Pretty-as-a-picture breakfast rolls look impressive--but they are easy as can be and so delicious!

Ingredients

Pinwheels

1
can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheet
1
package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
1
teaspoon granulated sugar
1
teaspoon grated orange peel
1/4
teaspoon almond extract
1/4
cup apricot preserves

Glaze

1/2
cup powdered sugar
2
to 3 teaspoons milk

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray. Unroll dough on work surface; press into 12x8-inch rectangle. Cut into 8 squares; place on cookie sheet.
  • 2 In small bowl, beat cream cheese, granulated sugar, orange peel and almond extract with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Spoon about 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture onto center of each square. Top each with 1 1/2 teaspoons apricot preserves.
