Ingredients
  

  • 2 Tbsp Sugar
  • 4 oz Cream Cheese softened
  • 1 Roll Pillsbury Crescent Sheet
  • 10 oz (about half of a 21 oz can)¬†Cherry Pie Filling

Glaze Ingredients:

  • 1/4 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Milk

Instructions
 

  • First, you want to preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Then line a cookie sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup. If you have a good nonstick sheet, you can skip this step if you want.
  • Roll out the whole crescent sheet without pulling them apart. Cut into 8 squares. Then put the pieces about 1-2 inches apart on the sheet to keep them from touching when baked.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar together until fully mixed.
  • Add a spoonful of the cheesecake mixture to the middle of each square.
  • On top of the cheesecake filling, add a heaping spoonful of pie filling. That works out to be about 3-4 cherries and a little of the jelly goo.
  • To close the pastries, fold the corners up and into the middle. They should fold almost all the way up but not quite to the center.
  • Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 15 minutes, until slightly golden.
  • When done, remove them from the oven, and allow them to slightly cool.
  • Mix the powdered sugar and milk together in a small dish to make the glaze.
  • After pastries are slightly cooled, using a spoon to drizzle them with glaze.
