"This beautiful breakfast ring is perfect for a special occasion," writes Wendy Fitzgerald from her home in Eau Claire, Michigan. Whether formed into a festive wreath or shaped into two rectangles, it's so yummy that no one will ever suspect the sweet treat starts with convenient crescent rolls.

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min. + cooling
MAKES: 16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1/3 cup chopped almonds, toasted
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • Sliced almonds

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and orange peel until blended; set aside.
  2. Unroll both tubes of dough; press perforations and seams together to form two rectangles. Overlap rectangles at one end and press the seam to seal. Spread cream cheese mixture over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Sprinkle with the chopped almonds.
  3. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet; pinch ends together to form a ring. With scissors, cut from outside edge two-thirds of the way toward center of ring at 1-in. intervals. Separate strips slightly; twist to allow filling to show. Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before carefully removing from pan to a wire rack.
  4. Combine confectioners' sugar and orange juice; drizzle over warm coffee cake. Garnish with sliced almonds. Yield: 1 coffee cake, 16 servings.

I've used this recipe for a bridal shower and also for family gatherings. It is always a hit! You can make it first thing in the morning and it holds well for several hours before serving. I add the orange glaze right before I serve it to guests. I've also cut the recipe in half and made a smaller ring for two people. Delicious!

Very nice twist on breakfast roll! I didn't go to all the fancy trouble as it was just for a saturday morning breakfast, but rolled into the log and cut on the angle.
