Favorite Holiday Dessert: Easy Cheesecake

I always make this for the holidays and it's a HUGE hit. It is so simple to make, yet TO DIE FOR!!


Here's what you need:

2 cans of refrigerated cresent rolls (you heard me right-people are always surprised)

2 8 oz. packages of cream cheeses

1 cup of sugar

1 tbs. of vanilla

1 stick of butter, melted

Some cinnamon and sugar mixed together (how ever much you want to use to sprinkle the very top-maybe half a cup)


STEPS:

1. Unroll and spread one of the cresent rolls on the bottom of the pan. pinch the sides together.
2. Mix together the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Then spread the mixture on top of the crescent roll layer.
3. Unroll and spread the other crescent roll layer on top of the cream cheese layer.

4. Pour the melted butter on top , and then sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture on top of that (I use alot).


Bake at 350 for 30 minutes (until top is lightly toasted).

Cool and cut into squares! It makes alot so I usually divvy it up and bring it various functions.




The reason why this picture of them looks messy is b/c we couldn't wait for them to cool and set b/f sampling--ha ha
