Why a PINK chef's coat?

Simply put, I carry my Dad's legacy with me through my cookbook, cooking and everyday I am writing my food columns, he is always with me. I carry my Mom with me through a silent reminder of her struggle with breast cancer that took her life, as well as the lives of many other women who have dealt with, and are still dealing with, this horrible affliction. Besides, why not pink? It makes a man look good!

Peach Pie Rolls

A great alternative to cinnamon rolls, and with a ton of flavor. Try other fruits and berries in this recipe as well, such as cherries with cherry preserves, strawberries with strawberry preserves.....you get the picture.


For 10 Serving(s)


  • 1 cup warm half and half or milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 (.25-ounce)envelope active dry yeast
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Filling:
  • 1/2 cup peach all fruit, jam or preserves
  • 1 large peach, peeled, pitted and diced small
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Cream Cheese Glaze:
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Peach Pie Rolls Directions

    Add warm milk and sugar to a large bowl, whisking well. Sprinkle yeast over the top and let sit for 10 minutes, until starting to form a froth on top. Add flour, butter, vanilla and salt, stirring with a sturdy wooden spoon until it starts to leave the side of the bowl. You can also use an electric mixer with a hook attachment as well. 
    Cover with a dry towel and let rise in a warm spot for one hour, or until about double in bulk.
    Punch down the dough and roll it out into a rectangle about 14-inches by 8-inches.  
    Spread peach all fruit, followed by diced peaches to within an inch from all sides. 
    In a bowl, blend sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and ginger. Evenly sprinkle over peaches.  Tightly roll up the dough and cut into 12-15 even slices.
    Place on parchment-lined baking pan, or well greased pan, cut-side down, at least an inch apart. Allow to rise until they are 50% larger. Bake at 350-degrees F for 16-18 minutes, or until nicely browned. 
    Meanwhile, make Cream Cheese Glaze by combining all ingredients in a bowl and beat until smooth. 
    When rolls are done, remove from oven and drizzle glaze over the top before serving hot.
