Manesseh Moore, AHS Staff Contributor

Ingredients: 2 cans crescent rolls; 2 boxes cream cheese; sugar; cinnamon; 1/2 stick butter.

Directions: Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease or spray a glass pan with cooking spray. Slightly melt the cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl about 30 seconds. Once the cream cheese is soft, add 1 cup of sugar and stir together until the mixture is smooth. Open the first can of crescent rolls and roll them out flat on the bottom of the pan. Push the perforations together. Spread the cream cheese and sugar mixture over the crescent rolls evenly. Open the second can of crescent rolls and roll them out on top of the cream cheese and sugar mixture. Push the perforations together. Melt the butter. Pour it over the top of the crescent rolls. Mix sugar and cinnamon together in a Ziploc baggie. It depends on how much you want on top of the dessert as to how much to use. If you want a crispy cinnamon crunch on the top, use more (1/2 cup of sugar and 1/4 cup of cinnamon). Pour the sugar and cinnamon evenly over the top of the melted butter. Bake for 25 minutes.
