2 (8oz.) packages cream cheese
2 cans refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla or almond extract
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup cinnamon sugar (1/2 cup sugar with 1 Tbsp. cinnamon)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Unroll 1 can of crescent rolls and press into an ungreased 9x13 inch glass pan, pinching together perforations and lining the bottom of pan. In medium mixing bowl, cream together cream cheese and 1 cup sugar until smooth. Add in vanilla or almond extract. Spread over crescent roll base evenly. Unroll second can of rolls and carefully cover the cream cheese layer, pinching the seams together. Pour melted butter over the top and sprinkle with the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 28-30 minutes. Allow to cool and cut into bars. Refrigerate any leftovers. (This recipe can be cut in half and baked in an 8x8 inch pan.)
Instagram yesterday after these came out of the oven with the caption, "This must be what heaven smells like." Ridiculously easy, ridiculously delicious. You should make up a batch of these soon...for dessert, for a snack, for breakfast...any occasion will do.
