Strawberry Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

If you like a little added something special, juicy strawberries are a great way to dress up breakfast. Serve with our classic Sausage, Egg and Cheese Casserole or a Crescent Roll Breakfast Pizza to round out the meal.

Taking inspiration from our Canned Cinnamon Rolls with Heavy Cream, we love how a sweet crunchy cinnamon topping bakes on strawberries to enhance rich cinnamon roll with a soft center. We often enjoy fruit with breakfast, but baking it into a package of canned cinnamon rolls creates a whole new experience.  

The heavy cream makes the rolls fluffier and the strawberry adds an enjoyable fruity flavor to create a semi homemade recipe for strawberry cream cinnamon rolls.
