tablespoons sugar
1
can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
2
tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
3/4

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. On cutting board sprinkled with 1 1/2 tablespoons of the sugar, separate dough into 4 rectangles; firmly press perforations to seal. Lightly press dough into sugar. Brush rectangles with about 1 tablespoon of the melted butter; sprinkle with remaining sugar. Using 2 rectangles, place one rectangle on top of the other. Starting with the shortest sides, roll up both ends jelly-roll fashion to meet in center. Cut into 8 slices. Repeat with remaining 2 rectangles, forming 16 slices in all. Place, cut side down, 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Brush with remaining melted butter.

  • 3 Place cookies on serving plate. Place dollop of cream cheese spread on each cookie. Top each with sliced peaches.

Expert Tips

Palmiers, so named because they form a palm leaf shape as the pastry puffs out, can be made the day before, then assemble before serving.

Frozen or canned peaches can be substituted; plan on about 11 ounces.
