Raspberry Rolls add a taste of raspberry to your dessert rolls.  If you love raspberry and you love dessert rolls—these are for you! I was so excited the first time that I had these rolls. I could not wait to share them with my friends and family.

Wouldn’t you just love to receive a plate of raspberry rolls to eat on a special occasion? Better yet, just because someone is thinking of you and they really care about you. You do not have to have a special occasion to make some raspberry rolls for someone that you love.

These raspberry rolls bring back memories of Sunday afternoons growing up on the farm. We were usually out working on the farm on the other six days of the week, but on Sunday we just had to do the chores that had to be done, like milking the cows, irrigating, and feeding the livestock.

Quite often on Sunday afternoon we would make a nice batch of dessert rolls. We usually made cinnamon rolls, but if we had had this recipe for raspberry rolls, we would have made it too. What a nice memory of Sunday afternoon together with the family making dessert rolls and enjoying them with the family and friends. I hope that you make these rolls and make some memories of your own!

How I love making amazing food for my family. Sometimes once in awhile I make something and my family doesn’t comment and so I ask them what did you think. I have one family member that will make this funny noise.

I do not even know how to spell it! It is like eh! Short and sweet and you know that he will not be sad if you never make it again. Ha ha! I sure love my family and I am glad that they feel like they can be honest with me!

Then there is times when my taste buds are off and I think man, I do not think that I am ever going to make this recipe again and my family will tell me how wonderful something tastes. I remember when I was growing up, my mom wasn’t sure how much salt to add from day to day.

She said “your dad said that yesterday this needed more salt and today he said it needs less salt”! I now find myself being the same way. Some days I want sweet and some days I want more sweets! Ha Ha!

Okay some days I want more salty, but every day I could really enjoy Raspberry Rolls!  I know that you and your family will too if you give them a try. I cannot wait until my kids learn to make these and one day they show up with a big plate just for me to eat all by myself!!!

Tips and Tricks For Raspberry Rolls:

  • When baking, make sure that your yeast, baking powder and baking soda are not too old, otherwise your desserts do not turn out as fluffy.
  • I used freezer jam and these turned out great!
  • If you like your frosting nice and thick, make sure that the rolls have cooled down completely, other wise the frosting may run off.
