Makes : 8 Pcs 

1 can Crescent Rolls
1/3 cup Cream Cheese
1/3 cup granulated sugar or to taste; see tip 1
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 1/4 cup fresh Blueberries
Fresh Blueberries for decorating, optional
1 tbsp Powdered Sugar / Confectioner's sugar for dusting, optional

How to make Blueberry Cream Cheese Wreath

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Combine cream cheese, sugar & vanilla extract in a bowl.
  3. Unroll the crescent rolls & separate them into 8 triangles as per the marked perforations.
  4. On a round baking pan, arrange the triangles in a wreath shape with shortest side of the triangle towards the center & overlapping each other & about 2 inches of pointed end of each triangle hanging over the baking pan. After arranging the triangles in a wreath shape, remember you will be left with an empty circle of about 2-3 inches in the center of the baking pan.
  5. Spread the cream cheese mixture on to the crescent rolls (non-hanging part). Spread the blueberries on top of the cream cheese.
  6. Pull the pointed ends of each triangle over the filling & tuck under the dough.
  7. Bake in the oven for 15-16 minutes or until golden brown. Allow it to cool.
  8. Just before serving, arrange blueberries around the rim of the baking pan & in the center of the wreath. Sprinkle confectioner's sugar over the blueberries. Serve.

  1. Adjust the sugar quantity as per the tartness of your blueberries and/or as per your taste.
  2. Last step is optional. Feel free to arrange any way you wish. You may apply vanilla glaze over the crescents or just sprinkle confectioner's sugar over them.
