Sweet Buns:
  • 6 molasses yeast rolls or Hawaiian rolls
  • 4 tablespoons butter (softened)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon flaky sea salt
  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • For the Filling: In a large bowl add the cream cheese, cinnamon, powdered sugar, vanilla, walnuts, golden raisins, orange zest and salt and mix to combine. Remove to a piping bag fitted with a pastry tip.
  • For the Buns: Stick the pastry tip into the side of the roll and pipe 2 tablespoons of filling into the center. Repeat with the remaining rolls and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, add the butter and honey and mix to combine. Brush the rolls with butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds and flaky sea salt. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes until the filling is warm and the sesame seeds are lightly toasted.
  • Remove from the oven and serve.
