One Hour Peanut Butter Rolls


Have you heard of or had peanut butter rolls? These were a staple as a child and to this day are one of my mom's most requested treats! I actually blogged about them awhile back but though I love my mom's recipe it takes a little more time than I have, which most good recipes do.

I little while ago my sweet friend Elise ran over one of the tastiest homemade cinnamon rolls I have ever sunk my teeth in! It helped that she brought it over straight out of the oven and still warm. Delicious. When I asked if I could have the recipe she directed me to a blog she discovered through Pinterest. The recipe claimed to be for 'one hour cinnamon rolls,' since little to no rising of the dough was necessary. Sounds like my new kind of recipe, I had to try it!

I've been on a huge peanut butter kick for the last few months. Maybe it's because Gabriel doesn't let me eat tree nuts so I over compensate with peanuts? Not quite sure, all I know is that it is one of my new favorite flavors and and I now understand some of my friends' obsession with it. So rather than making 'one hour cinnamon rolls' I decided to make 'one hour peanut butter rolls'.

For the recipe and baking instructions please visit Georgiana's Blog. I made one alteration to her dough recipe and that was rather than using oil I used applesauce, a substitute I always make. Once the dough is made and rolled out, instead of sprinkling buttered dough with cinnamon and sugar before rolling up spread a generous amount of peanut butter onto the rectangle of buttered dough and then sprinkle with sugar.



Cut and bake as she details! I also used a different glaze recipe which you will find here!


Enjoy!

  4. Hi Lena...these look yummy...my mom made peanut butter rolls when I was little...loved them...I was wondering about your applesauce substitution in the dough--I've never tried that in yeast dough. Does it change the consistency/texture? I will have to try that...thanks for sharing this yummy recipe--it's now pinned on my board...smiles...Bev @ Tymes Past

    1. Hi Bev! I haven't made these without the substitute but i imagine that the applesauce makes them a little more sticky which I just dealt with a little more flour when kneading and greasing my hands with crisco. Thanks for the pin! Have a great week!
