Sopapilla Cheesecake

I wish I had invented this dessert.  Sadly, I did not.  And  I realize it's all over the internet, but I have to talk about it anyway.  It's that good.  Serve it warm or cold - it won't matter because it won't last very long anyhow. At least, not at my house!
Start with two blocks of cream cheese (here I'm using Neufchatel - same diff), 1 c. sugar, 2 rolls cresent rolls, 1 stick melted butter, 1 T. vanilla, and some cinnamon sugar.
Usually I use my 13x9 deep dish, but it was busy with Coca Cola cake, so I used this square-ish one.  Spread out one of the rolls of cresents on the bottom of the greased dish. 
Don't worry if it doesn't look perfect. Who will know?
I'm only obsessive-compulsive about housework, not cooking.
Cream the softened cream cheese with the sugar and add the vanilla.
Spread that over your cresent rolls.
Top with the other opened can of cresent rolls.
Now, pour melted butter over all of it. Yes - a whole stick of butter.  It sinks into the rolls.  Top with a little cinnamon sugar.  Pop it into the oven with dinner so you don't have the oven on twice as long - almost an hour at 350.  Should look like this:
and smell like heaven.
See the layers?  Oh, yeah.  Top it with something or leave it plain.  This time I had some Apple Cinnamon ice cream topping I put on individual servings, but some people here like it plain.  
And if there is any left over, they will eat it for breakfast.
I guarantee you will love this - make it for your peeps sometime and you'll see!

I am so glad that I stopped by. I have been looking in all the wrong places if this has been all over the blog world. Of course, there are 2,764,893,001 blogs in the world!! I am copying down the recipe to try when the weather cools down. I can't face the thought of turning on the oven.
