Ingredients

  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 8 teaspoons peach preserves or flavor of your choice
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons whole milk

Directions

  1. Separate dough into four rectangles; seal perforations. On a lightly floured surface, roll each into a 7x3-1/2-in. rectangle. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice until smooth; spread over rectangles. Roll up from a long side; pinch edges to seal. Holding one end, loosely coil each.
  2. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Top each coil with 2 teaspoons preserves. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to wire rack.
  3. For glaze, in a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough milk to achieve desired consistency. Drizzle over the tops.
