7 Simple Ingredients
Don’t you just love crescent roll dough? It is perfect for this recipe and the best shortcut! I mean, who has time to make dough from scratch during the holidays? Hand me the pre-made dough, please!
The strawberry filling is just as easy, too – just buy a can of strawberry pie filling!
It takes just a few minutes to make the cheesecake filling – it’s just a combination of softened cream cheese, sugar, and almond extract.
How to Make the Cheesecake Filling
It’s important to start with softened cream cheese for this step – I usually leave the cream cheese out overnight so it’s room temperature by the next morning.
To make the cheesecake filling, mix the softened cream cheese, sugar, and almond extract until well combined and smooth.
How to Make a Crescent Breakfast Ring
Step 1: Unroll the crescent dough and separate it into triangles.
Step 2: Place the triangles on a greased baking sheet so that the wide part of the triangles overlap in the center with the tips of the triangles pointing away from it. There should be a four-inch opening in the center. Seal the overlapping dough by pressing the pieces together.
Step 3: Spoon the pie filling over the wide part of the triangles. Top it with the cream cheese mixture.
Step 4: Fold the pointed ends of the triangles over the filling, tucking the ends under to form a ring. You should see the filling poking out – it won’t be completely covered.
Bake the breakfast crescent ring for 20 to 25 minutes at 350°F or until the dough is baked through and golden brown. Let it cool for five minutes before adding the glaze.
Finish It with the Glaze!
While it bakes make the glaze by combining powdered sugar with some milk. Drizzle it over the warm crescent ring.
