Unraveling the Mystery of Cruffins

While many have savored the goodness of a blueberry muffin, the Blueberry Bliss Crescents introduce you to the delectable realm of cruffins—a delightful crossbreed of croissants and muffins. In this innovative recipe, convenient store-bought crescent roll dough takes center stage, eliminating the need for intricate homemade dough. Rolled up with blueberries and sugar, these cruffins promise layers of sweetness, perfect for a quick breakfast, a delightful snack with coffee or tea, or a satisfying dessert.

Ingredients & Substitutions

Dough: Embrace the ease of store-bought crescent roll dough in sheet form. If dealing with perforated dough, seamlessly pinch the seams together. For those inclined to make the dough from scratch, alternative recipes await your culinary adventure.

Butter: Soften unsalted butter to spread generously over the three dough sheets.

Sugar: Elevate the sweetness by sprinkling ample granulated sugar over the dough pre-baking, creating a delightful sugary crust.

Blueberries: Chop fresh blueberries before sprinkling, or thaw frozen blueberries, draining excess moisture for optimal results.

Mini Blueberry Cruffins, Anyone?

Absolutely! Transform these treats into mini blueberry cruffins. Instead of four cruffins per sheet, create eight for a total of 24 using all three sheets. Cut, roll, and place in a mini muffin tin, baking for 18 minutes at 350°F (180°C).

Storing Your Blueberry Bliss Crescents

Preserve the bliss by storing Blueberry Bliss Crescents in an airtight container. Enjoy freshness for up to 3 days at room temperature. For a warm delight, microwave for 15 seconds. Freeze for up to 2 months for extended enjoyment.
