Ingredients

Raspberry Palmiers

1
can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations® refrigerated seamless dough sheet
1/4
cup granulated sugar
2
tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
2
tablespoons raspberry preserves, melted
Coarse sugar

Cream Cheese Filling

2
packages (3 oz each) cream cheese, softened
2
tablespoons granulated sugar
2
tablespoons whipping cream

Raspberry Filling

1/4
cup raspberry preserves
1
cup fresh raspberries
Mint leaves, if desired
  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Separate or cut dough into 4 (4x7-inch) rectangles; if using crescent roll dough, firmly press perforations to seal.
  • 2 Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the granulated sugar on cutting board. Place 2 dough rectangles on sugar; press lightly. Brush tops of dough with about 1 tablespoon of the melted butter and about 1 tablespoon of the raspberry preserves; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon granulated sugar. Place one rectangle on top of another; tightly roll both short sides of rectangle at the same time so they meet in the middle. Refrigerate rolls for 20 minutes for easier cutting.
  • 3 Repeat step 2.
  • 4 Using a thin serrated knife, cut each roll into 10 slices. Place cut side down 2 inches apart on parchment-lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle with coarse sugar. Press each slightly to flatten.
  • 5 Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.
  • 6 In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth; slowly add whipping cream. Increase mixer speed to high, and beat until light and fluffy.
  • 7 On serving plate, top 1 palmier with about 1 tablespoon cream cheese filling. Top with 1 teaspoon raspberry preserves and 3 fresh berries. Place another palmier on top and press slightly. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
