Blueberry Roll


1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1⁄2 teaspoons salt 2 tablespoons sugar 5 tablespoons shortening or half butter 1 egg 1⁄4 milk (approx.) 1 1⁄2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries 1/3 cup sugar 1 teaspoon lemon zest Cinnamon



Sift flour, baking powder, salt and 2 tablespoons sugar into bowl. Cut in shortening(butter) and lemon zest until mixture resembles coarse corn meal. Beat egg slightly with a fork in cup; add milk to make 1⁄2 cup in all. Blend well. Add flour to mixture and stir quickly with fork until just mixed. Turn onto lightly floured board and knead gently about 10 times, until outside looks smooth. Roll or pat into a rectangle, approximately 8 X 10 inches.

Cover dough evenly with berries (all but 1 inch on sides.) Sprinkle the 1/3 cup sugar over berries. (If using frozen berries, don’t thaw before use. If frozen, let thaw on dough for 10 minutes before rolling. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Roll like a jelly roll. Place on greased shallow pan. Preheat oven to 350°F and bake for approximately 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown. Cut in slices and serve hot.
