Step 1

Heat oven to 350°F.

Combine dry gelatin mix, lemon zest and 1/2 cup sugar.

Unroll 1 can crescent dough onto work surface; firmly press perforations and seams together to form 12x4-inch rectangle. Brush with half the butter, then sprinkle with half the gelatin mixture. Roll up, starting at one short end; cut into 6 slices. Arrange, cut-sides up, in half of 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Repeat with remaining dough, butter and gelatin mixture.

Bake 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix cream cheese, lemon juice and remaining sugar until blended. Drizzle cream cheese glaze over warm rolls.

Reheating Leftovers:
Place 1 roll on paper towel. Microwave on HIGH 15 seconds or just until warmed.

How to Easily Cut the Rolls:
Place piece of dental floss thread under the rolled-up dough. Bring the floss up around the dough and cross it over the top to cut through the dough and filling.
