Nicole's notes for this recipe:
This is a quick and easy way to add a little something special to breakfast or brunch. Strawberry or blackberry jam is excellent.

Preheat the oven to 375° and set out cookie sheet. Line with parchment or silicone liner if desired.
In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice and extract until smooth and creamy. (You may use electric beaters or beat by hand.)
Unroll each crescent roll. On the fattest part of the triangle place 1 tsp on cream cheese mixture and one tsp of jam. Roll up and place on cookie sheet.
Whisk together egg and water for egg wash and brush over each crescent roll.
Bake for 10-14 minutes until crescent rolls are golden brown and cooked through. Enjoy!

I changed the cook time on this recipe after making it again. I needed about 13 minutes in my oven. Also, there will be leftover cream cheese mix. I add a little Cool Whip to it and use it to dip fruit or graham crackers in for a quick snack.

I was wondering for those of us who have picky eaters if you could substitute anything for the jam?

Hi Amber! You could completely leave out the jam. You could use chocolate chips instead of jam or mix a little peanut butter in with the cream cheese mixture. You could use well drained and patted dry canned peach slices as well. If you come up with an interesting variation, please let me know.
