Blueberry Sweet Rolls

So, around here, Sunday's are usually my (Cort's) and my husband's "take it slow" kinda mornings. With crazy (and sometimes opposite) schedules, we don't really get a ton of time to sit, talk, drink our coffee, and enjoy a morning together. Growing up, Sunday was also the day where my mom or grandma made a big family breakfast and we all just kind of lounged in our pj's until it was time to do something else! So, even though our family out here in Los Angeles is just me, Tyler, and our pup, Lily, I still kind of like that idea. Make breakfast together, put on a pot of coffee, talk, read, and not worry about rushing anywhere! 

And these blueberry sweet rolls are perfect for Sunday Breakfast!

Ingredients:

  • 1 (13.8 oz) tube of refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 tbsp blueberry preserves
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp butter or ghee
  • 1 tbsp milk (but we always use almond milk)

First, roll out the pizza dough on a well-floured surface, using a rolling pin or spoon to flatten it evenly. Next, spread melted butter onto the dough, making sure it reaches all the way to the edges! You don't need a lot, but just make sure the dough has an even coat! 

After that, sprinkle on your brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, & blueberry preserves----mix and spread evenly with a spoon! Then top off mixture with your blueberries & lemon juice! 

Now that your mixture is on the dough, take the edge of one of the shorter sides of the rectangle, and slowly roll up the dough! Try to keep your mixture even as you roll it up! Once it's in a roll, use a sharp knife to cut the roll into pieces. 

Place in a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray, and bake at 400 for about 20-25 minutes! 

When your sweet rolls have about 5 minutes left to bake, start mixing your glaze! Whip your powdered sugar, almond milk (or regular milk), and vanilla extract together in a bowl. I also added a splash of amaretto coffee creamer, cause Ty and I are obsessed with any and everything amaretto! Whip mixture until most of the lumps are gone! 

As soon as the sweet rolls come out of the oven, drizzle mixture over them so it gets all warm and yummy. Also, this is a recipe for a thin glaze, not a frosting! If you want it to be more frosting like, you could substitute the powdered sugar for cream cheese! Add some sprinkles if you're feeling crazy. ;)

And voila! 

Let them cool for a few minutes, make a pot of coffee, and just take it sloooooow. Because after eating one of these babies, trust me, there's no moving fast. ;)

Enjoy, loves!
