Strawberry season is here now and this is a recipe I would love for you to try.

Strawberry-Mascarpone-breakfast-rolls are made with crescent dough, mascarpone cheese and fresh strawberries.

This STRAWBERRY MASCARPONE BREAKFAST RING  is a fun one to make, especially when you have delicious, fresh strawberries. It is quick, easy, and anything with mascarpone cheese in the filling has to be wonderful.

I had entered this recipe a few years ago in the Pillsbury Bake-off contest. One of my recipes was chosen, so I was a finalist, but it was not this one. I have made this Strawberry Mascarpone Breakfast Ring  for my family several times since then so, I guess that makes it a winner.


Preheat oven and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Open can of crescent dough, but do not unroll. Cut into 8 equal slices,  Press each slice down with the palm of your hand to flatten slightly.  Arrange rolls in center of parchment paper, in a circle, with edges slightly overlapping.

Bake for 15-17 minutes, until rolls are light golden brown.  Remove from oven and make a large indentation in center of each roll, using a wooden mini tart shaper. Allow to cool for 5 minutes then transfer to a serving platter.

While rolls are baking, in a medium size bowl, combine the mascarpone cheese, vanilla and 2 Tablespoons of confectioner sugar, using a spoon. Dice 1/2 cup of the strawberries and gently fold into the mascarpone mixture. Place the remaining confectioner sugar in a small bowl and stir in small amounts of the milk at a time to obtain a consistency to drizzle.

Divide the filling evenly between each of the roll centers, about a heaping teaspoon, trying to leave some strawberry pieces toward the top. Smooth tops slightly with a knife. Drizzle the glaze over the rolls. Sprinkle almonds on top. Arrange remaining strawberries in center of the ring.
