I made some sweet rolls a couple months back that were extra special. My sweet little bun in my oven turned me on to the idea of filling sweet bread with strawberry jam and cheesecake filling. Then rolling them into a log and slicing them in cinnamon roll style and baking them into the sweet goodness that she is.
