This is a very tasty and easy recipe my husband brought home from work, and prepared it for dessert this evening.

"We really enjoyed this!!! My son and I wanted something sweet at 10pm. I had all the ingredients, so we decided to try it. It smelled very good too as it was baking. I only made half the size of the recipe, but, we added about 1/4 cup milk chocolate morsels to the cream cheese and sugar mixture. See my picture. We immediately had a piece right out of the over. It was wonderful. Memories made and it's going in my cookbook that I am preparing to give him when he leaves home and gets married. ; ) something to remember mom by, lol. Thanks for sharing!"


2 cans Crescent rolls; divided use
2 8 ounce Packages of cream cheese; softened
1 3/4 cup Sugar; divided use
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 cup Butter; melted
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

Original recipe makes 12



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Bottom crust:

Spread one can of crescent rolls over the bottom of the pan.


Mix two packages of cream cheese, one cup of sugar, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla for about one minute, or until well blended. Spread the filling evenly over the bottom crust.

Top crust:

Arrange the second can of crescent rolls over the filling.


Pour the melted butter over the top crust. Mix 3/4 cup sugar with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and sprinkle over the top of the buttered crust.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until the topping is browned. Serve warm, and refrigerate leftovers.


This could be a very versitile recipe. Cherry pie filling might be good, if added under the top crust. I think the possibilities are endless. The original recipe would be hard to beat.

Completely wowed my family making this. It was easy and i had all of the ingredients since there are so little. It was very hard using the crescent rolls raw because they broke apart in every way imaginable. I will be making this again in the future for special occasions. Thanks so much for posting.
