Ingredients

  • 6 ozs cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup apricot or peach preserves
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 canisters (8ozs each) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tbl sugar or powdered sugar

Instructions

  • In a medium sized bowl, mix cream cheese, preserves and vanilla. Set aside.
  • Open dough canister, remove rolls and gently unwind. Press two connected triangles together to form a rectangle. Spread each rectangle with 2 tablespoons of cream cheese mixture, leaving a 1-inch border around the edge.
  • Fold one corner of the rectangle over the middle of the filling, then fold the opposite corner over it, pressing them together to form a tight seal. Brush with egg and, if using sugar, sprinkle with sugar at this time. If your prefer powdered sugar, dust pastries as they come out of the oven.
  • Carefully transfer to baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 375° for about 12 minutes or until browned. With a metal spatula sprayed with nonstick coating spray, remove the pastries to a cooling rack for about 5 minutes. Serve warm with a little butter if you desire.
    Storing leftovers, make sure pastries are completely cooled. Wrap in plastic wrap and seal in plastic bag.
