Cherry Cheese Dessert Ring


  • 2 (8 oz.) pkgs. refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla or almond extract
  • 21 oz. can cherry pie filling


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Unroll crescent dough and arrange 12 triangles in a circle with wide ends toward the outside edge of a large round baking stone – the points will not meet in the center. Lightly flour and roll out the seams making a 14” circle with a 3” hole in the center. Combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar, egg and vanilla and spread over dough. Top with pie filling. Cut each of the 4 remaining triangles into thirds (starting at the wide end opposite the point and cutting lengthwise to the point). Arrange over filling evenly in spoke-like pattern. Press ends to seal at center and outer edges. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool before serving.
