Homemade Lemon Pastries Easy

Hello Friends! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend! We enjoyed our first festival of the season and started to work on our home project list. Those home projects are always around and we are hoping to get started on a project soon. There is just something about the anticipation of summer that makes me want to get started on home projects.Easy lemon pastries with icing

In addition to home projects, my mother and daughter and I also did some fun spring crafting which I will share soon. I love to craft for the season. There is just something about using your creativity to create that is entirely satisfying.

Speaking of embracing the season, we made these easy breakfast pastries recently. They are so easy to make and what is great is that it is easy to put your own spin on them.

These are also perfect to take to work friends or give to a friend who could use a smile.

Easy Lemon Breakfast Pastries

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 12


  • 1 can crescent dough sheet
  • 3 oz package of cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Slice dough at 1/2" intervals and place dough circles on parchment paper.
  • With a spoon or your thumb, make an indentation in the middle of each circle.
  • In a small bowl mix together cream cheese, lemon juice and sugar.
  • Fill each dough center with 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture.
  • Bake for 14-16 minutes until golden brown.

I like to ice these with an easy milk and powdered sugar icing. The mixture is 1/4 cup powdered sugar with 1 tablespoon of milk or water. Beat until smooth and drizzle on pastries.

There's a bakery up the street that makes Lemon Turnovers and I always think that's so brilliant! We've all had berry ones, but nothing says summer like lemon pastries. YUM.
