  11. Roll up each triangle, starting from the wide end and rolling towards the point, enclosing the cream cheese filling. Place the rolled croissants on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  12. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  13. Brush the tops of the croissants with beaten egg for a golden color.
