Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 8 rolls


  • For the rolls:
  • 500 g (18oz) block of puff pastry
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped in half
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 tbsp light brown sugar
  • For the glaze:
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 200C/400F and line a baking tray.*
  • Place your hulled and halved strawberries into a mini food chopper and blitz until smooth. Add 1tbsp of flour and blitz until mixed. Leave to one side.
  • Lightly flour your work surface and the pastry then roll the pastry out until it's 1/4 inch thick, then using a knife or pizza wheel, trip the edges off until you have a rectangle, around 26 x 40cm.
  • Make sure the longest edge is facing you, so you can roll it and get 8 rolls.
  • Sprinkle 2tbsp sugar over the pastry and spread out with the back of a spoon.
  • Spoon the strawberry filling over the pastry and smooth with the back of a spoon.*
  • Lift the edge of the pastry and fold over, then slowly roll up the pastry until you have lots of swirly layers!
  • Slice into 8 pieces (use a very sharp knife, otherwise they tend to squash).
  • Place on your baking tray with a 2 inch gap between them.
  • Place in the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and flaky. Insert a knife into the very centre and ensure the filling is piping hot.
  • Leave to cool on the baking tray completely.
  • Once cool, make the glaze. Place the icing sugar, milk and vanilla into a medium bowl and whisk until smooth.
  • Drizzle or spoon over cooled rolls and serve.
  • Strawberry rolls will keep in an airtight container, in the fridge, for 2 days.


*I baked the batch I photographed in a square pan like traditional rolls I've made before, but I realised that when I baked them on a tray they puffed up more. *This filling is quite runny, this is fine, it bakes up fine with the flour in. You may make a slight mess on the work top though, so make sure you have plenty of space or a silicone pastry mat, so you can just pick it up and wash it. (mine is an absolute life saver!) *This recipe makes plenty for you to spoon lots over if you want to! We just prefer less glaze! Recipe by Annie of Annie's Noms
