Cherry Crescent Ring

You all know I’m totally obsessed with crescent rings by now, yes? Good. Then it’ll come as no surprise when I keep on posting recipes for them! This one is probably one of my very favorites. It’s a great alternative to the traditional cherry pie, and it’s a great addition to any party or family gathering. Since it’s a crescent ring, you KNOW it’s super simple to make, and honestly, you more than likely have most of the ingredients on hand right now.

It tastes somewhere between a cherry turnover and a cherry cheesecake. The creamy, tangy cream cheese brings this recipe to another level of flavor and texture, and I guarantee it’s a big hit for the kids, too!

Directions

Preheat oven to 375*

In a small bowl beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla bean paste until smooth.
