Blackberry Cheesecake Dessert for Two

What a great idea! A frozen roll is flattened to be the flaky and tender crust for a creamy, dreamy fruit dessert for two.

Blackberry Cheesecake Dessert

Prep 20 min | Yield: 2 servings


  • 2 Pillsbury® Oven Baked frozen butterflake dinner rolls (from 20.3 ounce bag)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 4 ounces fresh blackberries or 1 cup Cascadian Farm® frozen organic blackberries, thawed, drained


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place frozen rolls on a microwavable plate. Microwave uncovered on HIGH for 10 seconds; turn over and microwave 10 seconds longer.
  3. Press and stretch each roll into 4 inch round with 1/4 inch high rim around outer edge. Using a fork, prick dough generously. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Place rounds 2 inches apart on cookie sheet; brush surfaces with beaten egg.
  4. In a small bowl, mix granulated sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over rounds.
  5. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. After 5 minutes, prick crust if it starts to bubble.
  6. Cool completely, about 10 minutes.
  7. In the same small bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.
  8. Beat in powdered sugar, whipping cream and lemon peel. Spread half over top of each round; top with blackberries.


No blackberries in sight? Try it with raspberries - simply delicious!
