Blueberry Cheese Rolls



Why is it that some of the simplest recipes are some of the best? That's the case with these rolls...they are super simple, and SOOOO good. I made them for the first time this past weekend and was surprised at how tasty they were! In fact, as I sit here typing this, I have more in the oven right now! Since it's only Jesse and I here, I didn't use the whole roll of crescents. I split it in half, used two rectangles, and put the other half in a baggie to make tomorrow (these don't strike me as something that will re-heat very well). I have the leftover  sugar/cream cheese mixture in the fridge as well so I can make fresh rolls tomorrow. This would be perfect to serve if you have company staying at your house. They're easy to throw together, you can make a bunch at one time, and they look pretty fancy! And you can switch it up a bit by using any type of fruit you like. I can definitely see myself making these pretty often!

  7. I have made these before, but the recipe I have uses powdered sugar instead of regular sugar. I never thought of adding the fruit. I will try the brown sugar as well:) Sounds yummy!

  8. Oh my gosh!!! I love these! I can't have regular cream cheese in my diet. I made these with the veggie (diary free) cream cheese with blueberries and cut up strawberries. I think I found a new favorite! Thank you for the recipe! I love it and yes, it is so simple! YUM YUM!!

  9. Printed out recipe, is there anyway to not print 11 pages..can this be corrected lots of wasted paper and ink...Will be making the recipe sounds delicious..

  10. If you copy and paste JUST the recipe to Notepad on your computer, then you can print it out from there (you won't have the photo, but you'll have the recipe). If you really want the pic then you can go to Printfriendly.com and paste the URL to print. I tried using their 'Print Friendly' button on each post but was having issues with it, so I removed it. Still haven't found a good 'Print This' link I like yet.

  11. Making this morning for 4th of July. Thinking of adding a line of strawberry preserves down the middle for the "red, white, and blue"! Thanks so much for sharing on Pinterest!

  13. I made these with fresh strawberries rather than blueberries, husband said they were the best things I'd ever made!

  14. I make this but with a few drops of lemon extract in the cream cheese and we do another one with apple pie filling and cinnamon sugar on top.

  15. I made these today as our ''Breakfast'' but as a trial run for my daughter's first tea party. I added lemon zest and a small squeeze of a lemon, and it was AMAZING!!! I love lemon and blueberry together. thank you for this post. I find myself on here a lot. :)

  16. So since you roll out the dough in rectangles does this recipe make four or do you combine and make one big one?

    ReplyDelete
  17. The directions say..."Heat oven to 375. Unroll dough into FOUR rectangles; firmly press perforations together to seal."...So, that would make four. I suppose if you wanted to, you could press two rectangles together and make two bigger ones as opposed to four smaller ones.

  18. Must have missed that. Sorry! Going to try asap!

    ReplyDelete
  19. No worries! I am intrigued though by the idea of a giant cheese roll. I kind of want to try it now!

    ReplyDelete
  20. OMG! Just made these but used blackberries instead...doubled the recipe and they are gone gone gone...cant wait to make them again. Thank you!!

  21. I just made these and instead of blueberries I used chocolate chips and drizzled chocolate sauce and OMG. Came across this on Pinterest.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Chocolate Chips?! Now THAT is a wonderful idea! I've gotta try it...thanks!

  24. Hey! I would love to try this! Only thing is that I am not from America and I don't know what a crescent roll is? Is it a kind of dough like puff pastry?
    Thank you!!

    They're a flaky, pastry type of dinner roll. You can always just google 'Homemade Crescent Roll Recipe', if you can't find anything similar in your local grocery store. They're pretty easy to make from scratch :)

  26. Just had an OMG! moment...I need to make these for a bunch of people...I am NOT mucking around making 16 little pouches, so.....
    Double the recipe
    Roll out 1 container of crescents - seal up the perforations so you have one big sheet of dough
    spread all the cream cheese / sugar mix on this within a 1/2 inch or so of the edge
    sprinkle with your berries of choice - mine are blackberries cuz they are cheap right now
    unroll the 2nd container of crescents - gently lay on the top of the berries & cheese mix
    don't worry about the perforations this time - steam needs to get out - cut a couple of more perforations
    seal lightly around the edges, bake until golden brown. drizzle with a icing sugar / milk glaze if you want
    use a pizza cutter to cut into individual serving slices - TADA! yummy danishes for a bunch without all that mucking about.

  27. LOVE it!! The perfect solution if you're making these for a whole bunch of people! I've never made more than 4 at a time, so it's never been a big deal making them individually, but HELL NO would I want to make these for a large group! Great idea :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Delicious! Thanks for sharing! I also like the idea of doubling for a large crowd...

    ReplyDelete
  29. Making this for Christmas morn in two days :) thnx for the idea!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love this! I will be making these tomorrow morning :)

  31. Ok, mine came out doughy :(. I think the temp needs to be lowered. The edges were done and good tho! I used apple pie filling and was delicious with the cream cheese.

  32. Made these for Breakfast this morning! (Needed a light one after all the food yesterday!) I added blueberries, blueberry juice and lemon juice ( a few drops of the blueberry, and half the juice from a lemon in with the cream cheese mixture) they turned out AMAZING! I had to make another batch because the hubs wanted more and ate a total of 3 of them! I just had one, even the kids had 2 a piece! I will be adding this to my monthly shopping list for breakfast! Thank you for sharing!

  33. I made these tonight for a snack for my family. They loved them and I looked like a rockstar. Thank you.

  34. I was going to a dinner party and made these as dessert. I reformed the crescent dough so it made six pastries, and used some strawberries because I had those on hand. After taking them out of the oven, I promptly ate four of them, shared one with my carpool, and ate the last one when I got home that night. There was no dessert at the dinner party.
