  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

  • 2.

    In a medium bowl, thoroughly mix all filling ingredients until uniform.

  • 3.

    Separate dough into its eight triangle-shaped portions. One at a time, stretch or roll each triangle out slightly, making it into a larger triangle.

  • 4.

    Evenly distribute and spread filling among the triangles, avoiding the edges. Beginning at the base, tightly roll up each triangle over the filling. Place on the baking sheet, evenly spaced.

  • 5.

    Bake until golden brown, 12 - 15 minutes. The let cool completely.

  • 6.

    In a small microwave-safe bowl, mix Truvía® Original Sweetener with 1 Tbsp water. Microwave for 20 seconds, and stir to dissolve.

  • 7.

    In a medium bowl, stir cream cheese until smooth. Add Truvía® Original Sweetener mixture and remaining icing ingredients. Stir until smooth. Transfer icing to a plastic bag, and squeeze it down toward a bottom corner. Snip off that corner with scissors, creating a small hole for piping. Evenly pipe mixture over the crescent rolls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cinnamon Cresent Rolls I tried this last week. I am not a fan of yogurt, so I just used cream cream cheese and Truvia spoonable sweetner for the icing.
