Cream Cheese Surprise

I have a delicious treat for you today!  A friend that I used to work with brought this to a company holiday luncheon and I knew I had to get the recipe ASAP.  She emailed it to me and I made it twice in the first week!  Each time I made it, it lasted for about two days!  C loves it when I make this, he could eat the whole pan in one sitting.  Don't let him fool you, he could and would!  So let's get started!

Here's what you will need!
Sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract, one egg, two packages of crescent rolls, and two packages of softened cream cheese...that's all you need!  Start by unrolling one package of crescent rolls into a 9x13" glass pan, like so.  Try your best to cover the bottom and pinch the seams together.
Next, combine one cup of sugar with the two packages of softened cream cheese.
Then add one teaspoon of vanilla and one egg yolk.  Make sure that you save the egg white, you will need it later!
Now it should look like this!  Yum!
Spread it evenly over your prepared crescent rolls.
Then place the second package of crescent rolls over the top.  This part is a little tricky to get the whole pan covered.  I usually use three sections up and down and then rip apart the fourth section and place it in the holes.  It doesn't look that pretty, but it doesn't won't show too much.  Try to pinch the seams together if you can.
Remember that egg white?  This is where you need it.  Brush it onto the tops of the crescent rolls, it helps them brown up and get extra yummy!
Finally, in a small bowl combine 1/4 cup of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon (you can adjust these to your liking, these are my rough estimates).  Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the egg whites.
Place in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes and wait...patiently.  For soon you will have this!
You need to store it in the refrigerator if you don't eat it all at once, but come on you know you will!  I prefer to eat this cold, C prefers to heat it up for a little bit in the microwave.  Either way it's a win-win.  It's perfect for breakfast when you have company over.  You can make it a day or two ahead, serve it with some fruit and make your guests day.  Or you can just eat it all day like we's your call!  Hope you enjoy it!

For those who don't care for the pictures and just want the recipe:

1 cup of sugar
2 packages crescent rolls
2 packages cream cheese, softened
1 egg, separated
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/4 cup of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Unroll one package of crescent rolls in a 9x13" pan, pinching seams together.  Combine softened cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and egg yolk.  Save the egg white, you will need it later.  Spread mixture evenly over crescent rolls.  Unroll second package of crescent rolls over cream cheese mixture, pinch the seams again.  Brush egg white over the rolls.  Combine 1/4 cup of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon in a small bowl.  Sprinkle over the egg whites.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Enjoy!
