Blueberry Mango Lemon Rolls



Ingredients

What You’ll need …
For the Dough:
• 2½ tsp yeast (1 pkg)
• ¾ cup warm milk
• ¾ cup water
• 3 eggs
• ½ cup sugar
• ½ cup softened butter (1 stick)
• 1 tsp salt
• 5 cups flour
• 1 tsp lemon zest (from 1 medium sized lemon)

For the Filling:
• 2 tsp lemon zest (from 2 medium sized lemons)
• ⅔ cup sugar
• ¼ cup melted butter
• 1½ cups blueberries
• ¾ cups mango (diced)

For the Lemon Cream Cheese Glaze:
• 4 oz Cream cheese (1/2 pack)
• 2 cups powdered sugar
• 2 TBS lemon juice or ¼ teaspoon of pure lemon extract
• 2 TBS heavy cream (or milk, or half and half)
• 1 tsp lemon zest (from 1 medium sized lemon)
• 1 tsp vanilla

Directions

-Dissolve your yeast in the warm milk in a large mixing bowl. Allow to proof for about 5 minutes. **You may also use the Rapid yeast pack that doesn’t require proofing)
-Add in the eggs, sugar, butter, salt, flour and zest and mix everything together.
-When the dough begins pulling away from the edges of the bowl, knead it for about 5 minutes (with your hands or a dough hook)
Remove the dough from the bowl and spray it with nonstick spray or rub with oil. Return dough to the bowl and cover with a towel.
Allow to rise for about 45 minutes until the dough doubles in size.
Lightly flour the counter top and roll the dough out into a large rectangle about ¼ in thick.


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Mix together your lemon zest and sugar to make your lemon sugar, set aside.
Cover dough with melted butter.
Sprinkle the lemon sugar evenly of the top.
Spread blueberries and mango mixture evenly over the top of the dough.
Carefully roll the dough from the top edge to the bottom edge to form a long roll being careful not to tear the dough too much.
Cut into 1½ in slices.
Lightly grease a 9x13in baking pan.
Place rolls into the pan and bake for 28-30 minutes until they are a light golden color.
Remove rolls from oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes before covering in glaze.

Glaze

Apply glaze generously to the top of the rolls evenly and serve.
