For the Filling and Assembly:

(3/4 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature, plus more for pan

1/2 c.

packed light brown sugar

All-purpose flour, for work surface

2 1/4 c.

(9 3/4 ounces) frozen blueberries

For the Glaze:
4 oz.

  1. Make dough: Oil a bowl. Whisk together sugar, yeast, salt, and 1 3/4 cups flour in a second bowl. Cook milk and butter in a small saucepan over low heat until butter has melted and mixture reads between 105°F and 110°F on an instant-read thermometer, 2 to 4 minutes.
  2. Add milk mixture and egg to flour mixture. Beat with a dough hook attached to an electric mixer on low speed until moistened. Continue beating, gradually adding remaining 1 3/4 cups flour, until smooth and pliable, 2 to 4 minutes.
  3. Transfer dough to prepared bowl; cover with plastic wrap. Let rise, in a warm place, until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  4. Make filling and assemble: Butter a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Combine sugar and butter in a bowl.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 12-by-16-inch rectangle. Spread with sugar mixture. Top with blueberries. Starting from one long side, roll into a log. Cut into 12 pieces and place, cut sides up, in prepared dish. Cover with plastic wrap. Let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 375°F. Bake until cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool 20 minutes.
  7. Make glaze: Whisk together cream cheese, butter, sugar, cream, vanilla, and salt in a bowl until smooth. Spread over rolls.
