Blueberry Almond Breakfast Braid

Enjoy a sweet treat of blueberry, cream cheese and almonds in a light and flaky breakfast pastry.

Growing up with a Swedish mother, we had a lot of Swedish braided breads for breakfast. This brings back so many memories of her, and I am excited to share it with you.

Can I use crescent roll dough for this?

I like to make my own dough when I can, but if you really want to, you can substitute the homemade pastry dough for crescent roll dough. It will make a delicious recipe either way. (and I won't judge at all, promise!)

Ingredients for the dough:

– Active Dry Yeast – Warm Water – Granulated Sugar – Salt – Baking Powder – Butter – All Purpose Flour

Ingredients for Cream Cheese Filling:

– Granulated Sugar – Cream Cheese – Butter

Ingredients you need for the blueberry filling

– Fresh blueberries – Granulated sugar – All purpose flour – Almond extract – Sliced almonds

– Save yourself some heartache and roll this out on parchment paper. Trust me on this. It'll be much easier to transfer to a baking sheet.

Some tips to making this breakfast braid

– You can use an electric mixer to knead the dough if you would like. Knead for 3-4 minutes on medium speed.
