Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch pan.
  2. Press one can of the crescent rolls into the bottom of the prepared pan. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese, 1 cup of sugar, and vanilla until smooth and creamy. Spread over the crescent layer. Unroll the second can of crescent rolls and lay them on top of the cream cheese layer. Do not press down. Pour the melted margarine over the entire pan. Combine the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the top.

I LOVED this... I had to make it my own, so I made the cream cheese layer (with splenda blend) and tried variations to it by spreading a layer of either apricot, blueberry, blackberry or strawberry sugarfree preserves over the cream cheese then finishing off with the crescent dough and butter and splenda blend sprinkled on top... OMG, I had to make this 3 times in 2 days due to so many people loving it over the holidays!!! No one could guess it was sugarfree.. the fruit topping over the creamcheese really gives it kick! My fav were the blueberry ones, and the apricot... with the apricot I crushed 1/2 C of pecans and sprinkled those over the top with cinnamon and splenda blend.. that was sheer heaven. Even better the next day if thats even possible! I am thinking about trying this with a variation of no sugar, but using a packet of hidden valley ranch powder and bacon and maybe some sundried tomatoes... maybe butter and parmesan on top?... I will let you know!

I have made these with so many different toppings!! They are great with pretty much anything. I have used lemon zest, blueberry toppong, fresh strawberries, apples and cinnamon and i'm thinking maube brown sugar and cinnamon next time. I love these things!! And don't pour that much butter over the top. I found it best to just brush on a thin coat and if you alter it, like adding strawberries, you may want to omit the sugar and cinnamon on the top.

I make these squares more than 2 dozen times a year!! They are the most popular thing I make. I'm a always asked to make them for everything. You will always be a hit, 100% of the time when you bring these to any event. I prefer to line my baking pan with aluminum foil for easy removal and refridgerate overnight. I then remove them from the pan and slice then arrange them on a serving platter. Works great everytime,
