Ok, I am just going to come out and admit it…..I ate 5 of these lemon blueberry cheesecake crescent rolls in one sitting!!!  I know, I know!  My excuse is that little baby in my tummy has to survive, right?!?!  I kinda wanted to just hide the rest from the family and keep them for myself, but I decided to share.  I’m so nice.  Ok, ok, I may have held a few more back for myself.

These are probably one of the most addictive rolls I have ever eaten, no lie!!  They are perfectly sweet, a little tart and the burst of blueberries puts them over the top.  Also, not to mention this is all gift wrapped in nice flaky crescent dough then drizzled with a sweet glaze.  I ask you what’s not to love!

I went the easy route and used store bought crescent dough.  Hey, a girl needs a little help from the store from time to time and flaky crescent dough is one of them!  For the filling, I used cream cheese, homemade lemon curd and fresh blueberries.  You could also use store bought lemon curd but I highly recommend using homemade!  It really isn’t that hard to make and it tastes amazing!

I could eat that stuff by the spoonfuls!!  Just giving you the real me here folks.  🙂

When filling these I used a good heaping couple of tablespoons and make sure to get some blueberries in each one.  I also didn’t obsess over trying to make these perfectly neat when I rolled them up.  I kinda like the blueberries peeking out, gives them character in my opinion.  After these come out of the oven let them cool completely before drizzling them with the glaze.  I left an option to make the glaze with milk or lemon juice.  If you want an extra lemony punch, go with the lemon juice.

These Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Crescent rolls make a great addition to any breakfast or brunch table! They are super easy to make and taste delicious!
