These Lemon Cream Cheese Crescents are a lemon lovers dream ! I could not stop eating these. Really I couldn’t . These buttery flaky crescents just melt in you mouth.  The filling is full of lemon flavor but slightly sweet. I originally made these for a weekend brunch but it turned into a snack and even a dessert . Really this little crescents are very versatile an super easy to make.

Growing up I remember falling in love with a simple lemon ice box pie my mother would make. You know the easy one made with sweetened condensed milk and in a pre-made graham cracker crust. My mom wasn’t much of a pie maker so this was the extent of her pie making skills .  Every since then I have been bonkers over anything lemon. These Lemon Cream Cheese Crescents are so good you will find excuses to make them . They are really better slightly warm , so once they are room temp just pop them in the microwave a few minutes.

Making these little jewels are a cinch and kind of fun. Even if you are not a pro at rolling them they come out just fine.  Start off by lining a large baking sheet with parchment paper and preheating the oven to 350 degrees. If you haven’t noticed I am a huge fan of parchment paper, everything bakes better on it.  Next In a mixing bowl combine cream cheese, lemon curd, lemon zest , lemon juice and 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar. Beat with a wire whisk until smooth. Unroll crescent rolls and separate all 16 crescent triangles.  Place 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture on the widest part of the triangle . Then roll the crescents up beginning with the widest end and end with the narrow end underneath. Roll all 16 crescents and place them on lined baking sheet.

Steps of how to how to make filling an roll crescents

Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Allow crescents to cool for a few minutes and use a spatula and move them to a wire cooling rack. Sift powdered sugar lightly and serve.

These look so good. I can imaging that the addition of lemon must make these even more desirable.

You must have read my mind! I was looking for something lemony, because, like you, I’m a sucker for anything lemon (no pun intended) and this seemed to fit the bill. It was super easy and a great treat to serve for breakfast. And, of course, perfectly puckery, just the way I like it.

This is a wonderful idea!! I love the taste of lemon and as a filling for the crescent rolls makes it irresistible. This cute rolls would be ideal at the Sunday brunch we’re having in two weeks. Thank you for the recipe.

How long can you keep these in fridge? Can they be frozen?
