Recipe by schroomie

This is a recipe we got from an American Girl book. It is best served as a breakfast pastry or dessert. The original recipe calls for the crescents to be filled with jam, but we liked them better with a combination of butter, cinnamon and brown sugar.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream together the butter, cream cheese, salt, and sour cream.
  2. Stir in the flour.
  3. On a floured surface, kneed the dough with your hands until it's smooth.
  4. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for three hours.
  5. Place chilled dough on a lightly floured countertop.
  6. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough thin (about 1/8").
  7. With a table knife, cut the dough into 3" squares.
  8. Spread one corner of each square with the filling mixture.
  9. Starting in that corner, roll up each square, then curve in the ends to form a crescent.
  10. Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes, or until edges are beginning to turn golden.
