Reviews for Cherry Cream Crescents
"Very easy to make. Lower fat cream cheese and crescent rolls work fine for this. The cream cheese mixture and pie filling were twice as much as I needed. Gotta make another batch, oh darn. Different pie fillings such as blueberry work well in this too. I tried to put more berries than goo in them to keep them from being too messy. They're still a little tricky to transfer from the counter to parchment-lined baking sheets. The egg whites brushed on make a beautiful glazed finish just like the picture. I accidentally got a little egg yolk in the glaze once, but it still looked nice. I'd pair this with coffee rather than wine as suggested above."
"I have made this many times before and it is fantastic! Instead of individual servings, I line a 9X13 pan with cresecent rolls and spread with both fillings, topping it off with the 2nd tube of crescent rolls. This prevents all the oozing and is really easy to serve in slices!"
"My family absolutely would not believe it only took less than half an hour to make these. I had to thaw the cream cheese in some warm water but it was still a big hit. I made these as a quick breakfast before going to the zoo for a spring break!"
"Served this at my neighborhood coffee and the ladies thought it was very good. Easy and quick. Will try reduced fat rolls and reduced fat cream cheese next time to save a few calories."
"A wonderful easy recipe I was able to do with my daughter! But we filled these so much we had the filling oozing all over the place and still had enough filling for an extra can of crescent rolls...not that anyone complained about having more of these to eat! :)"
"It is so easy. I've made them for 2 years now and they are always quick to go"
