This Cherry Cream Cheese Crescent Ring is super simple and tastes amazing. If you are feeding a crowd breakfast or even dessert, this danish type ring is going to work perfectly. Since this ring uses store bought crescent dough, it can be whipped up in no time at all.
Over the holidays, I am always anxious to make a breakfast that will feed a crowd. I shared our Easy Breakfast Braid with you a few weeks ago. It too uses store bought crescent dough and is so super simple to make. My hubby loved my Biscuits and Gravy Casserole I made for him last week. This Cherry Cream Cheese Crescent Ring is so easy, looks good, and tastes good too. I like that it makes 16 slices of pastry to serve to my family and guests.
I used cherry pie filling in our crescent ring, you could use strawberry, blueberry, or any pie filling that your heart desires. The fruit combined with the cream cheese filling works perfectly together. The crescent dough is so easy to work with and requires very little effort.
I made this crescent ring to serve for breakfast but I think it would make for a great dessert too. The sweet pie filling, cream cheese mixture, and the icing drizzled on top can make it suitable for either.
Just a few simple ingredients are needed to make this simple but eye pleasing ring. Grab two store bought cans of crescent rolls, a package of cream cheese, a can of pie filling, sugar, and vanilla. I had our ring in the oven in just a couple of minutes time.
2 cans Crescent Rolls
8 oz softened Cream Cheese
21 oz Cherry Pie Filling
1/2 cup Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
1 cup Powdered Sugar
1 tbsp Milk
Preheat oven to 350.
Beat creamy cheese with sugar and vanilla until fluffy.
Unroll crescent dough and separate.
On a pizza pan place triangles overlapping with long pointed ends outward. So that there is about a 6″ circle left in the middle of the pan.
Spread cherries over the lapped dough area.
Spread dollops of cream cheese mixture over the cherry filling.
Fold pointed ends of crescents over the filling and pinch into lapped dough to seal.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Mix Powdered sugar and milk until smooth glaze forms.
Drizzle glaze over ring.
Do you have a favorite fruit filling that you enjoy in your danishes?
