Lemon Cream Cheese Bites

I made these for a work breakfast today. I thought the icing was too powdersugary but my co-workers thought they turned out perfectly. i also noticed that i really didn't need as much icing as this made. I'd like to try it with part Splenda.

Lemon Cream Cheese Bites
2 - 8 oz. reduced fat crescent rolls
7 oz light cream cheese
2 T Splenda
juice from 1 lemon
1 c powdered sugar

Unroll crescent rolls and separate to form 8 rectangles. Press diagonal perforations to seal. Stir together cream cheese, Splenda, and lemon juice from 1/2 lemon. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over each rectangle. Roll up lengthwise. Gently cut each roll into 6 one-inch thick slices.Place rolls in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. For Glaze: Combine powdered sugar and juice from other 1/2 lemon. Drizzle over warm rolls.
