Taken from Taste of Home's Holiday Recipe Card Collection 2008. "Refrigerated cresent roll dough makes preparing this lovely dessert a breeze. Guests will rave over the bars' flakey crust and fruity cheesecake-like flavor."

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (8 ounce) tubes refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 2 tablespoons lemon curd
  • 2 (8 ounce) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 eggs, seperated
  • 5 ounces seedless raspberry preserves (original recipe said 1/2 to 3/4 of a 9.5 oz. jar)
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon warm water


  1. Unroll 1 tube of crescent dough; press into the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 in baking pan sealing seams and perforations. In a bowl, combine curd, cream cheese, and egg yolks. Beat until smooth.
  2. Spread cream cheese mixture over crescent dough. Drop preserves over cream cheese mixture and swirl with a spatula. Unroll remaining crescent dough, flatten dough, sealing seams and perforations. Lay flat on top of cream cheese mixture. Beat egg white until foamy and brush over dough.
  3. Bake at 350 for 25-35 minutes or until dough is golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Combine confectioners' sugar and water. Drizzle over crust. Chill well before cutting.

Shelby Jo, this is a wonderful recipe! I made this tonight to take to work in the morning, but DH decided it smelled to good to pass up! I used Pillsbury "Creative Creations" Crescent Dough - so I didn't worry about perforations... I also used Lemon Curd by Derf because it is the BEST for lemon curd!!! Delicious!!! DH and I enjoyed this very much!!!! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders 09.

Delicious and so easy! I split recipe in half, cut one tube of crescent dough in half before laying it in the pan, assembled and baked in a 9 inch pan for 25 minutes. I used part of a canned lemon pie filling for the lemon curd. Thanks Shelby Jo for posting. Made for Newest Zaar tag.

This is wonderful, plus I loved that I had all the ingredients on hand. It is so quick and simple to get together. I could see using other jellies or jams, such as strawberry next time. Thanks for sharing Shelby Jo. Made for your win in Tic Tac Toe Tag.
