  • 2 packages cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cans crescent dough sheets
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons butter softened
  • Nonstick cooking spray


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with a nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Beat softened cream cheese with 1 cup white sugar and vanilla until smooth.
  4. Unroll one can of crescent dough sheets and press it into the bottom of the baking pan. If you don't have dough sheets you can use crescent dough and just seal the seams together with a rolling pin to shape a large rectangle sheet.
  5. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly on top of the dough sheet in the baking pan.
  6. Unroll the 2nd can of crescent dough sheets and lay on top of the cream cheese filling.
  7. Stir together the remaining 1/2 cup of white sugar and cinnamon.
  8. Spread the butter evenly over the top dough sheet with a butter knife.
  9. Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar mixture evenly over the buttered dough sheet.
  10. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the crescent dough has puffed and turned golden brown.
  11. You can serve this with honey if you choose.
