  • 1/3 cup warm water
  • 1 Tablespoon highly active yeast
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1/4 cup warm milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 to 2 1/2 cups flour more or less as needed


  • Wilderness Canned Lemon filling
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries I prefer wild as they are small sized


  • 2 tbsp softened salted butter
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla


  • In a small bowl, add warm water, yeast and 1 Tablespoon of sugar. Stir, and cover with a paper towel. Let sit for about 5 minutes until bubbly.
  • In a large bowl, stir together butter, milk, sugar and salt. Add yeast mixture when ready and stir until combined.
  • Add one cup of flour and stir until smooth. Add the remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time. Knead for 1-2 minutes. If the dough is too sticky, you can add a little more flour.
  • Once dough is nice and soft, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in a warm spot. Allow dough to rise for about 20 minutes. If it’s a cool day, warm your oven to 200° with a small pan of water, turn it off and set the bowl in there to rise.
  • While that is rising, zest your lemon and add it to a small bowl. Add ½ can of lemon filling and mix to combine.
  • Once your dough has risen, punch it down and roll out on a floured surface. You want to form a rectangle approximately 10×12 inches. It doesn’t have to be perfect.
  • Spread lemon filling over dough and then sprinkle blueberries evenly over dough. Roll dough tightly starting from 12 inch side.
  • Cut the dough into one inch pieces. Place dough onto a buttered baking dish with rolls about 1 inch apart. Let rolls rise for one hour.
  • Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  • While the rolls are cooking, beat together the frosting ingredients in a large bowl and then spread on top of the rolls. You can add more milk or powdered sugar to reach your desired consistency.
  • Enjoy!
