I love the flavor of blueberry and lemon together. It’s so fresh and summery. But I think it makes all the difference when fat, fresh blueberries are in season. Several years ago, I planted six blueberry bushes in my back yard in an attempt to make my yard a mini farm. It’s so much fun to pick a handful of ripe berries, still warm from the vine and throw them right into your bowl of cereal. Talk about farm-to-table or in this case, yard-to-bowl! So, with blueberry season upon us, and my little patch of antioxidants about ready to pick, I wanted to share a way to use them other than just in cereal. Now, I realize that I have taken a super food and made it super unhealthy, but this is meant to be a special breakfast once in a blue moon. I think you’ll approve. Enjoy!
Blueberry Lemon Breakfast Rolls
- 1 can of crescent rolls
- ¼ cup of softened butter
- ½ cup of brown sugar
- 1 cup of fresh blueberries, washed and dried
- 1 lemon, 1 Tbsp of the zest and juice
- 2 oz of cream cheese at room temperature
- ¾-1 cup of powdered sugar.
- Wash and dry the blueberries. In a small bowl, mash together the softened butter and brown sugar.
- On a cutting board, roll out the crescent dough pinching together the perforated edges. Cut about 8 strips of dough.
- Smear the dough strips with the sugar mixture and dot with blueberries.
- Roll them up and place them in a cake pan.
- Bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes. The tops of the rolls should be golden brown.
- In another small bowl, combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar, lemon juice and zest. Mix together until it's a spreadable icing. Add more lemon juice to thin out, or add more powdered sugar to thicken, whichever you may need.
- When the rolls come out of the oven, allow them to cool for about 5-10 minutes before icing.
