Cream Cheese Delights

Let me start by saying, I LOVE cream cheese! I was so excited when cream cheese was our ingredient of the week because I have so many favorite recipes that include it. I love it so much I can pretty much eat it plain. That may sound gross, but it seriously tastes good with practically everything!

The recipe I chose to make this week is for Cream Cheese Delights. This is a recipe that my family has been making the past few years and it's always a hit. If you ever need a great recipe that will make men weak in their knees, you have to make these! They are addictive and always one of the first items gone when I have friends over. One of Nick's (my husband) friends always requests these and I make it for his birthday every year. The only problem with the little squares, is that you can't just eat one! And I forgot to mention how simple they are to make. This is a recipe that even the most novice baker can make perfectly.

Happy Baking!

Cream Cheese Delights

2 packages Pillsbury Crescent Sheets
2 8 oz. packages cream cheese
1t vanilla
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 t cinnamon
1/2 c butter, melted

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix together in bowl cream cheese (at room temperature), 1/2 cup sugar, and vanilla.

2. In a 9x13 in. pan lay out the first sheet of dough. Cover dough with cream cheese mixture and top with other sheet of dough.

3. Melt butter and pour over dough. In a bowl mix 1/4 c sugar, 1/4 c brown sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle over dough until covered. Bake for 30 minutes.

4. You can serve it warm, but I let it cool. Then I put it in the refrigerator until fully chilled. If I'm in a hurry I will put it in the freezer until it feels solid. Once chilled I cut it and serve in little squares or bars.
