Sweet Tooth Satisfaction #2 ~ Cream Cheese Danish Bake
OK, so I know that this is not good for trying to lose my extra post baby weight
but if you're like me, sometimes you just gotta have something sweet.
I found this on allrecipes.com (great site btw). I always tweak the recipes to my liking though.
It's so easy, here's what you will need
(2) 8oz cans refrigerated crescent roll dough
(2) 8oz packs plain cream cheese
1 cup white sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter (melted)
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp or more ground cinnamon
Go ahead and preheat your oven to 350 F & grease a 9"x13" baking dish(I use a glass pyrex)
Then open 1 can of crescent roll dough, unroll them, & press in a single layer into the bottom of your dish.
both packs of cream cheese
(you can soften them in a glass bowl in the microwave for 20 seconds for easier mixing),
1 cup of sugar, &
1 teaspoon of vanilla
until it's smooth & creamy.
I used a handheld mixer to cream it nicely.
See how mine ripped so I used the smaller pieces to "patch up" where the cream cheese layer was showing. Trust me, this doe not have to be perfect....it still will taste yummy!
Go ahead & pour your melted butter over the whole top crescent layer.
Sprinkle that over the top of the butter.
Place your baking dish into your preheated oven & cook for 30min.
Sweet Tooth Satisfaction for sure!
