Lemon-Cream Cheese Crescent Ring Recipe

Crescent Ring

  • 1 package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ Crescent Recipe Creations™ refrigerated seamless dough sheet or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons milk


  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray. In small bowl, mix cream cheese, granulated sugar, lemon juice and lemon peel with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.
  2. Unroll dough sheet. (If using crescent rolls, unroll dough and separate into 2 large rectangles. Overlap long sides to form 13×7-inch rectangle; firmly press edges and perforations to seal.) Spread cream cheese mixture on rectangle to within 1/2 inch of edges.
  3. Starting with 1 long side of rectangle, roll up; pinch edge to seal.
  4. With serrated knife, cut into 12 slices.
  5. Arrange slices on cookie sheet in a circle, overlapping slightly.
  6. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. In small bowl, mix Glaze ingredients until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over warm crescent ring.

*Sprinkle the crescent ring with powdered sugar in place of the glaze if you like.
*You can prepare the crescent ring up to 2 hours ahead of time; cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate. Add a few extra minutes to the bake time.

    i’m confused. the recipe says 3 oz of cream cheese, but the picture looks more like an 8 oz block. were you doubling the recipe?

      I believe the right side of the picture is sugar, not cream cheese. If you look really close I think that’s what you’ll see too.
