  3. Now I see it is a measuring cup with the milk or sugar in it. When it is on Facebook it looks like an egg.

  4. Cut into thick slices? I cut roll into 6 slices. (I only did half recipe) I made healthier used 2 oz light cream cheese, 1/4 cup whipped Greek cream cheese spread & Greek yogurt,and cut white sugar in half(I use natural turbinado sugar). Skipped glaze...don't like too sweet. Looked pretty good (pushed filling up when they puffed) and tasted great. Will make again.

  6. Is that 1/4 cup total for Greek cream cheese spread & greek yougurt or 1/4 c each? Vanilla yogurt? As a Diabetic I would also use Splenda & Splenda Brown Sugar.

  8. I am a vegan and this looks like a good candidate to make vegan since the crescents are already vegan. Vegan cream cheese tastes like the real thing and since there are no eggs involved: voila! Thank you!

  9. I have made these and blended raspberry/jalpeno jelly that I make with the cream cheese and add no sugar or glaze. The jelly was sweet enough and they were really good (in our opinion). :-)

    1. Agreed! The ingredients are not in order of use. The instructions are not well written either. BUT they do look good and I'm making them now.

  14. Don't understand how to make the dough. Saw one person who cut the dough into 6 pieces. Do you just push in the centers of these pieces to make the recipe?

  16. I just made these. I am a great baker and followed this to a T. They are disgusting! The "bowls# wouldn't hold and my glaze came out brown. They are crazy sweet.
    I wish I could post a picture of my epic FAIL!!!

  17. Mine turned out great but I didn’t use the glaze. I found the recipe to be clear enough, Yes, cut each crescent roll into 6 rounds. If you let them sit a little they will warm up, then just push a small round object into the middle to hollow it out, then use your fingers. Husband liked them! I will keep the recipe as a staple. The hardest part of this recipe is getting the cream cheese to room temp while you in a hurry for breakfast!

  18. I made these and mine turned out perfectly fine.. I used peach jam and raspberry jam and the cream cheese filling..just unroll the tube,cut in half and then cut each half in three or four pieces.. use a small jar to put a hole in the middle and then use your fingers to pull the dough up a little to hold in the feeling.. they are very tasty and I have used this recipe plenty of times..😋😋😋

  19. Great recipe! And if you’re in a hurry whipped cream cheese works.
