Shortcut Berry Cheese Morning Buns Recipe

Shortcut Berry Cheese Morning Buns Recipe
Do you love flaky, flavorful breakfast rolls but don’t have time to make them? Morning buns have become very trendy in custom bakeries; they are made with croissant dough coated with a cinnamon sugar mixture and are flaky and good. Refrigerated puff pastry is used in the following Shortcut Berry Cheese Morning Buns, and they are every bit as decadent as some served in the best bakeries.
These buns are perfect for a special brunch or weekend breakfast. However, they are very easy and quick to put together. You can use your favorite berries – blueberries, raspberries, sliced strawberries, and/or blackberries. Spreading with a cream cheese filling softens the dough slightly without destroying the flakiness so that it is very similar to croissant dough.
