WOW Me Wednesday! Early

Standard

We’ve decided on a Brunch for Amie’s baby shower.  Part of the menu will be my “Chocolate Croissants” (https://tinyurl.com/y8alpu8d) and then I found this recipe for “Lemon Cheesecake Croissants”!  I did a test run on Sunday . . . and if you like lemon . . . you’ll love these!!!!  Needless to say – both flavors of croissants will be attending the baby shower, lol.  Who can choose between chocolate or lemon?!?!  Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients

Rolls

  • 1 package 8 count refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 4 oz. cream cheese cold
  • 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. lemon extract (maybe a tad more – taste & adjust to you’re liking)
  • zest of 1/2 lemon

Glaze

  • 1 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • zest of 1/2 lemon 

Instructions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, granulated sugar, lemon extract, and lemon zest.
  2. Beat on medium-high speed until mixture comes together.
  3. Unroll crescent roll dough into triangles; spoon cream cheese filling onto wider end of each triangle.
  4. Gently roll the dough, starting with the wider end and tucking the corners, into crescent shapes. (make sure the ends are closed)
  5. Place 2 inches apart on a lightly greased or parchment – lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Let rolls cool on a wire rack.
  8. Once cool, prepare glaze by combining all ingredients until smooth.
  9. Drizzle glaze evenly over rolls.
