Raspberry Cheesecake Croissant
Do you ever just crave sweets? I had such a hankering for these the other day I finally caved and made them. Hit my sweet tooth perfectly!
How to Make
Full instructions and measurements are in the printable recipe card below.
Step 1: Start by preheating the oven and spraying your pan to help prevent sticking.
Step 2: Place croissants in muffin tins. Then in a mixer blend your cream cheese and raspberries together.
Step 3: Fill with cream cheese mixture then bake as directed. When done remove and serve. Or whip you a simple glaze to drizzle over the croissants.
Could I Swap Fruit
You absolutely could swap the raspberries in this recipe. Blueberries and even strawberries are two fruits I think would be incredible.
If you have leftovers you will want to store in the fridge. Due to the fruit and cream cheese.
Just allow your cheesecake croissants to cool and then place in a container or sealable bag. They will store for 2-5 days.
These rolls are best fresh. You will find they dry out a bit with each day.
Could I Swap Fruit Out
You are more than welcome to reach for different or a variety of fruit to use. I loved the fresh raspberries but feel free to do strawberries, blueberries, or even a mix of fruit.
You are more than welcome to mix and match and change up the recipe.
Will Frozen Fruit Work
If you don’t have fresh fruit go right ahead and reach for frozen. You can put the frozen fruit right on and bake frozen.
The only downfall with frozen fruit is they can juice more and release water as they bake. It will also leak and spread color on your croissants.
But it will still taste really good. The fruit is frozen at the prime so you should have an optimal natural sweetness.
Variations to Recipe
- Add chopped nuts on top for crunch
- Use pie filling in replace of fresh or frozen fruit
- Sprinkle on chocolate chips once done baking
- Use puff pastry in replace of dough
- Drizzle with a hot fudge syrup
There are so many small changes you can make to offer incredible flavor. Play around and see what your go-to raspberry croissants are.
