Blueberry Cinnamon Rolls Ingredients

Blueberry Cinnamon Rolls raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 2 packages of crescent roll sheets
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 (13-ounce) jar of blueberry jam (or blueberry pie filling)
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries 

For the Optional Frosting

  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅛ cup heavy cream
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

CRESCENT DOUGH: If you can’t find full crescent dough sheets, you can use a can of crescent rolls where the sheet is perforated for easily separating into individual crescents. Unroll the sheet, keeping it intact as much as possible, and then pinch together along the perforated lines to seal everything back up into a single sheet.

DOUGH: You can make this blueberry cinnamon rolls recipe with your favorite sweet roll dough instead of the crescent dough if you wish.

How to Make This Blueberry Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

STEP ONE: Unroll one sheet of crescent dough onto a lightly floured surface or floured piece of parchment paper. 

STEP TWO: Mix the softened butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a small bowl to form a paste.

STEP THREE: Use a spatula to spread half of the butter mixture over the crescent dough, almost to the edges. Spread half of the blueberry jam over the butter/sugar mixture.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

If your jam is thick, microwave it for 15 seconds at a time, just until it is spreadable.

STEP FOUR: Roll the dough up tightly into a log, rolling along the short edge.

STEP FIVE: Slice the cinnamon roll dough into six 1½-inch wide pieces.

PRO TIP:

Use a bench scraper to cleanly cut through the rolled dough. The dough will be soft and the insides gooey, so do your best to cut clean slices and then transfer them quickly into the baking dish. Don’t worry if they don’t look uniform, the cinnamon rolls will rise during baking and won’t be so wonky.

STEP SIX: Repeat with the second crescent sheet and the remaining filling ingredients.

STEP SEVEN: Place the cinnamon rolls in a lightly greased 9×13 baking dish. Sprinkle 1 cup of fresh blueberries over the cinnamon rolls.

STEP EIGHT: Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, until the cinnamon rolls are lightly browned and cooked through.

PRO TIP:

Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to keep a close eye on your cinnamon rolls as the suggested baking time approaches.

STEP NINE: Beat or stir together optional frosting ingredients. Spread cream cheese over warm cinnamon rolls.

PRO TIP:

The cream cheese frosting is optional, or you may not use all of the frosting. You can also serve the frosting alongside the cinnamon rolls for those who want a little “extra.”
