…..desserts!!!! Oh my word….I love this time of year. Spiced cider….roasting marshmallows….pumpkin this and that……just trying new recipes!!! Which leads me to this next series of pictures! When we had our Cajun night I just didn’t know what kind of dessert to offer…..I needed something easy…..but yummy! And…..I’m really not into the whole bread pudding thing…. which is kind of a southern dessert…. that would have gone well with our Cajun evening…..so my friend Cindy to the rescue!! She suggests a yummy ‘sopapilla’?!?!?!?!! ok….well…..I guess we could also go with the Mexican theme!!!! I thought …..what the heck……it met both my criteria….easy and yummy….and the cinnamon will make it a fall dish! So…technically….you could call this anything you want! Not knowing how much to make and who would want dessert….we choose to make two pans!!! Needless to say…..it was devoured with no leftovers to spare….I didn’t even get to try a piece! But….since then I have been asked to share the recipe on my blog! So….while I had my hunters here I made them the dessert and took the pics along the way!!!! And…..I finally got to try a piece….and……..yes……yummy!!!!!! As a matter of fact….one of the guys from Texas took it upon himself to have 4……yes…..four….pieces….in one evening!!!! We had a lot of laughs on that one!!!! So follow the pics and you can have some too!!!
Cast of characters….
2 cans (8oz. each) Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
2 packages (8 0z. each) cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
Heat oven to 350 degrees
In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and 1 cup of the sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in vanilla. Spread over dough in baking dish. CAUTION…….DO NOT LICK BEATERS!!!!…..or you will become addicted and need to consume prior to spreading on dough…..hee hee!!! Licking the beaters and scraping the bowl is always my favorite part!!!!!
Unroll second can of dough. Carefully place on top of cream cheese layer. Pinch seams together.
Pour melted butter evenly over top. Mix remaining 1/2 cup sugar with the cinnamon, and sprinkle evenly over the butter.
Bake about 30 minutes or until center is set. Cool slightly, about 20 minutes. Refrigerate for easy cutting. Cover and refrigerate any remaining bars.
Now….you could top these amazing creations with honey, caramel, chocolate……whatever your hearts desire. We choose to eat them plain and savor every bite!!!! You need to store these in the refrigerator, but are best served warm. Heat bars in microwave uncovered 5 to 10 seconds to rewarm.
Be warned…..I have another dessert that I will post soon!!!!
Be Glad In It!!!!
