Blackberry Cinnamon Roll Slump Recipe

Blackberry Cinnamon Roll Slump Recipe
Summer berries are always a treat, especially when they’re locally grown. Most of us, however, don’t have a lot of time to use them in fancy, time consuming dishes. If you have a couple of tubes of refrigerator cinnamon rolls, you can put together a delicious dessert in just minutes, using the berries as a filling (which is cooked in the microwave and is very quick). Blackberry Cinnamon Roll Slump is fancy enough for company, and the cook will be saved the time of measuring and mixing the crust and top of this delicious dessert. A Slump is another name for cobbler and originated in some regions of New England. It is named for its “slumpy” appearance (whatever that means), and is in the same genre as a crisp, buckle, cobbler, and grunt; all have differences, and all are fruit desserts with some kind of crust or cake. You can call your version whatever you like.
While refrigerator dough isn’t always the best, the cinnamon roll variety makes a perfect crust for this dessert. With only about 15 minutes prep time and 30 minutes baking time, you’ll find yourself making this dessert again and again. You can vary the fruit depending on what’s available. It’s great with blackberries, but raspberries, blueberries, or even peaches are also good choices.
