3.5 cups all purpose flour

1 tbsp Suncore Foods® Rose Petals
3 large eggs
1/2 tsp salt
½ tbsp instant yeast
¾ cups warm water (100F)
1 egg + 1 tbsp water for egg wash
Raspberry Rose Jam:
1 lb frozen or fresh raspberries
2 tbsp Suncore Foods® Rose Petals
1 tsp rose water
1 tbsp lemon juice
½ cup sugar
1. Jam — Combine all ingredients except rose water and Suncore Foods® Rose Petals and cook on medium heat stirring frequently until jam is thickened, about 30- 40 minutes. Stir in the rose water and lightly crushed rose petals.
2. Dough — Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and mix with a wooden spoon to thoroughly combine. The dough will be very slack and sticky. Transfer dough to a large greased container and keep covered at room temperature until almost doubled in size. Transfer dough container to fridge and chill overnight.
3. Transfer dough onto a well dusted surface and divide into 4 equal parts. Roll out each part into a circle of 9 inches. Place one rolled out circle onto a parchment paper and spread 1/3rd of the jam. Place the second circle on top of the jam layer. Continue for the third circle and jam layer place the final circle on top of the third jam layer. Place a small 2 inch bowl in the center of the dough. Divide the rest of the dough into 16 equal portions. Twist adjacent portions and pinch together to make them stick.
4. Preheat oven to 375F. Cover and rest at room temperature for 90 minutes. Brush with egg wash and bake for 25 minutes.
