Cheesecake Sopapillas

I found a yummy recipe recently at Christy's blog, From Glitter to Gumdrops.

My family thought it was so delicious I decided everyone needs to know about them. I made just a few small changes (mainly a little less sugar and butter since I'm trying to drop some pounds). They are so easy, give them a try!

Sopapilla Cheesecake

2 cans Crescent seamless dough (the new stuff, very cool!)
1 8oz pkg of cream cheese
1 1/2 cup Sugar
1 1/4 sticks Butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Unroll one can of the new crescent seamless dough to cover the bottom of the pan. Mix cream cheese, 3/4 c. sugar, and 1 stick of softened butter. Spread over crescent rolls.
Unroll second can of dough over cream cheese mixture. Melt 1/4 stick of butter, add 3/4 c. of sugar and pour over top and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Bake at 350 degress Farenheit for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
Let cool, cut into squares and serve.

Off to Christy's blog I go to find some new recipes!

OK . . . if this is what you called "trimmed down" I just have to laugh. But this sounds like a winner . . . even if there are probably a jabillion calories in it.
Thnx for haring!
When is the big day? It's gotta be getting close!
How exciting!!! Congratulations!
Have a great weekend! Karen
