Creamy Cinnamon Squares


My husband said "It's like cheesecake for breakfast." I found this recipe on Gourmet Mom on-the-go. They were so yummy and easy. They were best really cold so I think you could cook them the night before and serve them in the morning. See the bottom of the recipe for some yummy variations.
Creamy Cinnamon Squares
2 cans pilsbury crescent rolls ( I used the new recipe creations that are just one big sheet)
3/4 cup white sugar
2 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
1 tsp. vanilla
Topping
3/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
Directions:
Spread 1 crescent package on bottom of a greased 9 x 13 pan. Mix together 2 packages cream cheese, 3/4 cup sugar, and 1 tsp. vanilla and spread on top of crescent roll. Spread 2nd crescent roll package on top of mixture. Mix 1/4 c. sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon and sprinkle on top of second crescent roll. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool for awhile, then pop into the fridge until completely cold. Cut into squares and enjoy.
*Variations: The website I got this from suggested also layering apple pie filling on top of the cream cheese. You could also do cherry or blueberry too.
Topping variations: Instead of sprinkling cinnamon mixture on top you could do a powdered sugar icing or a crumb topping like apple pie or both!
Icing
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1 tbsp. milk
1 tbsp. butter, softened
In a small bowl, stir together powdered sugar, milk and butter. After danish has cooled, drizzle with icing.

Pin It!
