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!
