If you’ve even gone through my content here at DelightfulEMade, you’ll quickly discover that I’m pretty much in love with blueberries!  We didn’t have them much as a kid, as blueberries were not very plentiful in the rural parts of South Dakota.  However, on the rare occasion, where this gorgeous berry would make an appearance, I was gobbling them down like candy.

This past weekend, I picked up a BIG container of blueberries, and wanted to make something breakfast-y.  I grabbed a tube of crescent roll dough, and folded together this super-simple, and uber yummy Blueberry Cream Cheese Breakfast Braid!

Here’s how this super simple breakfast braid comes together:

Step 1: Roll Out the Crescent Dough, Slice and Fill

You’ll start by rolling out your crescent roll dough (I purchased the sheet, which doesn’t have perforations.  However, if you can only find the crescent rolls, those work just as well.)  I then mixed together 4 oz. of cream cheese with a couple tablespoons of sugar, and spread in the center of the dough. Much like my Blueberry Cream Cheese French Toast Bake, I find that blueberries and cream cheese go really well together. When the blueberries and cream cheese bake, they bubble together making the most delicious filling for this breakfast braid.

With kitchen shears I cut strips along the edge of the center (about 4″) – I had around 12 strips. Feel free to also use a sharp pairing knife if shears are not handy.  I then rinsed my blueberries, added a bit of sugar and cornstarch, and poured them on to the top of the cream cheese layer.

Step 2: Add Almonds and Fold Over the Dough Strips

Aren’t those berries gorgeous?  Can you spot the star that filled with sugar on the left image?  Cool, right?!

On top of the blueberries I added a sprinkling of sliced almonds.  These were a fantastic addition, as it added a nice crunch to the center of the pastry.  Then, begin folding the strips to the center of the berries.  I simply overlapped each strip on to the next, and folded in the ends – this doesn’t have to be perfect.  Just before baking, I added a sprinkling of turbinado or raw sugar to create a pretty, golden crust. This is totally optional, but it actually adds a wonderful texture to the baked dough. If you cannot find turbinado sugar, simple granulated sugar works just as well.

Step 3: Bake and Glaze

It won’t take long for this beautiful breakfast braid to bake. I baked the pastry at 375 degrees for 15-18 minutes. This will give the berries time to bubble and pop, and the crust will become a beautiful golden brown.

After this gorgeous breakfast braid comes out of the oven, I then drizzled it with a basic powdered sugar/cream cheese glaze.  It’s a nice addition to the top of the pastry, and the cream cheese compliments the filling perfectly.

Step 4: Slice and Serve the Breakfast Braid

Slice while warm, and you’ll have the most glorious morning treat to go with your coffee or tea. Feel free to slice in strips or triangles – whatever suits your fancy.

Here’s a quick-reference grocery list of the ingredients you’ll need for this fantastic breakfast braid recipe:

  • Crescent Dough (refrigerated 8 oz. tube)

  • 1/4 c. granulated sugar, divided
  • 2 c. (1 pint) fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp. corn starch
  • 1/4 c. sliced almonds
  • 2 Tbsp. turbinado or raw sugar
  • Glaze:
  • 1 c. powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. cream cheese
  • 1-2 Tbsp. milk

  6. While pastry is baking, mix together the glaze by creaming together the powdered sugar, cream cheese, and milk. Mix until smooth.

    I HAVE to make this! A couple years ago I bought a frozen braid from a school fundraiser and made it for a breakfast potluck and everyone thought I had made it from scratch, it was delicious. But now I can actually make it myself and I bet it will be even better! I had found other recipes that had way more work than I wanted to go into at the time, this recipe looks easy and perfect. Thanks!

    Hi Delightfulemade, I would love to make this but live in Australia and we are not blessed with the presence of crescent dough. Do you have any suggestions as to what could be used instead please? I'm happy to make my own pastry if you know a good recipe. Many thanks for your awesome posts, love your work ? Kind Regards, Pam

    What a yummy treat and easy to make! Didn't have almonds so added a bit of almond extract for a hint of the taste. Will make sure I have almonds on hand because I will definitely be making this again. It was a hit. Thanks for sharing.
