School’s out for summer. This is cause for celebration at my house. At least for about 3 weeks, then it’s maybe a different story.
My daughter who is 7 and already WAY to dramatic, started crying on Friday because it was the last day of school. When I asked why she was crying she blubbered that she was, “so sad that school is out and 1st grade is over.” Then she continued, “because you are going to make me do chores all summer and all you are going to do is BOSS ME AROUND!”
Well, the beginnings of the lazy days of summer, where I sit around in my pajamas and boss Dr. Jones around are here. I will need something to snack on while I get my Miss Hannigan on. Something really delicious. That I won’t share with the children. I will make them eat lumpy porridge. And I will eat lemon blueberry sweet rolls.
Summer is sounding great!
I love, love, love lemon. I think I have mentioned it. Lemon is bright and fresh tasting. The lemon glaze soaks into the rolls and I love the sour/sweet combination. Then there is the white sugar with lemon zest filling that packs just an extra dose of lemony-ness. Then you add blueberries for a little flavor and color boost. I think I may like these as much or more than a good old fashioned cinnamon roll. It’s a close call. I will have to do more research for sure.
This recipe was inspired by the Pioneer Woman. She has a lemon blueberry sweet roll recipe, but I have used my own sweet roll dough recipe and only used the instructions for the filling from her recipe.
