What You Need To Make This Blueberry Cheesecake Rolls Recipe?
Cream Cheese: It’s important to have the cream cheese, at room temperature so that it mixes smoothly with the ingredients. If you forgot to take it out in advance you can briefly warm it up in the microwave on a low setting. Be cautious not to melt it completely.
Vanilla Extract: For the flavor opt for vanilla extract. If you’re using vanilla essence instead keep in mind that it might have a stronger taste so adjust accordingly based on your preferences.
Powdered Sugar: Also referred to as confectioners’ sugar this ingredient adds a sweetness to the cream cheese mixture. It is finely ground to ensure that it blends well with the cream cheese without leaving any gritty texture.
Crescent Roll Dough: When using store-bought dough ensure that it is fresh and hasn’t expired. Keep it refrigerated until you’re ready to use it. This type of dough creates a buttery crust that enhances the flavor of the rolls.
Blueberries: Fresh blueberries are the highlight of this recipe as they provide a tangy burst with every bite. When selecting blueberries choose ones, with smooth skin and a deep blue color. If you decide to go with frozen blueberries make sure they are completely thawed and drained before using them in the rolls. This will help prevent any moisture from affecting the texture of the rolls.
Steps To Make Blueberry Cheesecake Rolls:
Step 1: Start by preheating your oven to a cozy 375°F.
Step 2: Take a bowl and combine the cream cheese, vanilla extract and powdered sugar. You can use either a hand mixer or a stand mixer if you have one!
Step 3: Take out one of the crescent roll triangles as if you were preparing to paint on a canvas. Spread a tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture on the third of the triangle. Then artistically arrange two rows of blueberries on top of the cream.
Step 4: Now it’s time to roll it up! Start from the end to you. Tightly roll it all the way to the tip of the triangle.
Step 5: Place this masterpiece, onto a baking sheet. Repeat this process for the remaining triangles.
Step 6: Put them in the oven. Bake for around 10 to 13 minutes. They will be brown filling your kitchen with an incredible aroma. Enjoy them while they are warm—the warmth enhances both their flavor and creamy texture!
To add an indulgence once the rolls are done baking you can drizzle a basic glaze on top. Simply mix together a tablespoon of milk, with a tablespoon of sugar until you get a smooth consistency that can be drizzled. This will provide the Blueberry Cheesecake Rolls with a sweet touch and make them look like they came from a professional bakery making them even more tempting!
