Directions

  1. Combine 1/4 cup milk, sugar, salt, and 3 tablespoons butter in a saucepan; heat until butter melts.
  2. Cool to 105 degrees to 115 degrees. Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large mixing bowl; let stand 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in milk mixture, 1-1/2 cups flour, and egg; beat at medium speed of an electric mixer until smooth.
  4. Stir in remaining 3/4 cup flour. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic (about 8 minutes).
  5. Place in a well-greased bowl, turning to grease top.
  6. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85 degrees), free from drafts, 1 hour (dough will not quite double in bulk).

  8. Roll dough into a 12- x 8-inch rectangle; spread with 2 tablespoons butter.
  9. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle mixture over rectangle.
  10. Sprinkle with blueberries.

Wow, these are terrific! Adding the blueberries adds a new dimension to the already great taste of cinnamon rolls. The one I gave my daughter was gone in seconds and she was sadly disappointed that she couldn't have a second immediately. My husband ate two, and he doesn't really like sweets that much. Thanks for sharing!
