Blueberry lemon sweet rolls are semi-homemade, making them quick and easy to make, without all the fuss. Fresh blueberries and real cream cheese make the perfect filling.
Preparing meals that are quick and easy to make are a top priority for me, especially when it comes to breakfast.
Honestly, you could say it’s a top priority for any meal, really. I lead a busy life, so I don’t usually have time for anything other than that.
Eating a sweet first thing in the morning isn’t the norm for me, because all of that sugar tends to give me a food hangover.
I do, however, love a good pastry after I’ve had my eggs and bacon. Just give me a hot cup of coffee and I’m good to go.
Sweet rolls are one of my favorites, and, since I love just about blueberry anything, I thought blueberry lemon sweet rolls were in order.
Because I didn’t want all the fuss of a homemade dough, I simply used packaged crescent rolls.
Combined with the real cream cheese, fresh blueberries, and lemon glaze, you’d never know they were semi-homemade.
This recipe is actually an adaptation of a lemon honey bun recipe from 1980 something.
Believe it or not, I still have my recipe folder from my high school home economics class.
I love skimming through it looking for ideas when I just don’t know what to make.
Tips for Perfect Blueberry Lemon Sweet Rolls
- Use softened cream cheese to make combining easier
- Get uniform sweet rolls by chilling before slicing
- Rinse and dry blueberries completely before using them
- When cutting rolls, use a back and forth motion, rather than a downward motion. This will help keep your rolls from getting squished
Blueberry Lemon sweet rolls are perfect for any breakfast, brunch or even dessert. They reheat easily and are a huge hit with both adults and kids.
