Lemon Cheesecake Crescent Rolls

  • 1 package 8 count refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 4 oz. cream cheese cold
  • 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. lemon extract
  • zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • zest of 1/2 lemon
In a medium mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, granulated sugar, lemon extract, and lemon zest.
Beat on medium-high speed until mixture comes together. Unroll crescent roll dough into triangles; spoon cream cheese filling onto wider end of each triangle.
Gently roll the dough, starting with the wider end and tucking the corners, into crescent shapes. Place 2 inches apart on a lightly greased or parchment -lined baking sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Let rolls cool on a wire rack. Once cool, prepare glaze by combining all ingredients until smooth. Drizzle glaze evenly over rolls.
