Sweet Cream Cheese Stuffed Crescent Rolls

Breakfast is served and it's delicious! These fun stuffed crescents are almost like an inside out cinnamon roll with the frosting on the inside.

     Crescent rolls stuffed with lightly sweetened cream cheese are a perfect treat. They are great for breakfast with a cup of coffee. The best part is they are super easy to put together.  You can be enjoying a flaky pastry in almost no time.


   I am a big fan of flaky breakfast pastries with fruit, cream cheese or custardy filling. We have a local bakery that is famous for them.

     Their danishes take hours of rising and adding layers of butter between layers of dough. They are absolutely worth every bit of time and effort.

      However I am not at a point in my life where spending that much time and effort on breakfast makes sense. And I'm not always in the mood (or dressed appropriately) to venture out into the public first thing in the morning.

      So making a rough approximation at home is the way to go. These are much less fancy, but super delicious nonetheless.

    I would be perfectly comfortable whipping some up for overnight house guests to wake up to. They are worth sitting down and enjoying but also perfectly easy to hrab on the go!

   These come together fast and easy.  It is a nice way to have a quick, warm, sweet breakfast without it being to heavy or filling.

     It would also be a nice way to end a day if you just want something easy and sweet.  There are only a few ingredients and chances are you already have most of them.

   But if you want one, you better claim it fast.  They go quickly!

Optional stir ins:


A little cinnamon stirred into the cream cheese adds a little cinnamon roll flare. Or sprinkle the dough with cinnamon sugar before rolling it around the cream cheese for a stuffed cinnamon roll vibe.

Try adding just a bit of fruit preserves to the cream cheese. Strawberries and cream danishes anyone? Yes please!

Mini chocolate chips would be another fun add in. Holy stuffed crescent cannoli!

There are so many great eays you could adjust this recipe to make them extra fun! What are you going to try first?

Watch Little Dude and me whip up a batch of yummy cream cheese stuffed crescent rolls on YouTube so you can see just how easy it is!

  5. I make something similar but use flavored cream cheese like blueberry. And I just lay out the crescent dough, spread the cream cheese over all, roll up the dough cinnamon roll style,cut & bake. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
