Blueberrry Cinnamon Rolls

OK I need to do some good ole fashion butt whoopin!!! I wont name names or anything(Taci)but SOMEONE got me addicted to Pinterest! So yes I spend a lot of time on there looking (dreaming) at things.

I stumbled across this idea and thought hmmm the picture looks really good but I dont know how the blueberries would be in a cinnamon roll. So being a little curious I decided to test it out. YYYUUUMMM! The blueberries arent overwhelming at all it is the perfect combination. I however used my go to cinnamon roll dough recipe from Our Best Bites instead of the one off pinterest and then made my own frosting. One of my boys that loves fruit and isnt too much into sugar ate his without the frosting and loved it!!

Dough (
1 cup milk
4 Tbs butter, cut into chunks
3 1/4 – 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1 (.25 ounce) package instant or ‘rapid rise’ yeast (about 2 1/4 tsp)
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg

For the Blueberry Filling (
1 pint blueberries
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2-3 teaspoons lemon juice
3/4 cup water

Combine cinnamon & sugar to sprinkle on blueberry filling
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp cinnamon

Place milk and 4 Tbs butter in a microwave safe bowl. Heat on high for 1 minute 30 seconds. Butter should be at least partially melted. Stir and set aside. In a large mixing bowl whisk together 2 C flour, yeast, white sugar, and salt. When milk mixture has cooled to warm (not hot) add it to the flour mixture along with the egg while the beater (paddle attachment for those using a stand mixer) is running. Beat until well combined, about 1 minute. (Switch to the dough hook now) Add remaining flour only until dough barely leaves the sides of the bowl. It should be very soft and slightly sticky. Continue to let the dough knead for 5 minutes. If you are not using a stand mixer, turn dough out onto floured surface and knead for 5 minutes by hand. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and let rest for about 10 minutes while you make the filling.

Roll dough into a rectangle about 12 x 14 inches. Spread blueberry filling mixture over the surface then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture. Use your fingers or the back of a spoon to gently spread around. Roll up from the longer side of the rectangle and pinch edges closed. Score the roll into 12 equal pieces and then cut into rolls. Place in a 9 x 13 pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Cover pan with a clean towel and let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes. In the mean time, preheat oven to 350 degrees.

When rolls have finished rising bake for 15-20 minutes or until light golden brown. If desired spread with icing while still warm. Makes 12 rolls

Icing recipe:
2 pkgs cream cheese
1/2 cup butter softened
2-2 1/2cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

Beat cream cheese until softened. Add remaining ingredients. continue to beat until it is all combined well and the cream has had time to set up a little.
