Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Beat the cream cheese with 1 cup of sugar and the vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth; set aside.
  3. Unroll the cans of crescent roll dough, and use a rolling pin to shape each sheet into 9x13 inch rectangles. Press one sheet into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Evenly spread the cream cheese mixture into the baking dish, then cover with the remaining piece of crescent dough, and brush with melted butter. Stir together 1/2 cup of sugar with the cinnamon in a small bowl, and sprinkle evenly over the top of the cheesecake.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the crescent dough has puffed and turned golden brown, about 30 minutes. Allow to cool 10 minutes before serving.

I have been making this dessert for awhile now and it is honestly the best dessert in the world! Every single time I make it everyone asks for the recipe. The only thing I do differently is I mix the melted butter, cinnamon and sugar before pouring on top of the dessert. It make a nice glaze. You should 100% make this. You won't be disappointed!

This recipe is awesome. I too wondered if it was too much butter, and because I was so freaked out, I reserved about 2 T of it (why bother at that point!). So I ended up using about 6T melted butter and all of the sugar/cinn mix (that seemed like a lot too) and it came out awesome. I didn't have any issues spreading the cream cheese when I beat it really well like others suggested. I am a big fan of cream cheese, and I wouldn't suggest doubling the filling. As long as you really whip it up, it's more than enough. Also, flour your rolling pin before you roll the dough out. Yum yum!

Simple and delicious. Defiantly worth making. I even used light cream cheese and reduced fat crescent rolls and it was perfect.
