Happy Labor Day and Nom Nom Monday!  I love Monday holidays.  There should be at least one of these every month.  I made Sopapilla for our family gathering.  My friend Kristen had this at her house one night, and I loved it.  I found a recipe for it on Chocolate Therapy, and decided today would be the perfect day to try it out.  It tastes like a cheesecake and a cinnamon roll had a baby.  A yummy baby!  

- 2 cans crescent rolls
- 16 oz of cream cheese
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup butter
-1/3 cup white sugar &1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon mixed together

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.  Spread one package of crescent rolls over the bottom of a glass 13"x9" baking pan.  The crescent rolls will completely cover the bottom of the pan.  

Mix together the softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla.  Spread the mixture over the crescent rolls.

Roll out the other can of crescent rolls over the cream cheese mixture.  This one is a little trickier, because with the layer underneath you can't go back and move the pieces. Though if you start out in the right place, it's not messy at all.  

Melt the butter in a small dish, and mix together the cinnamon and 1/3 cup of sugar in a separate dish.  

Using a brush spread the butter over the pastry, and any remaining butter can be gently poured over the top.  Thickly dust the top with the cinnamon and sugar mixture.  

Then pop into the oven for 25 - 30 minutes.  

They taste great served warm or cold.  I love the cinnamon sugar with the pastry, and the cream cheese.  MMM!!!

I'm going to go enjoy the end of my holiday weekend.  Happy DIYing, chris!
