Disappearing Cream Cheese Croissant

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cans Pillsbury Crescent Dinner Rolls
  • 8 ounces Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • Sugar/Cinnamon mixture (1/4 cup sugar mixed with 1 tablespoon cinnamon)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter or margarine


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly spray a 9 x 13-inch pan with cooking spray.
  2. Gently unroll 1 can of crescents and keeping sections joined, press into bottom of pan.
  3. Cream together cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar by cooking in microwave for 45 seconds on HIGH, then stir until smooth. Spread evenly on crescent layer. Layer second can of crescents over cream cheese. Sprinkle sugar/cinnamon mixture evenly on this layer. Melt butter in microwave evenly for 1 minute at 50% power, then pour evenly on top.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes.

Variations: You may sprinkle 1/2 cup chopped pecans on top before adding butter if desired. May add diced fresh apples (3/4 cup) or a small can well drained crushed pineapple to cream cheese mixture.

If you add fruit, you will need to increase baking time an extra 5 minutes.
