I'm so excited to try this Peanut Butter and Jelly Rolls or make up my own version. Instead of turning it into a loaf incorporated with peanut butter and jelly, have shaped them into rolls, filled with peanut butter and fruit jam.
Have so much fun baking this delicious combo. Actually you can fill with anything including cream or butter. In every bite the rich peanut butter flavor is complimented by delicate sweetness from the jam.
In order to get a perfect strips, have used a pizza cutter. It works like a charm.
PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY ROLLS
Yield : 12 rolls
2 C all purpose flour
1.5 tsp instant yeast
1/2 tsp salt
2 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoon melted butter
3/4 C warm milk
2 tablespoon warm water if required
9 tsp peanut butter
9 tsp jelly or jam
Place flour, yeast, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl.
Gradually add milk to the dry ingredients to form into soft dough. Add extra warm water if needed.
On floured surface, knead dough by hand for 10 minutes until smooth.
Leave to rise in a covered and oiled bowl for 1.5 hours.
Punch down the dough, divide into 12 portions. Roll each portion into rectangle about 12 x 8 cm and 1/2 cm thick.
Place 3/4 tsp peanut butter and 3/4 tsp jelly or jam and cut the bottom part of the dough into 1/2 cm strip.
Roll them up, pinch the seam together on the side and place the rolls onto a baking sheet. Repeat for the balance of the dough. Let the rolls rest for an hour. Towards the end of rising time, preheat oven @ 200C.
Bake the rolls for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. After baking, brush with melted butter. Transfer onto rack to cool.
