  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup plus 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, divided
  • 1 can (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 2 teaspoons 2% milk


  1. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar until smooth. Unroll crescent dough and separate into 4 rectangles; seal perforations. Cut each rectangle in half, making 8 squares.
  2. Transfer squares to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spread 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture diagonally across each square. Top with 1 tablespoon jam. Bring 2 opposite corners of dough over filling; pinch together firmly to seal.
  3. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Combine milk and remaining 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar; drizzle over pastries. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers.
