Cream Cheese Bars

This is a recipe that was given to me by a neighbor. They are so easy to make but you would never guess that by the taste! I usually wouldn't even try a bar that was made with crescent rolls, however, I tried these and loved them even before knowing that there were crescent rolls in them!


2 - Tubes Original Crescent Rolls
2 - 8 oz. Boxes Cream Cheese
1 Cup Sugar (divided)
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 tsp. Almond Extract
1 Egg


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix cream cheese, vanilla, almond, 3/4 cup sugar and egg yolk. Beat with mixer until creamy. Spray 9x13 pan with nonstick spray. Spread 1 tube
crescent roll evenly over bottom of pan, sealing seams with fingers. Spread mixture evenly over crescent.

Cover mixture with second tube of crescent rolls, again spreading evenly & sealing seems. Beat egg white with fork until frothy, spread evenly over top. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup sugar on top layer.

Bake 20 minutes.

Refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving.
