Flaky dough with sugar and cinnamon and super yummy cheese filling with a hint of lemon, what not to love? It can be eaten warm with ice cream or chilled.

Choice is completely yours. :)

And preparation is almost effortless. No need to cook the cream cheese filling. Just zest the lemons and mix it with cream cheese and sugar.

      Hi Julie,
      Thank you for your interest and thank you for taking the time to comment. |Yes, amounts of cheese, sugar, butter and crescent dough are the same like in other recipes that can be find on internet (from Mommy’s kitchen to Pillsbury site)
      But if you read carefully you will see that my recipe has one BIG difference. :)
