Ingredients to make strawberry cheesecake crescent rolls.

How To Make Strawberry Cheesecake Crescent Rolls

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Then line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together vanilla extract, powdered sugar, and cream cheese and set aside.
  • On a piece of parchement paper roll out crescent roll dough. Add 1 tablespoon of cream cheese mixture, 1 teaspoon of strawberry jam, and 1 tablespoon of strawberries.
  • Carefully roll up the crescent roll and transfer them to the prepared baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together egg and water. Brush egg wash on each crescent roll, then sprinkle them with Turbinado sugar.
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Then serve and enjoy!

How To Store Strawberry Cheesecake Crescent Rolls

Once your crescent rolls have completely cooled, go ahead and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

You could also wrap your strawberry cheesecake crescent rolls in plastic wrap before placing them in an airtight container as this will help to ensure they keep as fresh as possible and don’t absorb any other food odors in the fridge.

Can I Freeze These Strawberry Cheesecake Crescent Rolls?

Absolutely! You can freeze these cheesecake crescent rolls for up to 1 month (either baked or unbaked).

Wrap your crescent rolls in plastic wrap and then transfer them to an airtight container or Ziploc bag in the freezer. Thaw your rolls in the refrigerator overnight and reheat them in the oven by wrapping them in aluminum foil and bake at 350℉ for 5-10 minutes. 

Can I Use An Air Fryer To Make This Dessert?

Yes! Most crescent roll treats are baked in the oven but they can also easily be cooked in an air fryer too! If you love using your air fryer then why not give it a try!

To make these strawberry cheesecake crescent rolls in the air fryer, place them (once assembled) on the air fryer basket, giving them even space for proper air circulation. Set your air fryer to 350°F and cook your crescent rolls for 4-6 minutes until they get that beautiful golden brown crispy top. 

Variations

  • You could easily change the fruit filling and fresh fruit to make a different fruity cheesecake crescent roll. Consider using seedless raspberry jam and fresh raspberries for Raspberry Cheesecake Crescent Rolls. The options are endless and you could also experiment with: blackberries and blackberry jam, apple slices and apple butter, blueberries with blueberry jam…you get the idea!
  • Get fancy with your crescent rolls and drizzle a powdered sugar glaze over the baked crescent rolls before serving.
  • Spread some Nutella on the unfolded crescent dough while assembling your rolls for strawberry chocolate cheesecake crescent rolls!

Tips For Making Strawberry Cheesecake Crescent Rolls

  • These strawberry cheesecake crescent rolls are totally scrumptious on their own but you could serve them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a more decadent dessert option.
  • If you’re unfamiliar with Turbinado sugar, it comes from pure sugar cane, offering you a less processed option to something like brown sugar. If you can’t get access to it then coconut sugar is a good substitute.
  • Sometimes the jam in the crescent rolls seeps out during baking. This doesn’t really bother me since lining the baking sheet with parchment paper prevents any sticky mess but if you want to prevent the fruit filling seeping out then just pop your assembled crescent rolls into the refrigerator for 30 minutes before baking. This will help harden the jam somewhat.
