Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 16 crescents



  • 6 oz Hiland Dairy cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. almond extract
  • 1 tsp fresh orange zest
  • 2 rolls 8-count each refrigerated crescent roll dough


  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. fresh orange zest
  • 2 Tbs. Hiland Dairy melted butter
  • 1/4 tsp. almond extract
  • 3-4 tsp. Hiland Dairy orange juice


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Unroll crescent roll dough and separate into triangles. 

  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, extract, and orange zest until smooth. Divide the prepared cream cheese mixture between the 16 triangles, leaving a 1/8” border. 

  3. Starting at the widest part of each triangle of dough, roll up each one. Place each crescent onto a greased baking sheet, leaving a bit of space between each one.   Bake crescents, uncovered, for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown.

  4. While rolls are baking, combine all glaze ingredients in a small bowl and mix until smooth, adding the orange juice a bit at a time, as needed.  

  5. Remove crescents from the oven and immediately drizzle with the prepared glaze. Serve warm.
