As promised I share with you these decadent gooey Dulce de Leche Sweet Rolls! And in every soft layer you will find pieces of candied pecans and topped with a coffee glaze that is out of this world! This has been on my bucket list for the longest time. Dulce de Leche is creamy and tastes similar to caramel sauce, however there are subtle differences between the two. While caramel sauce is made with sugar, water and heavy cream; Dulce de Leche is made with sweetened condensed milk. Caramel sauce only takes a few minutes to make, but it takes a few hours for sweetened condensed milk to simmer into a creamy caramelized sauce aka Dulce de Leche. While I would have loved to make my own Dulce de Leche, I was in a pinch for time and picked up a jar that was ready to go. Sometimes giving yourself a break is a good thing. I did make time to spice up some pecans with some sugar and spice that truly made these rolls special. The inspiration for these rolls and especially the coffee glaze is inspired by Yvette at Muy Bueno Cookbook. From my kitchen to yours, I hope 2023 will be a year filled with good health, happy times and delicious food to be shared with those you love!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your families. I look forward to hearing about your holiday traditions and delicious food with all the trimmings. One of my favorite things to make around the holidays is sweet rolls. Every year I make a batch of Brioche Cinnamon Rolls as well as something new that we haven’t tried before. Lets face it, sweet rolls are my weakness and the holidays just wouldn’t be the same without a delicious sweet roll on Christmas morning. This year I made two new versions. First up is a sweet roll filled with sweetened cream cheese and raspberries topped with a lemon glaze. It all starts with my favorite brioche dough that never fails. These delicate soft layers almost melt in your mouth while the filling and glaze contrast the sweet and tart flavors. It’s the perfect roll to go with your morning coffee or tea. That said, I think every new version of sweet roll is perfect. I can’t choose, they are all my favorite! While you contemplate these sweet rolls, I hope to tempt you with my next post which features a decadent sweet roll with candied pecans! Happy New Year!
