These are the best raspberry crescent rolls I've had! With just six ingredients and less than 20 minutes to make, you'll never go for store-bought again. This is a breakfast you won't mind getting out of bed for.

Sweet rolls are some of my favorite things to make for breakfast. If you are like me and enjoy a sweet in the morning, you should try also try these pineapple sweet rolls and slow cooker orange sweet rolls.

Today's raspberry lemon combination is one that I simply can't resist. I adore fresh berries with a hint of lemon. And the smell of them baking in the oven is pure bliss.

These crescent rolls sort of remind me of a Danish pastry, only less sweet and easy to inhale. Hubster had three of them. Later that night as we were laying bed trying to wind down for the night, he voiced how he was still thinking about these rolls.

The man doesn't even like raspberries!! I think I've proven my point.

The recipe makes eight crescent rolls, which is the standard amount in an 8-ounce package of refrigerated crescent roll dough. And pre-made dough is exactly what we are using today.

Typically I'd be against this sort of thing. I love making dough from scratch. But some mornings it can be hard to find time for all that. So semi-homemade it is.

Unroll and separate the dough on your work surface. Spread homemade raspberry filling in the center. Roll the dough up and bake according to the package directions.

The filling is a mixture of fresh raspberries, sugar, and cornstarch. Very simple. Just mix it together and you're done. The only important thing to note here is to pat the berries dry after rinsing them and before cutting them. Otherwise, they'll become soupy from the excess water.

After the crescent rolls have baked they'll get a generous drizzle with a lemony glaze. The tang from the glaze offsets the sweetness of the filling and enhances the raspberry flavor.

These are seriously the easiest raspberry lemon crescent rolls and the best.

These do look delicious, but is there anyone who has actually made these, besides one person, who can give a review on how they taste? Thank you.

I've been to 3 stores without finding fresh raspberries. Has anyone tried with raspberry preserves ?
