Strawberry Rhubarb Almond Rolls #BrunchWeek - Wholistic Woman

For today’s recipe I’m sharing another “once in awhile” treat. I rarely bake any more, but was inspired by a recipe for strawberry rolls with cream cheese frosting found on the Red Star Yeast website. I decided to make it more “spring” by using strawberry rhubarb jam (store bought, but if you’d like to try your hand at homemade this recipe is one of my favorites) instead of just plain strawberry and using almond extract instead of vanilla. (Thanks Nielsen-Massey for the extracts!). DH was super impressed, as were his coworkers who were the lucky recipients of the leftovers.
