Serves: 24 (small portions)
2 pkg. Pillsbury crescent rolls
2 pkg. (80z.) cream cheese
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg yolk + 1 egg white
Lay out one crescent roll's dough across the bottom of a greased 9x13 glass casserole dish. Mix cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and egg yolk using an electric mixer. Spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the dough, covering evenly. Layer the second crescent roll's dough across the top. Brush on beaten egg white.
Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees until top is golden brown. Let cool and cut into squares for serving.
Optional: sprinkle top with cinnamon sugar.
Alternate: You may also make 12 independent danishes by breaking apart the crescent rolls, placing a dollop of the cream cheese mixture on each triangle, then folding the dough over the cheese mixture as desired. Bake on cookie sheet or in a glass casserole dish (spread danishes apart so they do no t touch.)
