Strawberry Cream Cheese Croissants

 I found this recipe on Pinterest and had to try it. It turns out that it was so good that I had to include this on our blog! I had some leftover dinner roll dough and used that as my bread and it tasted great.  You've got to try this. I also used fresh pureed strawberries instead of the jam and it was fantastic!~BJ

1 package of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls- or homemade rolls

In a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla. Cream until there are no lumps.

Unroll each crescent roll. On the fattest part of the triangle place 1 tsp on cream cheese mixture and one tsp of jam. Roll into a croissant shape.

Whisk together egg and water for egg wash and brush over each croissant.
