Peach Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

  1. Prepare the dough as directed in the basic sweet yeast dough recipe. While raising, brown the butter and let cool.
  2. Stir together the brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Mix a few tablespoons of the brown sugar mixture into the finely diced peaches. Set aside.
  3. Split the dough in half and roll each half into a 15 by 12 inch rectangle. Spread 4 tablespoons of browned butter onto each half of the dough, leave a 1 inch strip clear on one of the long ends. (reserve the last 2 tablespoons of butter for the glaze).
  4. Sprinkle with the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture. Spread the diced peaches on the dough, leaving behind any excess juices.
  5. Roll up tightly from one of the long edges. Pinch to seal the seam and cut each log into 10 equal pieces. Place ¾ inch apart in a greased pan. Cover and let rise until double. Preheat oven to 375 F. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
  6. To make the glaze. Stir the powdered sugar together with the reserved brown butter and just enough warm milk to make a smooth glaze.
  7. Spread over slightly warm rolls. They are best enjoyed warm.

I love the pairing of brown butter and peach – check out these cupcakes and this milkshake too!

I’ve wanted to try a brown butter peach sweet roll for a while. My first attempt was delicious, but I left them in the oven too long and they browned a little too much, so I decided weren’t pretty enough for pictures.

Darn, I had to make them again. It’s a hard life over here, right? Trust me, no one was complaining. So, I made them a second time with a few tweaks and they were amazing.

Peach filled cinnamon rolls are a sure win with everyone!

  1. Sheena Hunter says

    Small typo in the last step of the recipe. I think you want to stir powdered sugar with the warm milk to make the glaze. Whoops!

  2. Natasha says

    Just wondering where the 2 tablespoons of browned butter reserved for the glaze come in? They’re not in the instructions. Are they just stirred in with the powdered sugar and milk? Thank you!

  3. Phyllis Collett says

    Nowhere in your recipe have you mentioned the necessity of slicing the rolled and filled dough into (how many?) pieces. Someone who has never made anything similar might bake the two long rolls and then wonder, “Where are the buns?”

      Phyllis – Thank you for catching that. I made a quick update and dropped it in the instructions. You should be good to go now.
