Creamy Cinnamon Squares

My neighbor gave me this recipe awhile ago and was going crazy about how fabulous it was. I though, "crescent rolls? Cream cheese? Cinnamon? Sounds good, but can't be anything to go crazy over." I have tried these and am in LOVE! Crazy, cinnamony, LOVE!!! I love that they're easy (you and the kids can prepare them in 5 minutes flat) and that they taste like yummy cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting. Note: for some reason, they are the most fabulous cold. So, let them cool for awhile, pop them in the fridge until completely cold, cut into squares, and try not to eat the whole pan by yourself.

I am not kidding. RUN, don't walk, and make this recipe. Seriously, what are you doing still reading this?....

Creamy Cinnamon Squares
Ingerdients:
2 cans Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
¾ c. white sugar
2 (8 oz. each) packages cream cheese
1 tsp. vanilla

Topping:
¼ c. white sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Directions:
Spread 1 crescent roll package on bottom of greased 9 x 13 cake pan. Mix together 2 packages cream cheese, ¾ c. sugar, and 1 tsp. vanilla and spread on top of crescent roll. Spread 2nd crescent roll package on top of mixture. Mix ¼ c. sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon and sprinkle on top of 2nd crescent roll. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Cool for awhile, then pop into the fridge until completely cold. Cut into squares and enjoy!

Notes: Next time, I am thinking about mixing some homemade apple pie filling in with the cream cheese. I'll post a review!
