Strawberry Cheesecake Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

While this isn’t a complicated recipe, it has a few steps. But like I always tell my boys – if there are multiple steps to make it, there can be multiple hands to help.

Not only will everyone be a part of making the homemade cinnamon rolls, but they’ll also get to help understand the process and pride that comes with baking! Someone can help make the day, while others can be a part of the frosting and the glaze.

In our house, we love to make dishes and meals that everyone can enjoy, and when everyone is a part of it, the food always tastes that much better!

How do I keep cinnamon rolls from going stale?

Keeping cinnamon rolls fresh and flavorful can be a challenge, especially if you’ve made them ahead of time or bought them from the store.

Keeping them in an airtight container is the best way to prevent them from going stale. Be sure to use one large enough for the rolls to fit snugly and with enough space to close the lid.

Additionally, adding a slice of bread inside the container can help lock in moisture and extend its shelf life.

Lastly, storing cinnamon rolls in the refrigerator will help ensure they remain moist and fragrant for extended periods; however, they should be consumed within two days after being placed in the refrigerator.

With these simple steps, your cinnamon rolls should stay delicious!

This Strawberry Cheesecake Cinnamon Rolls Recipe is one that everyone will love! Gooey cinnamon rolls topped with strawberry glaze!



  • 2 tablespoons yeast
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 4 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Filling Ingredients:

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ⅓ cup softened butter

Cheesecake Topping Ingredients:

  • 1-ounce cream cheese
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream

Frosting Ingredients:

  • 4 ounces of cream cheese
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon strawberry extract


  • Crushed Graham Crackers
  • Strawberry Glaze ( you can make your own by blending 5 strawberries and adding 1 tablespoon sugar)


  1. Add the yeast and 1 T of white sugar to a bowl of lukewarm water. Let the yeast activate for 15 minutes.
  2. In a different bowl mix the dry ingredients for the dough. (flour, sugar, salt) Whisk and then add the yeast mixture, egg, egg yolk, and melted butter. Mix this until the dough forms.
  3. Knead the dough on a clean surface for 8-10 minutes or until a smooth dough ball forms.
  4. Place the dough into a floured bowl and cover it with a clean damp towel. Let the dough rest for 1 hour and 20 minutes to 2 hours at a time. The dough should double in size.
  5. To make the cheesecake mixture and brown sugar mixture, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, and sugar in a bowl. Then add the egg and tablespoon of heavy whipping cream and whisk to create a thinner mixture.
  6. In a different bowl, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon. Add 1/3 cup of the softened butter to the brown sugar mixture to make a thicker paste.
  7. Once the dough is done rising and resting, punch it down in the middle. Add the dough to a clean surface and roll the dough out to be 9X11 inches big and about 1/4-1/2 inch thick.
  8. Spread the dough surface with the brown sugar and cinnamon paste evenly.
  9. Roll the dough tightly into a log. Cut into rolls that are about 2 1/2 inches thick, to make 6 cinnamon rolls.
  10. Place the rolls into a deep 9X11-inch pan. Add parchment paper first to avoid sticking.
  11. Let the rolls rest for 30 minutes, covered by a clean damp towel.
  12. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  13. Before adding the pan to the oven, add a big tablespoon of the cheesecake mixture over each of the rolls.
  14. Put the pan in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes. You want them to be lightly golden so that a soft and gooey cinnamon roll comes out of the oven.
  15. To make the cream cheese frosting, blend the cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and strawberry extracts - plus the powdered sugar.
  16. As soon as the rolls are taken out of the oven, coat them in the frosting.
  17. To add a strawberry glaze, blend a handful of strawberries, strain the seeds, and then add 1 tablespoon of white sugar.
  18. Add some crushed graham crackers on top and you're ready to serve!
