 Ingredients List

  • Amaretto Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 3 tablespoons Amaretto Liquore
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cherry extract
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks
  • 4 oz cream cheese, (half block) softened
  • Almond Dessert Rolls Dough
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar, + 2 tablespoons, divided
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 .75 oz fast rise yeast packet
  • 3 cups Flour, + 1/2 cup as needed
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • For Rolls Center
  • 18oz jar of Cherry Preserve
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chunks
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, + additional for garnish (optional)


Start making frosting by combining Amaretto, butter, water, sugar, and extracts in a medium saucepan and heat over medium heat. Stir until butter is melted, and mixture comes to a bubble. Let bubble for about a minute.

Add dark chocolate chips and stir until chocolate has completely melted and sauce is smooth. Set aside, and let cool to room temperature, for about an hour while you make dough.

Start on dough by combining butter, 2 tbsp. sugar, milk and water in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in microwave for 30 second intervals until butter is almost melted completely. Stir mixture to help butter to finish melting and set aside to allow mixture to cool for about 5 minutes.

After mixture has cooled slightly, add yeast and stir to incorporate into butter mixture. Set aside.

In mixer, add 3 cups flour and remaining 1/4 cup sugar.

Seriously, what is it about falling sugar that I love so much?

Stir yeast mixture and add to flour mixture.

Also add beaten eggs and extracts. Mix on low speed until dough starts to come together. Slowly add remaining 1/2 cup flour as needed if dough seem too sticky. Just until dough starts to ball up.
Lightly flour flat surface and roll dough onto flour. Lightly flour top of dough and hands. Knead dough for a couple minutes until dough feels evenly textured throughout.
Place dough in a buttered or greased bowl and roll dough to coat surface. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and place in a warm place to rise for about an hour and a half or until dough has doubled in size
