These raspberry sweet rolls take full advantage of raspberry season! 

You know how I love to use produce fresh out of the garden. Right now the raspberries are producing like crazy. They are a bit late this year due to the cool rainy spring we had. Better late than never, is what I always say.

I try to eat and use as many fresh raspberries as possible, but I also love to freeze raspberries.

We use frozen raspberries all year long in raspberry scones, raspberry muffins, raspberry almond cake...the list goes on and on. Yep, raspberries are one of my favorites.

My newest recipe is Raspberry Sweet Rolls and they are delicious!

This recipe uses the same dough I use in my cinnamon rolls and apricot sweet rolls. It’s a pretty versatile dough. I think you could also make blueberry sweet rolls and apple cinnamon sweet rolls….the list just goes on and on!
