Crescent Cherry Cheese Cobbler


The title of the recipe might suggest that this is a crescent-shaped cobbler. Nope.  It's an easy cobbler made with crescent rolls. Oh, how I love little recipes like this one!  The whole flavor of the crescent roll is transformed and made into something sweet.  
And the fun with these types of recipes is you can keep changing them up by using different types of canned pie filling.  Blueberry and Strawberry fillings are also pretty scrumptious with this! I love the way the cherries look. They are so bright and red.  Great for a holiday dessert! Plus, I just really love cherry cheesecake.  Make this dessert, you will not be disappointed!

Ingredients:
1 (8 oz.) tube crescent rolls
12 oz. (1 1/2 blocks) cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar (divided use)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 (21 oz.) can cherry pie filling
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
Spray an 8x8 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Unroll the crescent rolls.  Line four (4) of them in the bottom of the baking dish.  
Cover the bottom entirely and seal the seams as best as possible.
Next, combine cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar.  Beat with an electric mixer until smooth.
Then add in vanilla and mix again.
Spread cream cheese mixture over crescent rolls in the baking dish.
Then pour pie filling on top of cream cheese layer. Spread it around evenly.
Finally, top with remaining crescent roll dough.  
Do your best to stretch it out on top and seal the seams of the crescent rolls.
Pour melted butter on the top of the crescent rolls.  
Then sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar evenly over the melted butter.
Bake for about 35-45 minutes.  
Top crust should be golden brown in color.
Enjoy!

    1. Definitely! Also, Pillsbury makes crescent rolls into sheets now for baking. So, if you can find those, that makes it even easier to make!

    1. Good idea with the strawberry. Lemon will help balance out the sweetness since strawberry pie filling can be super sweet. :)

  8. Lemon pie filling is marvelous also. Instead of adding sugar before baking, dust with confectioners sugar when cooled.

  9. I like this because of the cream cheese! Reminds me of a something I buy at a local pastry shop. Pinned.

  10. I make something similar to this using blueberry pie filling....but the cherry looks so pretty and festive!

    1. Hi! I actually purchased it at Target. It's made by Corningware and the color is French White. I am loving these baking dishes with handles!

  11. OMG, I have been making this for a couple of years now and it was an adaptation of the crescent cream cheese danish. I am so glad that other people found out how to do this because it is awesome! My significant other asks for it on a weekly basis. I have tried cherry, blueberry, strawberry and apple. The best, we think, so far...apple! The lemon sounds good too, though!

  15. I have to say, as an experienced baker, using a VERY simple recipe, I managed to mess it up quite well! I thought I had pie filling but did not. So, I figured, crushed pineapple (drained) and coconut would taste delicious. Mixed up the cream cheese, put the pineapple and coconut on the pastry, put on the top pastry, whoops forgot the cream cheese on the bottom! So my layers were backwards! Testament to the simplicity of your recipe. It's still delicious! Next time I'll do it right!

  23. This will probably sound a bit strange but my husband and I found this to be much better the second day! I will be making this today but will refrigerate and eat later. Yum!

  26. I'm wondering if I made this the night before and brought it to my meeting the next day how the dessert would do. Anyone ever tried?

  28. I used Musselman's Blackberry pie filling that is free of High fructose corn syrup. which has 17 grams of sugar in a 1/3 cup. and used Agave instead of sugar. Just put it in the oven, cannot wait to try out on my friends.

  29. I just made this, and already had a piece. Super easy. DELISH! I will be making this again soon.

  30. Made this yesterday but doubled the recipe (9x13”) and used Grand’s Crescent rolls. With doubling recipe I learned not to double the butter poured on top as it took longer to bake and the crescent rolls were very dark. For us doubling the sugar topping was not necessary either. I still only used 1/4 cup as originally called for.
    This will sound like a dumb question to some but - should this be stored in the fridge?
    Being cream cheese I thought it did but others in my house feel different.

    Thanks!

  31. Donna, yes I would store it in the fridge if it's not all eaten the same day it's made :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. If I double the recipe, should I cook for a longer amount of time?

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm wondering how I managed to screw this so simple recipe up but mine came out a runny mess. :( I knew it of course wasn't going to look like the pic but it wasn't even close. Any ideas? (Even tho it was runny, it was still delish!)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have these in the oven right now, about four minutes to go, and thank goodness, because if I get asked ONE more time when they will be ready to eat, I might just go nuts! They look and smell delicious.

  35. How would pumpkin work as the filling?

    The recipe sounds wonderful..thanks!

  36. Would I be able to add an egg to the cream cheese mixture?

    ReplyDelete
  37. I made this today. Oh my...oh my...oh my! Thank You!

  38. I've made this with blueberry pie filling and raspberry pie filling and both were amazing. This recipie is so quick and easy and delicious!! This has become my go-to dish when I need to take a dish somewhere!
    The first time I made this, the top was soupy with the melted butter and I had to soak some of it up with a paper towel and leave it in the oven extra long. The last couple times I made this, I used about half the amount of melted butter for the top and it was perfect! :)

  39. Someone asked if they could add an egg to the cream cheese mixture. I add a large egg to it and the result is a layer that rises and tastes like a cheesecake........yummy
