  • 1 tube crescent roll dough
  • 6 oz softened cream cheese low fat can be subbed
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp toasted sliced almonds
  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray or grease the bottom of either an 8 x 8-inch or 9 x 9-inch pan.
  • Beat the softened cream cheese with the 2 tbs sugar until very smooth.
  • Unroll the crescent dough and separate into 8 individual triangles. Divide the cream cheese mixture evenly among the 8 triangles and spread the mixture over the entire triangle. Sprinkle with the toasted almonds reserving about 1 tbs for topping. Roll up each triangle as for a crescent roll.
  • Place 4 rolls evenly down one side of the pan, place the other 4 rolls evenly down the other side of the pan. (the placement should look like 2 columns of a newspaper)
  • Melt the butter in the microwave. Mix the 1 tbs sugar with the cinnamon.
  • Brush the tops of each crescent roll with the butter. Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar and remaining toasted almonds.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from pan and cool. May be eaten warm or chilled.
  • Serves 8
