How To Make braided sweet roll

  • 1
    Unroll Cresent Rolls into a sheet. Press edges to seal. Cut strips on each side for folding. Spread 1/2 cup Red Pum Jelly down the middle of the dough. Sprinkle a half cup of Grapenuts on top of jelly. Sprinkle lemon zest on top of that. Then sprinkle raisins on top of other ingredients. Using strips braid the bread.Place on lighly greased cookie sheet. It would be easier to make this if you put the bread on the cookie sheet and work from there. Bake at 375 until brown. Mix 2 cup of powered sugar, butter and vanilla, add milk to make a thin consistency and drizzle over Braided Roll. Cool and enjoy.
