I find any reason to make sweet rolls.
Let’s make sweet rolls!
It’s a Sunday?
It’s sweet rolls time!
Say it with me…SWEET ROLLS!!
I used to make plain boring cinnamon rolls every week, but like I just stated, they are boring!!! So, I started experimenting with different flavors. I tried cherry rolls, orange rolls, and even chocolate rolls.
Ya can’t forget about chocolate, come on…
But, I couldn’t believe that I had’nt thought about doing a blueberry roll. I love blueberries about as much as I do chocolate.
Anyway, I wanted to add a little zest to them, so since I’ve been on a lemon kick (I’ll tell you about that in another post), I added lemon to boot. I’ll tell you, they kicked plain and boring cinnamon roll’s butt.
And, just to let you know, as I write this, it’s Sunday AND a snow storm. So, of course I had to make twice as many!
- Your favorite sweet roll dough
- For the Filling
- 24 oz fresh blueberries
- 1 cup plus 6 Tbsp sugar
- 1½ tsp cornstarch
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 10 Tbsp butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 375º.Grease 9×13 pan with butter-very important! In a large mixing bowl, combine blueberries, 6 Tbsp sugar, cornstarch, 2 Tbsp lemon juice. Carefully stir to coat berries well. Set aside. For the sweet roll dough, divide the dough in half, place it on a floured surface and roll out two long rectangles, 30×10 inches. Brush the dough generously with the melted butter. Sprinkle 1 cup of sugar over top the melted butter on both rectangles. Spoon the blueberries out evenly over the top of the buttered/sugared dough. Roll the dough tightly toward you to form your dough logs. Once the log is rolled up, press the seam into the dough to seal.Slice rolls in 1-1½ inch slices. Make three rows of three if you are using a 9×13 baker. Cover them with a towel and let sit for a half of an hour. Bake until golden. About 18 to 20 minutes.
- For the glaze, mix all ingredients until smooth. Slather over sweet rolls as soon as they come out of the oven.
- This recipe makes a lot. Two full 9×13 pans when sliced in 1½ inch slices.
