Chocolate Chip Crescent Cookies
Total Time: 30 minutes
- Prep: 10 minutes
- Cook: 20 minutes
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations
- 1/4 cup miniature chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 2 teaspoons milk
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
In a bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add in the sugar and vanilla and beat to combine.
If using crescent rolls, unroll the dough and separate into 2 long rectangles. Press each into a 12x4-inch rectangle and press the perforations to seal. If using dough sheet, unroll dough and cut lenghtwise into 2 rectangles. Press each into a 12x4-inch rectangle.
Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the top of the dough. Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over. Starting on the short side, roll up each rectangle and press the edge to seal. With a serrated knife, cut each roll into 6 slices; place cut side down on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove the cookies from the baking sheet and allow to cool completely.
In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar and milk. Drizzle over the cooled cookies.
To change it up, drizzle with chocolate frosting instead of the glaze.
Serve as a snack or as part of a breakfast or brunch buffet.
