Not only do they taste amazing, but they are very easy to make. You can never go wrong with a crescent roll, right? Let me share the simply recipe with you.
- 2 cans Crescent Roll Dough
- 4 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
- 2 tablespoons Sugar
- 2 Tablespoons All Purpose Flour
- 2 Eggs
- 1 teaspoon Lemon Extract
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- Raw Sugar (for sprinkling)
- 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
- 1/3 cup Powdered Sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper. Open and unroll the cans of crescent dough and separate the dough and set aside.
In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese, sugar, flour, one of the eggs, and the lemon and vanilla extracts. Stir together until well combined and creamy.
Drop a small spoonful of the filling into the center of the large end of each of the crescent triangles.
Roll up carefully and pinch the sides to keep the filling inside. Curve into a crescent shape. Place crescents onto your lined cookie sheet. In a small bowl, crack open the other egg and lightly beat it. Brush the egg onto each of the crescents and sprinkle a little bit of the raw sugar over the tops.
Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Once the crescents are finished baking, remove them from the oven and let them cool. While they are cooling you can make a simple glaze by mixing the lemon juice and powdered sugar together until smooth. Drizzle over the tops of the crescents and serve immediately.
