Lemon Cream Cheese Crescent Rolls won’t keep you in the kitchen for long, thanks to the refrigerated crescent rolls.  Filled with lemon and cream cheese then topped with a powdered sugar glaze, these little treats are easy and oh so very good!

You could change the rolls up a bit by adding fresh berries or substitute orange zest and orange juice for the lemon and add chocolate chips before rolling the dough up. The possibilities are endless.   I love an easy little treat with versatility!  Enjoy!

Ingredients:

3 ounces cream cheese ,softened

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons lemon zest

1 can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

Optional : 1/4 cup sliced almonds for garnish, can also use walnuts or pecans

if desired

Glaze

1/2 cup powdered sugar

2 teaspoons milk ( 1 teaspoon more if needed to make a drizzling consistency)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a cookie sheet with shortening

Place the cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest in a small bowl.  Beat on medium speed until well combined.

Unroll crescent dough and separate into 2 large triangles.  Over lap the edges of the triangles to join them and press the seams together to make a large 13×7 triangle.  Press the perforations to seal together.  Spread the cream cheese mixture over the dough leaving a 1/2 inch edge around the triangle without cream cheese.

Start rolling the triangle at one long side, pinch the seam to seal.  With a serrated knife, cut the roll into 12 slices.  Arrange the slices on the cookie sheet in a circle , over lapping slightly.  You can also lay them in a straight line over lapping slightly.  Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.  Mix the glaze ingredients together and drizzle over crescents while warm.
