Blueberry Buttermilk Rolls and Inigo Montoya

Seriously.  Oh my goodness.  I saw this recipe over at Blueberry Kitchen and had to try it.  I was not disappointed.

(Why do my pictures look upside down lately?!?!?!?!)

Anyhoo.  Blueberry jam is not widely available around here.  Go figure.  So the hubby and I left he kids with Nana and went on a small road trip to Amish country. (OK, so we didn't really go all the way to Amish country just for blueberry jam...but we did find some while we were there.)

I should have gotten two jars.  I ran out. Fortunately, I had previously purchased a jar of blueberry preserves, in case I wasn't able to find jam.

While I was making the rolls, I noticed Hubby had left his favorite shirt on a kitchen chair, so I took a picture.

This isn't a step-by-step, just a few random pictures.  The dry ingredients and the butter:

The lovely, lovely dough after its first rising:

You can see where I ran out of jam and switched to preserves.

Rolled, cut out, and ready for their second rising:

The rolls after the second rise, just before the oven:

And fresh from the oven:

That one in front thought it was going to climb right out of the baking dish.

FYI: I doubled the original recipe because I was taking the rolls to Bible study, and I needed more than 12.  I had another 4 left over that were baked separately.  The family took care of those.

I'm not going to lie.  I didn't use the cream cheese glaze from the original recipe on mine.  I went with straight-up cream cheese frosting. I'm a rebel that way. And I didn't take a picture of the rolls with icing.  I'm also a doofus.

But trust me, they were everything I'd hoped for.  Light, fluffy, not too sweet, with just the right amount of blueberry goodness. Maybe next time I will zest a lemon over the filling before I roll them up.  Just to be wild and crazy.

Anyhoo, pop on over to Blueberry Kitchen and check out the full recipe.



  1. interesting...I think the possibilities are endless here...I may dive into this recipe myself! And as for that t-shirt...I LOVE this movie. I met Andre the Giant back in the late 80's and he was honestly the sweetest man. SO many amazing characters....

    1. I know! My head is spinning with all of the possibilities!
