Blueberry Cinnamon Rolls

Homemade Cinnamon Rolls are the perfect weekend breakfast treat.  Add blueberries and you’ve got something extra special!

Hi, it’s Lori Lange from RecipeGirl.com, where I share family-friendly recipes for entertaining and every day.  I’m happy to be teaming up with Better Homes and Gardens to share a month of Breakfast and Brunch Recipes!  Each week, I’ll be sharing some mouthwatering treats that you’ll want to make on weekend mornings for your family.

Today I’m starting with Better Homes and Garden’s recipe for Crowd-Pleaser Cinnamon Rolls from scratch (they are incredibly easy and quick to make)… because who doesn’t love cinnamon rolls with every ounce of their being?!  They are such an indulgent, wonderful splurge.

The recipe begins with an easy-to-make yeast dough.  It’s mixed with a hand mixer to a certain point, and eventually the mixture ends up on a floured mat where you use your hands to incorporate the remaining flour.  Some gentle kneading will help turn the mixture into a smooth textured ball of dough.  The dough then rests for a short 10-minutes.

The dough is rolled out into a rectangle- with butter, cinnamon and sugar on top.  I made just one simple change to the recipe- I added and generous handful of fresh blueberries to give these cinnamon rolls a pop of fresh flavor.

The rectangle of sugared and blueberried dough is rolled log-style, sliced and placed into a 13×9-inch dish.  The cut rolls are covered and given a chance to perform a quick 30-minute rise.

When they emerge from the oven all puffed-up, steaming hot and golden brown, these rolls are drizzled with a sweet cream cheese glaze.

Served-up warm with a generous drizzle of the glaze… this is one breakfast treat that everyone will enjoy.  And the added blueberries bursting with juice make these even more fresh and delicious.  We loved them so much that I’d totally be completely willing to use raspberries or blackberries too (or a mix of both).
