This is one of those pastries that is actually realistic to make. You buy a couple cans of crescent rolls, a can of strawberry pie filling, and whip together a cream cheese filling… that’s it! You’ll have it in the oven in less than 10 minutes.
I love crescent roll pastries they’re simply delicious and you can beat how simple they are to put together. If you need something sweet for a summer afternoon tea or a quick weekend breakfast, whip this up and I promise you’ll be glad.
Here’s My Notes:
1)Honestly this recipe is so easy I don’t really have any notes, but I would say… I like eating this when it’s completely cooled. Give it a good 30 minutes to cool before serving.
Strawberry Cream Cheese Pastry Ring
Yields: approx. 8 servings
2 (8 ounce) tube crescent rolls
1 (21 ounce) can strawberry pie filling
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon heavy cream
1 Tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 cup sliced almonds, (you could toast them if you like)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Unroll the crescent dough and separate into triangles. Arrange the triangles on the prepared cookie sheet with the points of the triangles pointing towards the outside and the wide ends overlapping at the center. Press the overlapping dough to seal.
In a medium size mixing bowl beat the cream cheese and sugar together using a handheld mixer. Add in vanilla.
Spoon the strawberry pie filling over the crescents rolls, keeping it on the widest part. top it with the cream cheese filling. To bring the ring together fold the pointed ends over the filling, tucking it under. The filling with be visible.
Bake the pastry in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown; mine took 30 minutes. Allow to cool for about 20 minutes before glazing.
While pastry cools prepare your glaze by simple mixing the powdered sugar, cream, almond extract, and butter together in a small bowl with fork. Drizzle over the cooled pastry ring and sprinkle with almonds. Enjoy!
