Crescent Roll Blueberry Cream Cheese Braid

It’s blueberry season and I am finally picking my home grown blueberries even though I am sharing them with the birds. I’m thrilled to get any blueberries since this has been the most birds we have ever had nesting in our evergreen trees.

This recipe is from a cooking class that I took a while back and it tastes delicious. It uses crescent rolls from a can, cream cheese, blueberries and a lemon icing. It is a simple and delicious dessert or breakfast.

  1. This looks so delicious – and must be so nice to draw from ingredients in your yard. If it was me, I would have trouble not eating the cream cheese mix from the bowl!

    On a related note, I’m harvesting the rhubarb from my garden today and making your strawberry and rhubarb pie recipe. I’ve waited till their max ripeness and size. Today is the day!

    • I licked the bowl with a spoon, does that count? 🤣 Oh enjoy that pie my rhubarb is done but I have plenty in the freezer. Let the flower stalks grow and dry then shake off the seeds so you get more rhubarb!

  2. This looks so delicious!! At first I thought it would be difficult to make … how to fold that dough to make the perfect pie, but it’s actually quite easy 😊. The only problem … I would be licking my fingers while making it!!

  3. Cream cheese, crescent roll dough, are right up there with bacon. What a beautiful picture. It has been a long time since I have picked my own blueberries. Can you net them to keep the birds out?

    • Usually I hang aluminum pans from steel posts. They bang in the wind and shine in the sunlight. That has always worked, for about 25 years now. This year I had surgery and didn’t get it done. I only have 2 bushes and netting would be more work than it’s worth. I guess I can’t complain though I have plenty to get me through the winter now. Maybe I should come up with a crescent roll, cream cheese and bacon recipe! 🤣

  4. Beautiful! Do you mind if I share your recipes om my blog? I am trying to build up some followers on my word Press blog to have my recipes go out everywhere and of course yours also. I am in about 8 cooking groups and have tons of Facebook friends that I share my blog with. Thank you for your awesome looking recipe. Connie B.
