I’m kind of famous for my cinnamon rolls. There is a gorgeous old-fashioned clay oven at the family’s ranch and every time we plan to fire up the oven I’m asked to make a few batches of my famous rolls. These Roles de Fresa y Requesón have been one of the biggest hits with our family and friends. Lightly salted Mexican requesón and sweet strawberry jam wrapped in a tender, flaky dough baked until golden then topped with a delicious cream cheese frosting. I usually make my dough from scratch, but to make this recipe even easier I’ve used refrigerated crescent dough.
Have fun with this recipe by trying different flavored jams. Some of my favorites include guava and apricot.
