Karina Jones is a real-life ranch wife in the Nebraska Sandhills and one of the most highly sought-after speakers in the cattle industry nationwide!
You picked a great day to tune in to Ranch Raised! As I’ve said before, I feed a family of big breakfast eaters! Some mornings, serving breakfast around here resembles opening a barn darn and the animals fleeing the barn to run to their grain troughs.
I really try not make sugary cereal an option in the mornings, but what can I say, it does happen, so no judgement here. When I run on to a simple, out of the ordinary recipe option, my family is usually always down to try it!
Let’s get down to breakfast business! As always, this recipe will posted on the Ranch Raised Facebook page and the Your Ag Network app and website!
You will need 2 cans of crescent rolls that you will leave flat and roll out on a big baking sheet. Yes, I made mine into the shape of a candy cane, but we will enjoy this recipe all year around, so you don’t have to be that fancy. Whip one package of room temp cream cheese with ½ cup of powdered sugar. Add in ½ teaspoon of almond extract or vanilla extract and 1 tsp of lemon juice. Spread on the crescent roll dough. On top of the cream cheese mixture, spread one can of cherry pie filling. Bake at 350 for 13-15 minutes. While that is baking, make a simple glaze of 1 ½ cups of powdered sugar with 3-4 tablespoons milk and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract and then drizzle on the masterpiece after you pull it out of the oven.

Karina ranches with her husband, Marty, and 3 daughters near Broken Bow, NE. She grew up in western NE, with roots also in southwest SD. The cattle industry and raising kids is her passion.
Watching the cattle industry go the path that it has gone, she could no longer sit quietly at home checking cows, fixing fence, and doing all the everyday tasks wondering when some else was going to make it all better. As she became more active and outspoken on industry issues, she was asked to join the R-CALF USA staff in September 2020 as the Checkoff Petition Campaign manager. That position transcended into her current role as full time Field Director for R-CALF USA.
You can hear her almost every Friday on Your Ag Network’s Hot Barn Report that is broadcast on 60 radio stations with coverage in 9 states, where she deep dives into cattle industry issues and highlights R-CALF’s work on industry reforms. Listen to Ranch Raised on a Your Ag Network hometown station or www.youragnetwork.com where she talks about her daily life on the ranch.
