How to make this Strawberry Cream Cheese Crescent Ring?
This crescent ring is a phenomenal recipe full of possibilities. Simply roll out the dough and fill with your favorite filling. They can be baked into a sweet treat or can be transformed into a delicious appetizer. Start by preparing the strawberry syrup. Combine strawberries and sugar in a bowl and boil until it reduces to half its size. Set aside to cool completely.
Syrup will become thick once cooled. Meanwhile, prepare the cream cheese filling. Combine cream cheese, almond extract, and sugar in a bowl and beat until creamy and fluffy.
Time to assemble – open the can of crescent rolls. Carefully separate the triangles and arrange them in a circle on a baking tray. Put the cream cheese filling followed by thick strawberry syrup, seal the rolls, bake and enjoy!

PREPARE THE STRAWBERRY SYRUP
- Combine sugar and strawberries in a pan.

- Set aside to cool completely. Syrup will become thick once cooled.
- Meanwhile, prepare the cream cheese filling. Combine cream cheese, almond extract, and sugar in a bowl and beat until creamy and fluffy.
TIME TO ASSEMBLE
- Preheat oven @350 degrees F. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Carefully separate the triangles and arrange them in a circle on a baking tray.
- Put the cream cheese filling
- Followed by thick strawberry syrup.
- Fold the triangle part of the crescent sheet over the cream cheese.

- Bake @350 degree F for 20-25 minutes.
- Combine 1 cup powdered sugar + 2 tablespoon water in a bowl, whisk until well blended. Drizzle over the crescent ring.
- Generously top with sliced almonds.
- The great thing about a crescent ring is that it is easy to cut and can be served in slices! Treat your mom with a sweet treat today.
- Fresh cherries, apples, and blueberries. Any of these fruit combinations will work wonders with cream cheese.
- To cut short on time, you can use store-bought pie filling cans for this recipe.
- Can't find fresh strawberries, no worries try frozen strawberries. This recipe works great with frozen fruit too.
- Before you advance with filling the ring, make sure your strawberry syrup is of a thick consistency. If it is on a liquid side then it will mess up the full recipe.
- Seal and secure the ends of crescent rolls tightly underneath the ring. This will give a clean finished look.
- The final sugar glaze is optional though it tastes amazing. Feel free to simply top these ring with slivered almonds and enjoy as is without the sugar glaze.
