I have adapted this recipe from a relative, who is from Bavaria-- just like my mom was. This is similar to Hot Cross Buns, because this is a sweet dough. The difference is that you fill the center with jam. Fresh, out of the oven, these are such a wonderful treat! I love the sweet "crunchiness" of the sugar, at the bottom of each roll. Great childhood memories for me.


cups flour, plus ¼ cup flour (if needed)
¼ cup vanilla sugar*
2 large eggs, room temperature
¾ cup milk, warmed
1 stick unsalted butter, divided)
1 package yeast
9 tsp apricot preserves (or your choice)
For the bottom of the baking pan:
½ stick unsalted butter, melted
¼ cup sugar (to dip unbaked rolls into)
I buy Dr. Oetker Vanilla Sugar, or you can make your own with a vanilla bean pod. Anytime you use a vanilla bean pod, save it and sit it in with a jar of sugar.
