Cherry Cheese Rolls


These rolls are great for breakfast or dessert! The Kraft recipe for these rolls called for blueberries, but I substituted cherry pastry filling. You could probably use preserves in this recipe. Of course, my mind is headed in the pumpkin direction. These would be great with a pumpkin cream cheese filling. These were so easy and quick to make, and would be perfect for a Sunday morning brunch.

Cherry Cheese Rolls
1 pkg. (8 oz.) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, softened
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 cup cherry pastry filling, divided
Directions:
PREHEAT oven to 375ºF. Unroll dough into four rectangles; firmly press perforations together to seal.
COMBINE Neufchatel cheese and sugar; spread onto dough rectangles to within 1/2 inch of edges. Top evenly with cherries. Bring opposite corners of rectangles together; press together to seal. Place on ungreased baking sheet.
BAKE 11 to 13 min. or until golden brown.
