Cream Cheese Crescents
Why I Love This Recipe
This came from a friend and is very simple with few ingredients
Ingredients You'll Need
1 (3 oz.) package cream cheese, room temperature.
3 Tbl. granulated sugar
1/4 teasp. almond extract
1 teasp. finely grated orange peel
1 (8 oz.) tube Pillsbury crescent rolls.
1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbl. orange juice
1 Tbl. melted butter
1/4 tsp. almond extract
2 tsp. finely grated orange peel
Pre-heat oven to 350F.
Combine all filling ingredients and mix well. Lay out the individual crescent rolls and divide filling among them, spreading to within 1/4" of the edge. Roll up, starting at long end. Place on a baking sheet (I cover my sheet with parchment) and bake for about 15 minutes, till golden brown. Combine topping ingredients in a small bowl.
spread still-warm crescents with topping, and remove to rack to cool.
If you wish, you can sprinkle these with a few toasted sliced almonds.
