I love these, and have been making them since I was very young, an older cousin taught me a version of this recipe. She separated the crescent rolls into triangles, and put a dollop of the filling into the center of each one, then rolled them up and baked as directed on the package. She used about 4 oz of cream cheese, lemon, lemon zest, and sugar to taste. I only use a table spoon of sugar, and juice from 1/2 a lemon so they are lightly sweet, and nice and lemony. It's an easy dessert for children to help make, I like to make them with my granddaughter, she loves them, and has fun making them.
It was lovely! I read all the reviews, and decided to do something different with the bottom crust of crescent rolls. I placed Parchment paper (Dollar Tree carries it) sprayed it lightly, placed the crescents as instructed, THEN I beat a whole egg and "painted" the top of the bottom crust, added the filling, top crust i also painted with egg and topped with the sugar. Perfect! Glazed and shiny top, nice crisp bottom. Why? the Egg COOKS and makes a Moisture barrier between the filling and the bottom crust. I do this will All MY fruit filled pies, any pie actually, unless it is a refrigerator pie, of course!
