...where we profess our love for food and food related things.
A good friend of mine requested a treat for her birthday which was this past weekend (shout out to the birthday girl if she reads this!). It turned out great so I thought I'd share the recipe with you.
This recipe was posted on Facebook and I just wrote it down and went from there but now, for the life of me, I cannot find the post so see what it's called or where it came from. But, thanks to Google, I was able to find the same recipe on another site so I can reference that one. As with the last recipe review I posted I have included my notes in blue.
2 cans Pillsbury butter crescent rolls
2 (8oz) packages cream cheese (softened)
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup butter (melted)
Cinnamon & sugar
Unroll and spread 1 can crescent rolls on bottom of un-greased pan.
I would recommend sealing the edges between the rolls as needed after you roll it out. I didn't go as far as to whip out a rolling pin (who am I kidding, I don't even know where my rolling pin is!!) but I did press together any gaps with my fingers.
Also, the recipe doesn't recommend what type of pan to use but I found that a cookie sheet worked fine. Which I'm very glad for because otherwise I would have had quite the mess in my oven!
I did the same thing as with the first later of rolls. I sealed any cracks and I also lightly pressed the edges together so the cream cheese wouldn't leak out when baking.
I was in a rush so once again I failed to take good photos.
Also, please excuse my very old, very 'seasoned' pans :)
I would recommend this recipe whether or not you're a fan of cream cheese. I'll tell you why. I love LOVE cream cheese right out of the package but I don't really like foods with cream cheese cooked into it. Cheesecake, pumpkin rolls, cream cheesy pastry things....no thanks! I really didn't think I would like this but I actually did. Granted I stayed away from the center where the cream cheese was thicker but the edges were very tasty.
I will be making this again and I'm sure it will be sooner rather than later.
