- 1 8 oz package of Neufchatel cheese (1/3 less calories than cream cheese)
- 1/2 c sugar
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 cans Crescent seamless dough sheets
- 4 (or more) tbsp of your favorite fruit preserve (my recipe follows)
- 1 tsp vanilla (I used rum extract because I had no vanilla in the house)
- 1/2-1 c powdered sugar (depending on how runny you like your glaze)
- 2-3 tsp milk (I used about a tablespoon or 2 with about 1 c of powdered sugar)
|My imperfectly perfect spiral coils|
- In a small bowl, blend Neufchatel, sugar and lemon juice.
- Roll out crescent dough, one can at a time, and cut into 4 rectangles.
- Spread rectangles of dough with about 3 tbsp of the cream cheese mixture.
- Starting at long side, gently roll and twist at the same time until the roll is about 10 inches long. Coil loosely into spirals with seam inside. Seal ends (ok, I am not a perfectionist and my rolls aren't all that neat, but they sure look good!)
- There should be an indentation in the middle of the coil, but use your thumb to make it slightly larger and fill with half a tablespoon or so of preserves (we like lots of filling).
- Arrange on parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 25 to 30 minutes (until deep golden brown)
|The cream cheese is oozing out - more ooey gooey deliciousness!|
Mix the powdered sugar, rum or vanilla extract and milk. Drizzle over warm rolls. Serve and enjoy!
