King Cake Crescent Rolls
1 can crescent rolls
1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar
8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

For the glaze:
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon milk
Colored sugar purple, yellow and green

Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease a large cookie sheet or place parchment paper on it and set aside.
Add cream cheese, 1 cup powdered sugar, vanilla and lemon juice to a medium mixing bowl. With an electric mixer, mix until fluffy.
Separate the crescent dough along the perforated lines, into eight triangles. Sprinkle each piece with cinnamon sugar.
Spread 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture on the large end of each dough triangle. Roll up each crescent, folding in both sides.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Add the remaining powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla in a medium mixing bowl. Stir until all a thick glaze forms.
Generously drizzle the vanilla glaze on top of each crescent roll. Sprinkle the purple, yellow and green colored sugars on top.
