Here is a recipe I made a while ago for an old blog that some friends started (and is no longer really active). These were so good, we ate them for breakfast but they are deliciously sweet and you can have them for dessert or all day like I’m pretty sure I did 🙂
1 package of Crescent Rolls
1/4 cup of Jam (I used Strawberry)
4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg + 1 tsp of water for egg wash
Preheat the oven to 375° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla. Cream until there are no lumps.
Unroll each crescent roll. On the fattest part of the triangle place 1 tsp on cream cheese mixture and one tsp of jam. Roll into a croissant shape.
Whisk together egg and water for egg wash and brush over each croissant.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until crescents are golden brown and inside is no longer doughy.
EAT & ENJOY!!! (My Favorite part!!!)
Here is the horrible picture, you know, before I was a “pro” at picture taking (pretty sure I still suck but they tend to look a little better than this!)
What are you waiting for, bake this! You won’t be sorry!
