  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 pkg Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream together sugar and cream cheese.
  • Beat in egg yolk and vanilla.
  • Unroll the crescent roll dough onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Separate the dough into four squares.
  • Spread the cream cheese mixture onto each square.
  • Gently fold in each of the corners of the dough.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden brown.


Be generous with the filling, there will still be a little leftover. You can double this recipe, but still only use one egg yolk.
