Let's Make It
Heat oven to 375°F.
Beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, egg white and vanilla with mixer until blended; set aside. Whisk egg yolk and water in small bowl until blended.
Unroll 1 can of crescent dough on work surface; roll or press into 14x9-inch rectangle. Cut each rectangle crosswise into 4 (7x4-1/2-inch) rectangles, then cut each rectangle crosswise in half. Repeat with remaining can of crescent dough (You should have a total of 16 small rectangles.)
Spread about 1 Tbsp. cream cheese mixture onto each dough rectangle to within 1/2 inch of edges; top with apples, adding about 2 Tbsp. to each. Lightly brush edges of dough with egg yolk. Roll up each rectangle, starting at one long side.
Place, seam sides down, on 2 parchment-covered baking sheets; brush with any remaining egg yolk. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake 15 to 18 min. or until golden brown; cool slightly.
Prepare rolls as directed, except do not bake. Freeze in airtight container up to 2 months. When ready to serve, transfer desired number of rolls to baking sheet; let stand at room temperature 15 min. before baking as directed.
Substitute 2 fresh pears for the apples.
Add 1/4 cup toasted chopped PLANTERS Pecans to cream cheese mixture before using as directed.
