Bread is one of my favorite foods to bake. I often bake bread from scratch, as well as create variations on dinner rolls, sweet rolls, etc. In this recipe, I use my breadmaker and "ready-made" preserves to save time in the kitchen. This is a recipe you can substitute with your favorite "preserve" instead of the blueberries - maybe orange marmalade for a twist! These sweet yeast rolls rise well and have a light, fluffy texture. Serve warm and they will melt in your mouth. Note: The prep time is really minimal as it includes the dough cycle rise and the second rise of the rolls.
Breadmaker Dough Cycle: Add the liquids (milk, melted butter, beaten eggs to breadmaker container; add flour, sugar, and salt. Then make a well in center of flour and add yeast (or layer according to your manufacturer's directions). Select your dough cycle. I use the short dough cycle.
When dough cycle is complete roll out the dough on a pastry board into a rectangle 14" x 17". Spread blueberry preserves on dough leaving a small edge on all sides of dough. Roll the long top edge toward you as in a jellyroll style. You have to lift as you roll because of the filling. Turn to have seam on bottom and seal.
Cut into 11/2 inch slices (approximately 10 - 12). Place in greased 13" x 9" baking dish with filling side up. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size (approximately 45 minutes). Bake at 350 degrees for 18 - 22 minutes or until golden brown and center is cooked through.
Glaze: Mix together until smooth the powdered sugar, almond extract (or your preference flavor), melted butter and milk. Drizzle over blueberry sweet rolls.
