Dessert recipes have been made for centuries, with some of the first dessert recipes being cheesecakes and cakes that were made by the ancient Egyptian people and the Greeks in ancient days. Most of the desserts back then were sweetened with honey and fruit was usually served as dessert as well. Many of the desserts that people enjoyed back then are still dessert recipes that we can enjoy today, that have evolved with our own tastes and preferences.

So you have lots of options when it comes to making these yummy looking Lemon Cheesecake Crescent Rolls.

Crescent rolls are a lovely, light dessert that is wonderful to have any time of year. These little bite sized lemon cheesecake crescent rolls are the perfect size to snack on or put out on a tray with other various types of cookies or dessert squares. The inside of the crescent roll is a cheesecake like filling that is made with cream cheese and lemon zest to give it that nice, fresh lemony flavour. Then, the outside is made with biscuit dough that has been pre made and the cheesecake recipe filling just gets rolled up inside and then the little crescent rolls get drizzled with a sugar glaze once they have been baked in the oven. They look so yummy and real quite pretty too. Crescent rolls, or otherwise known as croissants, by their French name, actually started out with an entirely different name. This baked good was also known as a Kipferl, and was first made in Austria in the 13th century. Once the Kipferl began evolving, it was given the name of the croissant in France because it looked like the shape of a crescent moon. In the United States people just call them crescent rolls in the English translation of the word. Crescent rolls can be filled with a number of different fillings, and this simple dessert recipe can be changed as you like. They can be filled with meat and cheese for a more savoury option of crescent roll, or with other sweet fillings like chocolate, or cherry pie filling. They can even be enjoyed plain and simple with nothing inside or with just a simple almond flavoured glaze with sliced almonds on top. Either way, crescent rolls are delicious.
