So Simple and Yummy

Looking for dessert that is simple and delicious?

So was I. And happened upon this gem.


3 cans crescent rolls
1 can cherry pie filling
1- 8 oz pkg softened cream cheese
2/3 cup powdered sugar

Use 1½ cans crescent rolls. Unroll dough and place on a cookie sheet. Press all edges together to form a single crust.  Mix cream cheese and powdered sugar and spread over dough. Next dump your can of pie filling on top. I used cherry but I'm sure any fruit filling would be good. Spread to within an inch of the edges of crust.  Taking the remaining 1½ cans of crescent rolls separate the dough into triangles and start placing them on top making sure to cover the sides first and then press lightly along the edges to keep your pie filling from running out while baking.

Place remaining dough triangles on top any way you like. A few cracks between triangles only makes it look even better once it's baked.

Bake at 350┬║ for 25-30 minutes until beautifully golden brown. Let cool and make an icing with 1 cup powdered sugar and 1½ Tbsp milk. Drizzle on top.   Enjoy!

I didn't have enough patience and poured the icing on before it had been cooled enough which made it run together and drip off the sides. It didn't affect the taste though.

    I'm enjoying your stories--It's so sad people need to hurt others in their jealousy. They are to be pitied.

  7. This looks absolutely delicious. And easy enough for me to make when I'm too busy for something more complicated. Which is 99% of the time.

    Thanks for sharing.

  16. Great recipe....now the question is how to get Pillsbury or whoever to import crescent rolls to South Africa! As an American living here since 1990, I just say to others: cherish things like crescent rolls in the freezer section of supermarkets. We have supermarkets of course over here, but not always everything in them that I grew up with! I like baking from scratch, but my teens marvel when I say that I grew up with Slice n Bake cookie dough and ready to use pie crusts. Though I know how to make my own, I grab every Pillsbury ready-to-spread icing I see on the shelves here to store in my pantry for convenience. We do have frozen puff pastry and philo pastry etc, so I'm sure I could adapt your marvellous recipe!

  23. That sounds so delicious and easy! I have a HUGE can of cherry pie filling that I need to use on something. That sounds like the ticket. ;)

    I don't know if you're aware that Pillsbury now has crescent roll dough for recipes. It's all in one sheet so that you don't have to pinch the edges of the triangles together. I was very excited when I saw it at the store. :)
