  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated orange zest, divided
  • 1⁄4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1⁄4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1⁄4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 package (8 ounces) crescent roll dough sheet
  • 1⁄4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1⁄4 cup plain Greek yogurt


  1. In a medium skillet set over high heat, stir together frozen blueberries, 1 1/2 tablespoons orange zest, orange juice and granulated sugar. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes or until thickened to a jam-like consistency. Let cool completely.
  2. Preheat oven to 375˚F. In small bowl, stir together butter, brown sugar and cinnamon until blended.
  3. On lightly floured work surface, unroll crescent dough sheet. Spread evenly with butter mixture, leaving 1/2-inch border along one short side.
  4. Reserve 1 tablespoon blueberry mixture. Spread remaining blueberry mixture over butter mixture. Starting from the short side with no border, roll tightly into a log, pinching edges to seal. Slice evenly into 8 rolls.
  5. In a lightly greased 8-inch round baking dish, arrange rolls.
  6. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and bubbling. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  7. In another small bowl, whisk together confectioners’ sugar, yogurt, reserved blueberry mixture and remaining orange zest.
  8. Drizzle glaze over top of rolls.
