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!

Cherry Cream Cheese Crescent Ring | A Mother Thing

Ingredients

2 tubes of crescent rolls
3 ounces of cream cheese, softened
3 teaspoons powdered sugar
¼ teaspoon vanilla bean paste
1 cup cherry pie filling

For glaze:

2 tablespoons heavy cream or milk
1 cup powdered sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 375*

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

Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Lay out crescent rolls so that the pointed ends are facing away from the center. You will have a circle in the middle of the cookie sheet. You may need to use a small bowl to achieve this.

Pull the pointed ends of the crescent rolls over the filling and tuck the ends under the center of the ring. You will see some of the filling but that’s okay.
