Ingredients

FOR CRESCENT RING

  • 16 oz Crescent Rolls (2 cans)
  • 8 oz Softened Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Almond Extract (optional)
  • 1/4 cup Slivered Almonds for garnish (optional)

FOR STRAWBERRY SYRUP

  • 1 lb Strawberries
  • 1/4 cup Sugar

SUGAR GLAZE - OPTIONAL

Instructions

PREPARE THE STRAWBERRY SYRUP

  • Combine sugar and strawberries in a pan.
  • Mix 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

  • 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.
  • Carefully lift and tuck this part under the sheets.
  • The finished crescent ring will look like this.
  • 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.

Notes

 
Possibilities are unlimited!
This crescent ring tastes great with any fruit. Some other options are - 
  • 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. 
 
Tips to consider, what could possibly go wrong!
  • 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.
