24 Days of Christmas – Day 4

The crescent cookie. It’s totally a thing, you guys.

Ok, maybe some of you call them pinwheels. I did too, last year, when I made an eggnog version. But I’m totally calling them cookies this year because that’s how we ate them. And anytime you can combine crescent rolls with dessert, they need a dessert name.

Regardless of what you call them, I’m telling you right now that you just need to make them. Your family will love you for it.

When Pillsbury came to me, asking me to come up with a twist on their very popular Chocolate-Filled Crescents, my mind immediately turned to crescent cookies. I could barely wait to get into the kitchen to make this easy dessert (or they would go on a brunch table very well!). Just imagine buttery crescent rolls, filled with a sweetened cream cheese mixture and mini chocolate chips. Top them off with a simple glaze to make them beautiful and delicious.

Now that my daughter is getting older, she is all about being in the kitchen with me. And these cookies are just so easy that she could do most of the steps herself! Here is just how easy they are to make:

Start off by making the filling – a simple combination of cream cheese, sugar and vanilla.

Unroll the crescent dough and separate it into 2 long rectangles. Press the seams together, and press them out until they are about 12×4 inches each.

Spread the cream cheese mixture over each of the rectangles.

And then sprinkle them with the mini chocolate chips.

Starting on the short side, roll each of the rectangles up.

Take a serrated knife and cut each of the rolls into 6 pieces to form 12 cookies.

Lay the cookies cut side down on a baking sheet.

And bake them until they are golden brown! They might look puffed up when you take them out of the oven (more like a cinnamon roll), but as they cool, they will go back down. Let them cool.

To finish them off, make a simple glaze of powdered sugar and milk and drizzle it over the cooled cookies. And that’s it!!

Your family will seriously be begging for the last cookie. I know my husband was quite disappointed when these were gone (which didn’t take long!!)
