is rising, heat a medium sauté pan over medium-low heat and melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Add in peaches, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and crushed pecans. Cook for 5-10 minutes or until peaches have softened.

Step 3

Punch down the dough and roll out into a large 15×9 rectangle on a floured surface. Spread evenly with peach pecan mixture, cubed butter, cinnamon sugar mixture, and roll (on the 15 inch side). Cut slices about 1 1/2 inches thick and arrange close together in a greased casserole dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until lightly golden.

Step 4

For the icing, in a large bowl fitted with a hand or standing mixer add in room temp butter, cream cheese, vanilla extract, and salt. Beat for 2-3 minutes. Add in 1 cup of powdered sugar at a time and 1 tablespoon of half & half after every sugar addition. Add in cinnamon and nutmeg last to your taste. Smother onto warm cinnamon rolls!
