    Cran-Orange Croissant Pinwheel**Pampered Chef

    Great to serve at a brunch!

    Croissants
    1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
    1/3 cup powdered sugar
    1 teaspoon orange zest
    2 teaspoons orange juice
    1/4 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, coarsely chopped

    2 packages (8 oz each) refrigereated crescent rolls

    GLAZE
    1/2 cup powdered sugar
    1 teaspoon orange zest
    2-3 teaspoons orange juice

    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Fro croissants, combine cream cheese, powdereed sugar, orange zest and juice in 1 QT bowl; mix until well blended. Using a food chopper, chop cranberries; stir into cream cheese mixture.

    2. Unroll crescent dough; separate into 16 triangles. Use a small cookie dough scoop or teaspoon to place rounded scoop/spoon of cream cheese mixture on shortest side of each triangle.

    3. Starting at shortest side, roll up triangle loosely to opposite point. Arrange rolls, pinwheel fashion and point sides down, on 15" round baking stone or baking sheet to within 1/2" of edge.

    4. Bake 15-20 mins or until golden brown. Cool slightly. For glaze, combine powdered sugar, orange zest and juice in 1 QT bowl; mix until well blended. Drizzle over warm croissants.

    Yield: 16 croissants

    Carol - I made these last night. I made a 1/2 batch, just as dessert for the 4 of us and we all loved them.
