Okay you need to make these now!! Wait, read this first, because I am super witty, but then, go make these! I made these out of desperation last minute and I can tell you right now, I have made them again already. These were a last minute treat for my hot Friday night date. Which is to say, I stayed home with Pork Chop and my friend and her baby came over. You would have thought Santa was coming the way Pork Chop was acting. He loves his little cousin so much. He is always "she is so cute!" "She is my favorite baby ever!" And when I asked him the night before who was coming he said "Hannah, the cutest baby ever!" I love how much he loves her.
|This is pretty much all you need, but I forgot to picture the vanilla bean paste and the cinnamon. Just try to pretend it's there.|
So this was the fastest desert ever. I looked on pintrest for something easy and quick. And this is what I found. It was called a cream cheese square, which is kind of gross. So I renamed it a cheesecake bar, because that sounds classy.
Here is the link I found. Basically you need just a few things and it was magic! I was worried that it would be weird as there were no eggs, and I figured the cheese part would be runny and gross. I was wrong, but don't tell anyone.
|See when I opened the tube I was trying to keep the dough together, the cut lines kept falling apart. If I go to the states I am going to get a whole bunch of the sheets and freeze them and never share.|
found on Piarecipes
-2 tubes of 8 count crescent rolls
-2 blocks of cream cheese
-1 TBSP vanilla ( I used vanilla bean paste, because I am fancy like that)
-1 cup sugar
-1/4 cup sugar
-1 TBSP cinnamon
-1/2 cup butter (the recipe said margarine but we don't have that so I used butter.)
|The filling was thick but easy to spread, sort of.|
Cream the two blocks of cream cheese, add the vanilla and the 1 cup of sugar. It will be firm, but spreadable. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the dough. Be careful to make it even and not smoosh the dough. Then roll out the other tube of rolls and lay on top. Do not press it down or you will make a huge mess, just do your best.
Melt the butter and pour it over the top of the bars, then mix the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle that on. I sort of globbed it on by mistake, but it was all good.
|See how blobby my sugar mixture is? Well it worked out.|
So then you bake it until the top has become crispy and the butter is no longer really there. It takes my oven around 18-20 minutes. Remove and cool. I then place it in the fridge to help the cream cheese set up, it is very soft when you serve it at room temperature.
|I really didn't think there was enough filling but it turned out to be the perfect amount. So good! And so easy to cut, I thought it was going to smoosh.|
