King Cake with Cream Cheese Filling
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min.
Crescent rolls do not really make a good substitute, the flavor just isn't the same. I used puff pastry sheets with the cream cheese filling and everyone liked it.
I used to live in the New Orleans area and this is a pretty good substitute for the real thing. Much easier than making the sweet yeast dough. Best served warm. You could also leave out the cinnamon/brown sugar mix add a little fruit pie filling such as cherries, apples, blueberries, or peaches. Just don't over fill it.
