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 myse

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.

I think these lemon blueberry cheesecake crescent rolls would make a great addition to any brunch table.  They would also make a great dessert, snack, or if you are like me and eat 5 at one time, meal, whoops!

They will lift your spirits and give you wonderful springtime thoughts with their bright lemony punch.  They would also be a wonderful addition to your Easter table and since they are so easy to make there is no excuse not to include them!
