Blackberry Sweet Rolls With Lemon Icing

I would like summer back and what better way to celebrate it than with the taste of it with plump blackberries and lemons.  

Blackberry Sweet Rolls With Lemon Icing

1 sweet bread dough, allowed to rise overnight in a plastic wrapped and greased bread pan
2 tbsp butter, softened
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
10 oz blackberries, fresh or frozen

Lemon Icing

4 oz cream cheese, softened
3 tbsp butter, softened
1 tsp lemon extract
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Spread out dough into a large rectangle.  Spread softened butter over the dough.  Evenly sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon.  Spread blackberries over brown sugar.  Roll up the dough and cut into 12 equal slices.  Place in the pan and allow to rise.  Bake at 325° for 20 minutes.  Allow to cool before icing.

In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese, butter, lemon extract and powdered sugar.  Spread with a knife or spatula evenly over the blackberry sweet rolls.
