Paula Deen said on some episode I watched, Crescent Rolls “can take you from breakfast straight through dessert!” and I never open a roll of crescents with out thinking of that!  This is a fast and easy dessert that’s great for a week night or a special breakfast.

They’re a little sweet, a little tart, but really good, and in about 15 to 20 minutes dessert is done!

Start with crescent rolls, cream cheese, honey, lemon juice and sugar.  There’s powder sugar in the big mason jar and butter that we’ll use later.

Mix your sugar, cream cheese, lemon juice and honey in a bowl, roll out your crescent dough and push together the seams as much as possible and spread your cream cheese mixture on top

Pop them in a 350 degree oven for 15 to 18 minutes.  While they’re baking make the glaze to go on top.  Take 2 TBSP of butter and mix with 1/2 cup of powder sugar and 1 TBSP lemon juice in a bowl and when you take your roll ups out of the oven spoon over the top

Place on a greased sheet pan cut side down and bake for 15 to 18 minutes.
