Raspberry Cream Cheese Swirls

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Sommer S.

This is an easy semi-homemade recipe that I came up with. I love raspberry cream cheese danishes but wanted a way to make them so that they were really easy, bite-size but full of flavor. I hope you like them. The best part is you can substitute any preserve you want. Orange marmalade, pomegranate, etc. Experiment and enjoy!

These are really simple to make and are very, very good. I used raspberry jam and they were yummy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Filling

  • 6 ounces cream cheese (softened)
  • 12 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tablespoons raspberry preserves
  • 2 (8 ounce) cans refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • Glaze

  • 12 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 teaspoons milk
  • 12 teaspoon raspberry extract (can substitute with vanilla)


  1. Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until fluffy. Fold in raspberry preserve until well blended. Set aside.
  2. Pop open your crescent rolls and carefully separate into 4 rectangles. Firmly press perforations to seal. Press or roll each piece of dough to form a 7 by 4-inch rectangle, and spread each with about 3 tablespoons of the cream cheese filling. Do not go all the way to edge, leave about 1/4 inch space. Starting at the short end of the rectangle, roll each rectangle into a tight cylinder. Place on plate and cover with plastic wrap. Put in fridge for about 30 minute.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  4. When ready, cut each roll carefully into 4 pieces. Place on an ungreased baking sheet, cut side down about 1/2 inch apart. Bake for approximately 18-20 minutes, until light brown.
  5. While rolls are baking. Combine 1/2 cup powdered sugar, milk and extract in small bowl. When rolls are done, drizzle glaze over rolls and serve warm.
