Blueberry Rolls

From the 1939 Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book
Prep: 25 minutes Bake: 20 minutes
Oven: 425 degrees F Makes: 9 servings

1 16 1/2 oz can blueberries
1 recipe Rich Shortcake (see below)
1 T butter or margarine, melted
2 T sugar
1/2 t ground cinnamon
1/4 C sugar
2 T all-purpose flour
2 t lemon juice
Vanilla ice cream (optional)

1. Drain blueberries, reserving juice; set aside.  Grease a 2-quart square baking dish; set aside.  Prepare Rich Shortcake dough.  On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into an 11x9 inch rectangle.  Brush dough with melted butter.  Combine the 2 T sugar with the cinnamon; sprinkle over dough.  Sprinkle 1 C of the drained blueberries over dough.  Roll up, starting from a short side; pinch to seal seam.  Set aside.

2. In a small saucepan combine the 1/4 C sugar and the flour.  Add remaining blueberries and reserved juice.  Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubble.  Remove tfrom heat; stir in lemon jice.  Pour blueberry mixture into prepared dish.  Cut roll into 9 equal slices.  Place slices, cut side down, on top of blueberry mixture.  Bake in a 425 oven for 20 minutes or until rolls are golden.  If desired, serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

Rich shortcake: In a medium mixing bowl combine 2 C all-purpose flour, 4 t baking powder, 1 T sugar, and 1/2 t salt.  Using a pastry blender, cut in 1/3 cup shortening until mixture resembles course crumbs.  Make a well in the center of mixture.  Add 2/3 cup milk and 1 beaten egg all at once.  Stir just until dough clings together.  On a heavily floured surface, coat the dough lightly with flour.  Knead the dough gently for 10-12 strokes.
