PB&J Biscuit Roll-Up
Makes 7
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¾ cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • ¾ cup cold whole milk
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ⅓ cup strawberry jam
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1½ cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 7 teaspoons strawberry jam
  • Garnish: chopped peanuts
For rolls:
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt; stir in butter until coated. Using a pastry blender or 2 forks, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly and butter is pea-size. Gradually stir in milk with a fork until dry ingredients are moistened.
  2. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface, and lightly knead until dough comes together, 5 to 6 times. Shape dough into a 5×3-inch rectangle. Wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 14×9-inch rectangle about ¼ inch thick. Spread peanut butter onto dough, leaving a ¼-inch border on one short side.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together jam and cornstarch until smooth; spread onto peanut butter, leaving a ½ inch border around sides of dough. Starting at short side of dough without border, roll up dough into a log, pinching seam to seal. Cut roll into 7 (1¼-inch-thick) slices.
  5. Spray a 7-well cast-iron mini cake pan with baking spray with flour. Place slices, cut side up, in prepared pan. Freeze for 15 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 400°.
  7. Bake until golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan, and let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
For topping:
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together confectioners’ sugar, milk, and peanut butter until smooth; spread onto rolls. Top rolls with jam; gently swirl together. Garnish with peanuts, if desired. Serve warm.
KITCHEN TIP-Any flavor jam you like can be used in these rolls; do not use natural peanut butter that separates.
