These Lemon Cheesecake Crescent Rolls are a delightful combination of tangy lemon cheesecake filling wrapped in flaky crescent dough, baked to golden perfection, and topped with a zesty lemon glaze. Perfect for a sweet breakfast treat, brunch, or dessert, these rolls are sure to brighten any occasion with their refreshing citrus flavor.



For Lemon Cheesecake Crescent Rolls:
– 1 block package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened at room temperature
– ¼ cup granulated sugar
– 4 teaspoons grated lemon peel from 1 large lemon
– 1 can (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls or crescent dough sheets
– 1 tablespoon butter, melted
For Lemon Glaze Topping:
– ½ cup powdered sugar
– 2 to 3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
– Fresh grated lemon peel for garnish (optional)


1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, granulated sugar, and grated lemon peel. Use an electric mixer on medium speed to beat until smooth and creamy.
3. Open the package of crescent rolls and carefully separate the dough into 8 individual triangles. Place them on a clean, flat surface.
4. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese lemon mixture onto the widest end of each crescent triangle, dividing it evenly among the 8 rolls.
5. Roll up the crescents, starting from the wide end and tucking the pointy end underneath. Pinch the seams closed to seal the filling inside. Repeat with the remaining crescent rolls.
6. Place the filled crescents evenly on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops with melted butter.
7. Bake on the middle rack of the preheated oven for 11–14 minutes, or until the crescents are golden brown.
8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
9. While the crescents are cooling, make the lemon glaze. In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar and 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, mixing until smooth. Add additional lemon juice, if needed, to achieve your desired glaze consistency.
10. Drizzle the lemon glaze over the warm crescent rolls. Garnish with fresh grated lemon peel, if desired. Serve warm and enjoy!

11. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
