    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 large egg
    • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • For the Filling:
    • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • For the Glaze:
    • 1 cup powdered sugar
    • 2-3 tablespoons milk
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Dough:
    1. In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water. Let it sit for about 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.
    2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the milk, sugar, melted butter, salt, and egg. Mix well.
    3. Add the yeast mixture to the milk mixture and stir to combine.
    4. Gradually add the flour, one cup at a time, mixing until a soft dough forms.
    5. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5-7 minutes, until smooth and elastic.
    6. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
  2. Prepare the Filling:
    1. In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
    2. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  3. Assemble the Rolls:
    1. Punch down the risen dough and roll it out on a floured surface into a large rectangle, about 1/4 inch thick.
    2. Spread the cream cheese and blueberry mixture evenly over the dough.
    3. Starting from the long edge, roll the dough tightly into a log.
    4. Cut the log into 12 equal pieces and place them in a greased baking dish, cut side up.
    5. Cover and let the rolls rise for another 30 minutes.
  4. Bake the Rolls:
    1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
    2. Bake the rolls for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.
  5. Prepare the Glaze:
    1. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth.
    2. Drizzle the glaze over the warm rolls.
