  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix cream cheese, granulated sugar and 4 teaspoons lemon peel with electric mixer on medium speed until well mixed and no lumps remain.
  • 3
    Unroll dough on work surface into 12x7-inch rectangle, and cut into 8 rectangles (3x3 1/2 inches each). Spread 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture over each dough rectangle to within 1/4 inch of the short ends.
  • 4
    Roll up each rectangle, starting with shortest side, and pinch seam to seal. Place on cookie sheet, seam side down; brush with melted butter. Bake 11 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 10 minutes on cookie sheet.
  • 5
    In small bowl, mix powdered sugar and 2 teaspoons of the lemon juice. If necessary, add additional lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over warm crescent roll-ups, and garnish with additional grated lemon peel. Serve warm.
  • Cream cheese may be softened in the microwave. Remove wrapper, place on microwavable plate, and microwave on High 10 to 20 seconds.

Expert Tips

  • Crescent dinner rolls may be used in place of the dough sheets. Just unroll dough, and pinch seams together.
