This bar is somewhere between a cinnamon roll and churros. Tender dough, creamy cheesecake and sweet cinnamon sugar come together for a deliciously simple recipe.

What You Need
2 pkg. (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar, divided
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
2 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
2 cans (8 oz. each) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

Make It

Heat oven to 350ºF.

Beat cream cheese and 1/4 cup sugar in medium bowl with mixer until blended. Add vanilla; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating on low speed after each just until blended.

Combine cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle half onto bottom of 13×9-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray. Unroll 1 can crescent dough on lightly floured surface; firmly press perforations and seams together to seal. Roll out dough to 13×9-inch rectangle; place in prepared pan. Spread with cream cheese mixture.

Repeat rolling out of dough with remaining can of crescent dough; place over cream cheese-topped dough in pan. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar.

Bake 25 to 30 min. or until golden brown. Cool completely before cutting into bars.

Annie Simmons Donaldson from WOLF MOON (and MOONSTRUCK: LIES) pulls out this recipe any time she needs something fast–whether for the kids gathering at her house to play or for when the Moonstruck Mates gather for a kaffeeklatsch. It’s not often that Sean “Boomer” Donaldson or any of the other Wolves get a chance to taste. Maybe Annie should double the recipe next time. 😉
