I was in the mood for chocolate today until I came across this recipe. I haven’t made these in a long time but they are delicious ~ and fattening!!! My neighbor gave me this recipe when we lived in NYC and it’s a favorite. I never use a whole stick of butter to melt for over the top ~ more like 2 or 3 tablespoons.
Cinnamon Cream Cheese Bars
2 (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 tsp lemon juice or vanilla
2 packages pillsbury crescent rolls
1 stick butter
cinnamon and sugar
Preheat oven to 350º. Spread one crescent roll dough in 9×13 ungreased pan. In large bowl, mix both cream cheeses with sugar and lemon juice or vanilla. Spread cream cheese mixture over crescent dough. Cover with other crescent roll dough (this will not be perfect ~ just do the best you can). Melt one stick of butter and pour over top dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture and bake for 30 minutes. Cut into bars when cool. Refrigerate.
