Hubby’s favorite dessert is cheesecake and yesterday, being his birthday, a cheesecake was in order. One of our good friend’s birthday is also the same day, same year, so I made this and we shared. It was so easy, but so good! We served it on top of a drizzle of chocolate with whipped cream on top and licked our plates clean…
2 cans Pillsbury Crescent dinner rolls-butter flake
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese-at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg-slightly beaten
1 cup sugar-divided
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In your electric mixer, beat together the cream cheese, vanilla, partially beaten egg and 1/2 cup sugar until smooth.
Mix together the rest of the sugar and the cinnamon and set aside.
Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray and sprinkle half of the sugar/cinnamon mixture on the bottom of the dish. Roll out one package of the crescent rolls in the bottom of the pan, pinching the seams together.
Spread the cheesecake mixture over the rolls, then roll out the remaining crescent rolls over the top, again pinching the seams together. Top with the remaining sugar/cinnamon mixture.
Bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.
