Pastry Stuff – decadent taste treat

September 26, 2011

My mom first made this a number of years ago as a breakfast dish on Christmas morning.  Between the cream cheese, sugar, butter, and pastry, it’s a pretty decadent dish, so Christmas morning is probably one of the few times you might think, yeaH! thIs is a toTAlly  nOrmal breakFAst!!!!  Well, breakfast, dessert, warm, cold – whenever and however it’s served, it is adored and devoured.  Fantastic since it involves only a handful of ingredients and minimal prep time.    And yes, I have always called it pastry stuff.

Pastry Stuff

– 2 cans of crescent rolls

– 2 packages of cream cheese

– 1 cup of sugar

– teaspoon or so of vanilla

– 1/8 cup of sugar mixed with 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon

– 1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter

Preheat the oven to 375.  Spray a 9 by 13 pan with cooking spray to grease it.

Unroll a can of crescent rolls.  Pinch all the crescent joints together so you have a single sheet.  Throw a little flour on the counter and roll out the sheet further so that it can cover the bottom of the dish.   Then press said sheet into the bottom of the dish.

Combine/mix the (softened) cream cheese with the sugar and vanilla. Spread that mixture on top of the crescent sheet.  Roll out the second sheet of crescent rolls – will need to get that one large enough to cover the cream cheese mixture (can be tricky).

Dust the sugar/cinnamon combo on top of the second pastry sheet. Then pour the 1/2 cup (melted) butter on top.

Bake for 20 minutes or until the top is nice golden.

– Yes, you could conceivably reduce the amount of sugar and cream cheese (original recipe was around half as much – trust me, it’s better with more).  And you could also reduce the butter on top.
