This recipe makes two rings, so you can keep one yourself and take one to share!

Here’s what you’ll need:

2 cans Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
1 block cream cheese
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
1 can apple pie filling
1 cup powdered sugar, divided (¼ c and ¾ c)
¼ cup heavy cream (for glaze)

To begin, preheat oven to 350. Spray cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.

Combine cream cheese, ¼ cup powdered sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla bean paste in a bowl. If your cream cheese is soft enough, you might be able to use a spoon. I used a mixer.

Arrange crescent rolls on cookie sheet like shown. If you need help making a circle, place a small bowl in the center and use it as a guide.

Spread cream cheese mixture on crescent rolls, towards the center, leaving a little edge uncovered so you can fold the roll together at that point.

Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Your oven time will vary, so just check it every few minutes (without opening the oven!) after you reach 15 minutes or so.

To make the glaze, combine remaining ¾ cup powdered sugar and ¼ cup heavy cream with a whisk. Drizzle over the top. Serve warm.

How beautiful is this? It’s such a rustic dessert, and it really appeals to the country girl in me. It’s like something my grandmother would make on a cold winter day to appease the visiting grandkids when they wouldn’t sit down and shut up.

I think it’s also a great breakfast dish, as it is warm and comforting and has a sort of cheese danish vibe to it, which is never a bad thing!
