Coconut Buns

4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 - 1/2 cup coconut
1 Tbl. honey
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 can Crescent rolls

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. softened butter
1 Tbl. lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl mix cream cheese, sugar, honey and lemon juice until smooth. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray. Unroll crescents onto cookie sheet. Don't separate. Press perforations together to make 1 large sheet. Carefully spread cream cheese mix over crescent sheet. Sprinkle with coconut. Roll up like a jelly roll. With a serrated knife cut into 12 equal slices. Place on cookie sheet and bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

In a small bowl mix sugar, butter and lemon juice. Spread over warm rolls.

Changes - Use finely chopped nuts or raisins instead of coconut. After adding glaze, sprinkle with coconut or chopped nuts. Or add a little cinnamon with the nuts and make cinnamon buns
