Ingredients

Crescent Ring

  • 1 package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 1 can (8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Dough Sheet or 1 can (8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Rolls (8 Count)

Glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons milk

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray. In small bowl, mix cream cheese, granulated sugar, lemon juice and lemon peel with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.
  • 2
    Unroll dough sheet. (If using crescent rolls, unroll dough and separate into 2 large rectangles. Overlap long sides to form 13x7-inch rectangle; firmly press edges and perforations to seal.) Spread cream cheese mixture on rectangle to within 1/2 inch of edges.
  • 3
    Starting with 1 long side of rectangle, roll up; pinch edge to seal.
  • 4
    With serrated knife, cut into 12 slices.
  • 5
    Arrange slices on cookie sheet in a circle, overlapping slightly.
  • 6
    Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. In small bowl, mix Glaze ingredients until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over warm crescent ring.

  • Sprinkle the crescent ring with powdered sugar in place of the glaze if you like.
  • You can prepare the crescent ring up to 2 hours ahead of time; cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate. Add a few extra minutes to the bake time.
