Back to School Breakfasts and Snacks with Pillsbury

I decided to make something for breakfast. Something sweet.  Something simple.  And something kids will love–  Crescent rolls filled with a lemon blueberry cream cheese filling drizzled with a simple lemon glaze.  Baked to perfection these babies will get your kids up and going in the morning!

Because when it comes to breakfast, my three year old isn’t interested.  All he wants is a cup of warm chocolate milk. Not too hot and not too cold Every.single.morning. But if breakfast is something sweet like these Lemon Blueberry Turnovers he’s definitely interested.  He doesn’t get sweets like this for breakfast every morning, but I’m okay with the occasional splurge, especially for a special breakfast on his first day of preschool! It’s something to celebrate:)

    Looks delicious Kristy! So easy too. How many blueberries does the recipe call for?

  2. cathy August 21, 2013

    These look delicious. What quantity of blueberries did you fold in? Or did you just add them until you reached the consistency you wanted?

    Thank you for the nice recipe.

  7. Laura August 23, 2013

    Is the lemon juice necessary or could you leave it out? I don’t care for the taste of lemon in my food so would like to leave it out or substitute it with something else if it’s necessary to have in the recipe.

  8. Ashley August 23, 2013

    Do you use 1 crescent per turnover or press 2 together?

  9. Oh my goodness, I want one of these right now!
