Breakfast: Cinnamon Cheesecake Squares

Yum
UNBELIEVABLY GOOD!

Breakfast Cinnamon Cheesecake Squares

This is one of my family's favorite breakfast recipes!  It is such a good danish recipe and so easy.  The top has a slightly crunchy top crust followed by layers of flaky pastry.  THEN, there is this delicious sweet cream filling followed by more flaky pastry.  It is SOOOO much better than anything you could purchase from a bakery!  It is served warm and if you pair it with some fruit and coffee...your morning will be complete!  Is your mouth watering yet???  Here's how you make it...
Ingredients:
2 pkgs crescent rolls
2 8oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish.  First make the cream cheese mixture by combining the cream cheese, 1 cup sugar and vanilla.  Unroll 1 pkg of of crescent rolls onto bottom of baking dish.  Don't worry about it fitting in your pan, it will spread on it's own.  Spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the crescent rolls.  Now lay the second roll on top of the cheese mixture.  Pour the melted butter on top.  Mix 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon together.  Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture on top of the butter.  Bake for about 35 minutes until golden brown.


Look closely at all that yummy goodness!

You can even half the recipe if your family is smaller, but I think you will want to make the whole thing and eat it all!!!

Tons of calories...but it's the holidays and time to CELEBRATE!

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet!
