Ingredients

3 ounces of cream cheese, softened
¼ cup sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1 can crescent rolls

Glaze:

½ cup powdered sugar
3 teaspoons milk

Directions

Preheat oven to 350, and then spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, beat sugar, cream cheese, lemon juice, and lemon peel until smooth.

Do not separate the crescent rolls; you’re going to roll them out into one big sheet of dough. Unroll them, and then lay them lengthwise so you make one long sheet. Be sure to pinch the dough together.

Spoon cream cheese mixture onto the dough and spread evenly, leaving about ½ inch around the sides where there is no cream cheese. You can add more lemon peel if you like.

Gently roll the dough up from the end creating a tube.

Pinch the ends of the tube together so the filling doesn’t escape. Refrigerate roll for 10-15 minutes, so you can cut it without everything seeping out.

Using a serrated knife, cut the tube of dough into about 12 slices. Arrange the slices into a circle. Their edges should be touching, but they don’t need to overlap.

Are you drooling yet?? These taste kind of like a lemon danish that you buy at the store. And because they are baked like this, they easily separate, making serving them really simple. I don’t know about you, but if I have to cut things, my kids will fight over who got the bigger slice! So this one is so much easier.  It tastes great straight out of the oven, but I love it when it actually sits a while. Refrigerate any leftovers, as it is AH-MAZING cold.
