Tangy homemade strawberry jam is the star of this soft buttery roll that will melt right in your mouth.
¾ cup whole milk, warmed to 110ºF
2 ¼ teaspoons rapid rise yeast
3 large eggs, room temperature
4 ½ cups all purpose flour
½ cup cornstarch
½ cup granulated sugar
1 ½ teaspoons sea salt
12 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut in 12 slices and room temperature
1 cup strawberry jam (or more if you like!)
1 ½ cups powdered sugar
½ cup butter softened
1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
In a bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, stir together the flour, cornstarch, sugar and salt.
In a small saucepan warm the whole milk to 110 degrees F. Pour the warmed milk into a measuring cup and stir in the instant yeast until it dissolves. Then beat in the eggs.
Turn the stand mixer on the lowest setting and slowly pour the milk mixture into the flour. Increase the speed by 1 and stir until a dough comes together. Add the softened butter a piece at a time, mixing until each piece is incorporated before adding the next piece. Knead the dough on a medium speed for about 10 minutes, or until the dough comes away from the bowl.
Spray a large bowl with cooking spray. On a clean work surface, scrape the dough out of the mixing bowl and shape into a ball by folding each corner into the middle and pressing the dough down in the center. Place the dough ball, seam side down in the greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and place the dough in a warm spot (75 to 80 degrees) to rise for 2 hours or until it doubles in size.
In a medium bowl, beat together the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, heavy cream and salt until smooth.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake the rolls for 35- 40 minutes or until the edges are browned. Spread a half cup of the glaze on the rolls immediately after the rolls come out of the oven. Let the rolls cool slightly, for 10-15 minutes before adding the remainder of the glaze.
After cutting the rolls, cover with plastic wrap and set in the refrigerator overnight. When you are ready to make them let the rolls sit on the counter at room temperature for 1 hour. Then follow the remaining instructions.
