Raspberry Swirl Sweet Rolls Recipe
If your Valentine’s Day breakfast is more on-the-run than snuggled in bed, then grab-and-go-sweet rolls are worth the effort. Forget the ready-made dough and take some time to create your own from scratch. Then fill with the fruit of your choice. The recipe calls for raspberries but if those aren’t your thing, go for another kind of berries, cherries or a mixture of a few. Make the dough ahead and bake them up fresh in the morning, or make the rolls ahead, freeze and thaw as needed. Get the recipe: Food and Wine
