Spice Up your Holidays with These Cheesy Breads

The smells of warm bread and the tantalizing aroma of fresh cinnamon rolls, is there anything better on a cold winter day? The answer is “yes” of course, as there’s one crucial and tasty ingredient missing: Wisconsin Cheese. Adding cheese to these drool-worthy breads makes them tastier and infuses some much-needed excitement into the usual holiday traditions.

So, sit back, relax, and discover why you should make our Snowflake Cinnamon Rolls or trying our Spicy Pull-Apart Christmas Tree Bread this year, because, frankly, these recipes are sure to delight your taste buds and make your special holiday moments even more magical.

Snowflake Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon rolls are already the best thing ever, but we always felt like there was a little extra something missing. That thing? Mascarpone cheese. Mascarpone is the “je ne sais quoi” that adds another layer of complexity and richness that takes the humble cinnamon roll from a regular holiday treat and transforms it into something truly memorable.

Our Snowflake Cinnamon Rolls are loaded with Tiramisu Mascarpone, a classic mascarpone mixed it with spices and a hint of ground espresso beans to give it the flavor of tiramisu. If you’ve never had the pleasure of trying this uniquely-flavored cheese, well you’re in for a treat. 

Recipe Tips

Work with one pastry sheet at a time while keeping the remaining pastry refrigerated. By keeping the pastry cold you’ll keep those delicate buttery layers intact.

Avoid overbeating the mascarpone when making the frosting. Working the frosting for too long can result in a lumpy texture.

If you can’t find BelGioioso Tiramisu Mascarpone you can use unflavored mascarpone and add brown sugar and cinnamon as directed by the recipe.

Spicy Pull-Apart Christmas Tree Bread

Nothing says comfort like warm, cheesy bread. This spicy, pull-apart Christmas tree bread is a surefire crowd-pleaser. With cheese in the bread and in the dipping sauce, you know it’s going to be a hit.

Each bite of bread is loaded with Weyauwega Star Dairy Monterey Jack with Jalapeno Pepper cheese, giving you classic comfort food vibes with a little bit of zing.

Then, next level the spicy experience with the roasted red pepper dipping sauce, featuring Sartori Classic Parmesan cheese mixed in. Whether your guests are young or old, everyone will enjoy grabbing a salty, savory, garlicky, cheesy piece. Added bonus: no utensils needed to dig into this appetizer. What’s a better gift to yourself than no dishes?

Recipe Tips

Prepare the butter mixture up to three days in advance. Cover and store in the refrigerator.

On the day-of, cut the butter mixture into small pieces. Let it stand at room temperature for 5-10 minutes or until softened. Spread on bread and bake.
