Are you looking for the perfect dessert to bring to a pot luck or a party? This is the dessert for you. Do you like cheesecake? This recipe combines the best of cheesecake and a wonderful south of the border sweet flavor. I have never brought this treat to a party and come home with anything left in the dish. Even if you arent a seasoned baker, you can put together this scrumptious dessert quickly, and everyone will be asking you for your recipe.

Ingredients

Crescent roll 16 Ounce (2 cans)
Cream cheese 16 Ounce (2 packs)
Sugar 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
Butter 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) , melted
Cinnamon 2 Teaspoon
Lemon juice/Orange juice 1 Teaspoon
Lemon zest/Orange peel 1/2 Teaspoon

Directions

GETTING READY

1. Line the bottom of a 9 x 13 casserole dish with 1 can of rolls. The dough can be stretched a bit to cover the bottom of the dish, if you roll it out with a rolling pin the pre cut lines will disappear.

MAKING

2. In a medium sized mixing bowl combine cream cheese, 1 1/2 cups of sugar, vanilla, lemon zest, and lemon juice.

3. Spread this over the layer of crescent rolls in the baking dish.

4. Spread the remaining can of crescent rolls over the cream cheese layer.

5. In a small bowl, combine 2 teaspoons of cinnamon and 1/2 cup of sugar.

6. Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar over the top layer of crescent rolls and then drizzle all with melted butter.

7. Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is lightly browned.

SERVING

8. Serve right away.

TIPS

If you really want to send this dessert over the edge, you may want to serve this with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
