There are a few things I have discovered in this game of life.

One: There is no pain quite like getting some orange peel (and subsequently orange juice) stuck under your fingernail.

Two: Nothing can make me crazier than unexpected traffic. Like, if it’s 4 pm, I get it. But, if it’s 11 am on a random Wednesday, why are we all on the road at the same time? Where are you going?? What are you doing? I need to know.

Three: Fruit mixed in salad isn’t nearly as weird as I thought it was (and sometimes, it actually tastes really, really good—case and point, Strawberry, Avocado, & Bacon Spinach Salad).

Four: Wet jeans are the actual worst.

Five: Strawberry Lemon Cheesecake Croissants (aka Strawberry Lemon Cheesecake Crescent Rolls, because why make homemade croissants when you can pop open a can? #convenience), are some of the greatest, easiest things in the entire world.

All right, so I mentioned this above, but these strawberry lemon cheesecake croissants use canned crescent roll biscuit dough.

Don’t hate me.

I know that technically—technically—crescent roll dough is not the same as a homemade croissant pastry. However, they have similar characteristics, so I feel fairly confident calling these “croissants.”

I mean, they’re buttery, they have the same shape, and it’s hard to stop at just one. So…to me, totally the same (with the added bonus that crescent rolls are soooooo easy). 😜

Next, let’s discuss the filling in these cute ‘lil strawberry lemon cheesecake crescent rolls.

Strawberries. Lemon. Cream Cheese. Basically, the trifecta of flavors.

Because if there was one thing in the world I can’t get enough of, it’s all things strawberry lemon. Strawberry Lemon Coffee Cake, Strawberry Lemon Cream Scones, Strawberry Lemon Pie…I digress.

It’s an obsession, yes, but given the taste, it’s a valid obsession.

As of late, the strawberries around here have been so ridiculously sweet (and I’ve been using them in straight everything, hence these Strawberry Blondies), and, well, I just couldn’t help myself. They had to be paired with something lemony.

And topped (or drenched) in a lemon glaze.

Strawberry Lemon Cheesecake Croissants
Lemon Glaze
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix cream cheese, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla extract together.
Add in sugar, and mix until combined.
Mix in chopped strawberries.
Roll out crescent roll dough and separate dough into 8 triangles.
Spoon 1-2 Tbsp of strawberry lemon cheesecake filling onto the wide end of the triangles.
Roll up each croissant, starting at the wide end and ending at the point. Pinch the ends together (this helps keep the filling inside).
Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until rolls are golden brown. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes.
Mix powdered sugar, lemon juice, and zest together. Drizzle over each croissant.
Enjoy! (They taste great warm, cold, and at room temperature!)
