Ingredients

2
cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1
package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/3
cup sugar
1
egg, separated
14
miniature semisweet chocolate chips, if desired
7
pink heart-shaped candy sprinkles, if desired

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2 Unroll 2 cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls onto work surface, leaving 1 square with 2 triangles rolled up tight. Set roll aside for later.
  • 3 In medium bowl, beat 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened, 1/3 cup sugar and 1 egg yolk until smooth and creamy. Place egg white in separate small bowl; beat with whisk until slightly frothy.
  • 4 To make 1 bunny, separate 1 square of dough into 2 triangles. On cookie sheet, arrange triangles on top of each other with short sides together and long points at top opposite each other.
  • 5 Fold top points over slightly to make bunny ears. Gently pinch middle sides of dough inward to make neck of bunny.
  • 6 Spread about 1 1/2 tablespoons cream cheese mixture just below neck in small circle to look like bunny’s fluffy tummy.
  • 7 Pull bottom corners of dough triangles up over cream cheese mixture to resemble feet.
  • 8 Cut roll of dough into 7 slices. Gently pinch and press 1 slice into side of bunny’s tummy to resemble a fluffy tail.
  • 9 Lightly brush dough with beaten egg white. Arrange 2 miniature semisweet chocolate chips for eyes and 1 pink heart-shaped candy sprinkle for nose. Repeat to make 6 more bunnies.
  • 10 Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

Expert Tips

To sweeten these up a little more, try whipping up a quick icing to drizzle on top: Whisk together 1/2 cup of powdered sugar with 1 tablespoon of milk, and then drizzle over the top of the baked bunnies.

Try adding a small dollop of raspberry preserves to the top of each before baking for a fruity twist!
