Hawaiian Rolls Strawberry Cheesecake Sliders are the perfect small-bite serving that is great for breakfast, brunch, and parties. These dessert sliders are a delicious cross between strawberry shortcake and strawberry danish and are easier than either to make.

Hawaiian Rolls Strawberry Cheesecake Sliders

A few years back, sliders were the craze. They were at every party and event. Little 3-bite sandwiches made with every savory combination of meats, cheeses, and toppings that you can imagine. Those little party sandwiches are still popular. That led to dessert sandwich sliders.

And, I want to be on the record stating I highly approve of this new food craze

I see most dessert sliders using doughnuts as the bread and filled with cream cheese, fruit, hazelnut spread, or cookie dough.

After sharing my recipe for Quick Cinnamon Hawaiian Rolls way back in March of 2020 and seeing how everyone loves it, I thought I’d test sweet slider recipes using Hawaiian Rolls.

For these Hawaiian Rolls Strawberry Cheesecake Sliders, I made a quick cream cheese spread and layered it on the rolls. Then I topped it with strawberry pie filling and a drizzle of icing over the top. They come together really quickly and taste like a strawberry danish.

If you’re serving these as hand-held sliders, they’re a little messy with the glaze on top. You may want to consider omitting the glaze (don’t do it) or serving them with a fork instead. (I highly recommend a fork and all the glaze. 😍)

  • Hawaiian rolls. Hawaiian rolls are slightly sweet, buttery, soft rolls. You’re probably most familiar with King’s brand Hawaiian rolls but they do come in other brands, like this, and any brand will work. Actually, you can also use Sister Schubert parker house rolls for this recipe.
  • Cream cheese. It needs to be at room temperature. It’ll mix much easier. I don’t recommend low-fat or fat-free cream cheese.
  • Sugar. I used brown sugar but you can use granulated white sugar or coconut sugar.
  • Egg.
  • Strawberry pie filling. I used this brand.
  • Butter. I haven’t tested these with margarine or plant-based butter.
  • Powdered sugar.
  • Heavy Cream. You can sub milk, but heavy cream will be creamier and better.
  • Vanilla extract.

  • 1 12-count package Hawaiian rolls

  • Spoon the strawberry pie filling over the cream cheese. (I used about 3/4 of the can. You can spread it all on if you want.)

    1. Yes, you can thicken fresh berries.
      1 Tablespoon cornstarch
      3 Tablespoons warm water
      1 lb strawberries, hulled and sliced in half
      1/4 cup granulated sugar
      Whisk the cornstarch and water together until all the cornstarch has dissolved. Place this mixture and the rest of the ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir it as it cooks. Bring it to a simmer and simmer for 5 minutes (stir constantly). After 5 minutes, remove pan from the heat and allow to cool. It’ll get thicker as it cools.

      Replace this mixture with the canned strawberries.
