Easy Crescent Danish Rolls
Crescent rolls are the starting point for these plump homemade
Danish rolls with a cream-cheese filling.
Prep: 20 Min - Ready in: 45 Min
1 (8-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 (8-oz.) cans Pillsbury® Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
4 teaspoons preserves or jam
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 to 3 teaspoons milk
1. Heat oven to 350°F. In small bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar
and lemon juice; beat until smooth.
2. Separate dough into 8 rectangles; firmly press perforations to
seal. 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.
3. 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.
4. Bake at 350°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.
