Strawberry Lemon Crescent Ring
This post may contain affiliate links.
This fast and easy ring continues on my strawberry theme with lemon and cream cheese incorporated for a tangy pop.
If you want to mix it up and use blueberries or raspberries instead of strawberries, omit or swap the lemon for orange, it’s a flexible enough recipe to go with what you enjoy most.
The best part is that it uses one of my favorite baking shortcuts – a tube of refrigerated crescent rolls. If you’re lucky enough to find seamless crescent roll sheets use them because you don’t have to pinch together the perforations like you do with regular crescent rolls.
But either way this is a cinch of a dessert to make and is ready in 30 minutes from start to finish.
After baking the ring may fall a bit but that’s okay because you’re going to add fresh strawberries over the top which covers up any imperfections. I love the combination of both baked and fresh berries in this recipe.
The lemon glaze perfectly compliments the berries and we adored it. This is a keeper for a holiday brunch like Mother’s Day or for a casual summer potluck.
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened (lite is okay)
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest, or to taste
- one 8-ounce can crescent roll dough sheet or one 8-ounce can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
- 1 cup fresh strawberries, diced small; divided
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1 to 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- Crescent Ring – Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat or aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray; set aside.
- To a small bowl, add the cream cheese, granulated sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, and mix with a handheld electric mixer on medium-high speed until well blended; set aside.
- Unroll the dough sheet. If using crescent rolls, unroll dough and separate into 2 large rectangles. Overlap the long sides to form a 13×7-inch rectangle, and firmly press the edges and perforations to seal.
- Spread cream cheese mixture over the large rectangle leaving a 1/2-inch bare margin around the perimeter.
- Evenly sprinkle 1/2 cup strawberries over the dough.
- Starting with a long side of the rectangle, roll up, and pinch the edge to seal.
- Using a serrated knife, cut into 12 slices.
- Arrange slices on prepared baking sheet in a circle so that they’re touching slightly.
- Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Allow ring to cool on baking sheet while you make the glaze.
- Lemon Glaze – To a small bowl, add the confectioners’ sugar and slowly add the lemon juice until it’s the proper consistency for drizzling.
- Before glazing, evenly sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup strawberries over the ring.
- Evenly drizzle the glaze over the ring and serve immediately. Ring is best warm and fresh.
