Raspberry Cream Cheese Sweet Rolls

If you have never made sweet rolls from scratch this is a great recipe to start with. We especially love to make these for the Holidays. Making this raspberry sweet roll recipe is a nice change from traditional cinnamon rolls.

These soft raspberry rolls are packed with a yummy raspberry filling using frozen raspberries and then topped with a 4 ingredient cream cheese icing. No kneading and incredibly easy!

How To Make Raspberry Sweet Rolls

Here’s an overview of how to make these raspberry rolls. See the recipe card below for more detailed instructions.

  • Start with your water, milk, oil and yeast – let that sit while the yeast bubbles.
  • Slowly beat in eggs and then flour and continue until it starts to form a sticky dough.
  • Leave your dough covered (with a clean kitchen towel) to sit and this is when it does the magical bread thing where it expands to twice it’s size!
  • While the dough is rising, you can smash together your berries, sugar and vanilla.
  • Spread your dough out, spread on the raspberry filling, roll it up, cut into slices (using a sharp knife or dental floss) and bake.

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • In a medium bowl, combine the icing ingredients until creamy. Frost the tops of the baked a cooled raspberry rolls until covered.

Tips and Variations

  • Early Prep: We like to get the dough ready the day before and leave it in the fridge until the next morning.
  • Storing: Store any leftovers covered in a sealed container for up to 3 days.
  • Variations: Sprinkle some lemon zest over the raspberry filling, use fresh raspberries instead of frozen, include some extra crushed raspberries or lemon zest to the cream cheese icing.

For the Rolls:

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • ½ block cream cheese
  • ½ stick butter
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk


  • Whisk together water, milk, sugar, yeast, and vegetable oil in a large bowl for 2-3 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes and yeast will start to bubble.
  • Add in eggs, and With an electric mixer that has a single beater attached, beat in flour a little at a time.
  • Keep beating on a medium speed until your dough pulls away from the sides. It will be sticky but you will see when it comes together. Cover and set in a warm spot for 20 minutes to double in size.
  • While dough is rising, smash together raspberries, sugar, and vanilla.
  • Flour a surface, and roll out dough into a large rectangle. You may want to oil your hands to touch it so it doesn’t stick.
  • Spread a layer of melted butter on your dough, followed by raspberry mixture.
  • Roll up along the long end. (This dough is very fluffy and feels fragile but isn’t going to break) Cut into 6-8 slices.
  • Place in a baking dish, and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
  • While baking beat all frosting ingredients together and set aside.
  • Once fully cooked, spoon a generous amount of frosting onto warm rolls and serve as desired.
