  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In small bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice; beat until smooth.
  2. Crescent Rolls: Unroll dough; separate dough into 8 rectangles; firmly press perforations to seal. Recipe Creations: Unroll dough; cut into 8 rectangles.
  3. Spread each rectangle with about 2 tablespoons cream cheese mixture. Roll up each, starting at longest side; firmly pinch edges and ends to seal. Gently stretch each roll to about 10 inches.
  4. On ungreased large cookie sheet, coil each roll into a spiral with seam on the inside, tucking end under. Make deep indentation in center of each roll; fill with 1/2 teaspoon preserves.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes or until deep golden brown. In small bowl, blend all glaze ingredients, adding enough milk for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm rolls.

I did the same thing the other reviewer did, I just filled them and then rolled them like a normal crescent roll, but I tucked the sides together more tightly. One thing, I thought there was wa...

I used lemon curd instead of fruit preserves. We didn't care for them. I don't feel like the crescent dough is transformed enough in this recipe

These were good, but I need to bake them longer because the insides were not quite done.

These have been a huge hit at home and at work. I have done them with strawberry jam and apple jelly with cinnamon mixed in the cream cheese mixture. Both turned out great! I did have a little e...
