These would also work well if filled with your favorite jam/jelly, perserves or pie filling. Even a basic cheesecake recipe (cut in half) would be great!
- If you can't find Crescent Rounds, a flaky refrigerated dinner roll would work in it's place.
- Brush the tops with melted butter for better browning and nice crisp exterior.
- Instead of the homemade glaze, I drizzled the top with about 3 tablespoons of prepared vanilla frosting that I "melted" in the microwave for about 10 seconds. It was super easy and worked great!
- I liked these better after they had cooled completly. I had one at breakfast and thought it was good, I had another as a snack about 6 hours later and loved it. I think these might be best if made the night before and allowed to cool overnight.
2 rolls Crescent Rounds
Powdered Sugar Glaze, recipe below (optional)
Pre-bake Crescent Rounds in a lightly greased, glass baking dish, at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until they just begin to brown (don't over-bake). Press down on the center of each crescent round to create a well or indentation in the middle. Set aside. In a mixing bowl, cream together the cream cheese, butter, brown sugar and maple syrup. Beat in the egg. Spoon mixture into center of each round. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly and drizzle with glaze. Let cool completely before serving, filling will be HOT.
Powdered Sugar Glaze
1 cup Powdered Sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1-2 tablespoons milk
In a medium bowl combine powdered sugar with vanilla and milk, 1 tablespoon at a time. Blend until smooth.
