Updated Oct 19, 2018

Ingredients

Raspberry Palmiers

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

Steps

  • 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.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Instead of (or in addition to) the granulated sugar, try these variations: cinnamon and sugar or citrus peel and sugar.
  • tip 2
    Palmiers keep in an airtight container at room temperature up to 4 days. If desired, palmiers can be recrisped in a 300°F oven about 5 minutes or until heated through.
  • tip 3
    Great alternative to cheesecake when you’re in a hurry!
