Blueberry and Cream Breakfast Pastry / #BerryWeek

I hope you are enjoying #BerryWeek, and finding a lot of "must try" recipes! Monday I shared a recipe that is the perfect topper for a bowl of ice cream on a warm summer evening, Very Berry Salsa! I hope you will give it a try. It is super easy and very refreshing! 

Today's recipe is a little different. Blueberry and Cream Breakfast Pastry! Using fresh blueberries and homemade pastry cream, I decided to go with a pre-made crescent dough to make this recipe easier, allowing you more time to enjoy the incredible flavors and tastes that are the Blueberry and Cream Breakfast Pastry. You will want to make this over and over once you see how easy it is! Let's get started!



Blueberry Breakfast Pastry  
(printable recipe at end of page)
(makes 4-5 pastries)

 2 cups Milk
1/4 cup Sugar
2 Egg Yolks
1 Egg
1/4 cup Cornstarch
1/3 cup Sugar
2 tablespoon Butter
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 package Crescent Dough
Fresh Blueberries
Semi Sweet Chocolate



Stir together the milk and 1/4 cup of sugar using a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil using medium heat.

 In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and egg.


In a separate bowl stir together the cornstarch and 1/3 cup of sugar. Then pour the mix into the egg and whisk until smooth. Your milk should be at boil about now. Take the milk from the heat and slowly drizzle it into the bowl in a thin stream. Drizzling it slowly will keep the eggs liquid. If you pour too quickly, the eggs will begin to cook. You don't want that!


Pour the mix back into the saucepan. Slowly bring it to a boil, stirring constantly. Stirring constantly will prevent the eggs from curdling and/or the sauce burning on the bottom. As the mix boils it thickens. Once it is thick, remove it from the heat. You will know when it is thick enough. It will have a pudding consistency. Add butter and vanilla, stirring until it is completely melted and blended.

Pour the cream into a heat proof container.

Place a piece of plastic wrap on the top of the pastry cream to prevent skin forming. Refrigerate until cold.

When you are ready to make your pastry, unroll the dough on a cutting board.

Cut the dough into any size you want. I cut them to about a 3"x4" piece. Spread pastry cream over the pieces of dough.

Top the pastry cream with some blueberries. Starting at the bottom, roll the dough strips as shown on the left. Bake at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes, but all ovens are different, so watch your pastries closely.

Melt the semi sweet chocolate in a double boiler. Drizzle over the pastry before serving. Enjoy!
