Ingredients

  • 1

    package (8-count) refrigerated crescent rolls

  • 4

    ounces cream cheese, cold

  • 2

    tablespoons granulated sugar

  • 1/2

    teaspoon lemon extract

  • Zest 1/2 lemon

  • GLAZE:

  • 1

    cup powdered sugar

  • 2

    tablespoons lemon juice

  • Zest 1/2 lemon

Directions

In a medium mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, granulated sugar, lemon extract, and lemon zest. Beat on medium-high speed until mixture comes together. Unroll crescent roll dough into triangles; spoon cream cheese filling onto wider end of each triangle. Gently roll the dough, starting with the wider end and tucking the corners, into crescent shapes. Place 2 inches apart on a lightly greased or parchment -lined baking sheet. Bake at 375°F for 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Let rolls cool on a wire rack. Once cool, prepare glaze by combining all ingredients until smooth. Drizzle glaze evenly over rolls.
