Okay, if some of you out there haven't tried this, you need to! This is soooo delicious and sooo easy!!! I ran across the recipe in the Recipes to Share section of the forum. "Cinngarr" listed it for another member that was looking for it. I made it for dessert to go with my "taco night" dinner at church last Wednesday. It was a BIG hit! Here's her version of the recipe and below is how I changed it up just a bit:
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent dinner rolls (I used the seamless sheets that have out now)
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or almond extract
1/2 cup margarine or butter, melted
1/2 cup cinnamon sugar
1Using a 9 x 13 baking pan (I lightly sprayed mine with Pam), unroll one package of refrigerated crescent rolls and line the bottom of the pan.
3Mix together the cream cheese, sugar and extract.
4Spread over the crescent rolls.
5Unroll the other can of crescent rolls and place on top of cream cheese mixture.
6Pour one stick of melted butter or margarine over the top and sprinkle with about 1/2 cup of the cinnamon sugar mixture.
7Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes
I added a can of apple pie filling on top of the cream cheese mixture before topping with last crescent sheet (got that idea from "smockinggrandma2002"). And instead of using a whole stick of melted butter to pour on top, I just melted 2 tbsp and brushed over top, then just sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on top of that. I did not use a full 1/2 cup of cinnamon/sugar mixture. I also baked mine 5 minutes longer to have it browned to my liking. We had the Lord's supper at our church service last night with a meal following and at the morning service everyone asked if I was bringing my apple dessert again. So I whipped one up along with copies of the recipe to share. Now I just need to get me a cute casserole carrier made to transport it in.
Here's a link to it in the recipe section: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=128662
** Update ** I made one using peach pie filling instead of the apple and it was good, but not as good as the apple. I'm curious now to see how cherry or even strawberry pie filling would taste. May have to try those next.
