Sopapilla Cheesecake Bars

I saw this floating around pinterest a while back, and two of my friends recently made them to bring to our small group.  They were tasty, so I wanted to try them myself.  These sure aren't overly healthy, but they are really tasty, and very easy. Perfect to bring to any group gathering.  One thing I did do, was use light cream cheese.  Not sure if that made a difference, but every little bit counts I think.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Bars
From: Cookies and Cups
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 30 min

2 cans crescent rolls
2 (8oz) packages cream cheese (room temperature)
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp Cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350

2. Unroll 1 can of crescent rolls and lay flat in bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Stretch rolls to cover teh bottom of the pan if needed.  Pinch any seams closed.

3. In a mixing bowl combine cream cheese, 1 cup sugar and vanilla until combined and smooth.  Spread over top of the crescent rolls.

4. Unroll your remaining can of crescent rolls and lay this on top of the cream cheese mixture, again pinching closed any open seams.

5. Pour melted butter on top of the crescent rolls.

6.  In a bowl mix the remaining sugar and Tbsp cinnamon together and sprinkle that evenly on top of butter.

7.  Bake for 30 minutes until top is golden brown.

8.  Let cool for approximately 20 minutes and then put in refrigerator to completely chill before cutting into squares.
