Simple, and incredibly delicious! These were a hit at our house party!
Start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees, and gathering your ingredients list.
I make a double batch of these every time because they disappear quickly! If you need less, simply halve this recipe!
2 cans of crescent roll dough (16 ct total rolls)
(1) 8oz block of cream cheese
Zest of 1 lemon
4 Tbsp granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. lemon extract
1 Package of Blackberries
1 cup powdered sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
Zest of 1 lemon
In a medium mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, granulated sugar, lemon extract, and zest of 1 lemon.
Use a mixer on medium speed to blend these ingredients until they form a smooth mixture.
Unroll the crescent dough onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper, and use two spoons to place a dollop of cream cheese mixture onto the larger end of each triangle.
Place blackberry into the center of each cream cheese dollop.
Gently, roll crescents up and be sure to TUCK all corners and ends of the rolls so no cream cheese filling bakes out.
Place about 2 inches apart on baking sheets, and pop into the oven at 375 for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.
Let pastries cool on a wire rack while you prepare the glaze.
In a small mixing bowl, combine juice of 1 lemon with about a cup of powdered sugar. You can vary the amount of powdered sugar to suit the amount of juice, until you get a glaze consistency.
Drizzle glaze over the pastries.
Last, but not least, sprinkle the zest of 1 lemon over the glaze onto each pastry.
Serve and enjoy the delight of your guests!
