- Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine cream cheese, 2 tablespoons sugar substitute, lemon juice and lemon peel in small bowl.
- Separate dough into 4 rectangles; press perforations to seal. Work with one piece of dough at a time, keeping remaining dough in refrigerator. Spread each rectangle with 2 tablespoons cream cheese mixture. Roll up lengthwise, pinching edge and ends to seal. Carefully stretch each roll to about 12 inches. Cut each in half.
- Shape halves into spirals on ungreased baking sheet, tucking ends under. (Keep baking sheet in refrigerator as you work.) Make indentation in center of each roll; fill with 1 teaspoon preserves. Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire rack. Cool slightly. Sprinkle rolls with powdered sugar, if desired.
Any flavor sugar-free preserves may be used in place of the strawberry preserves.
