Ingredients

  • 2 8oz Cans refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 8oz packages cream cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar divided
  • 2 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Mix 1 cup sugar with cinnamon and nutmeg. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of this mixture onto the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  • Gently roll out one can of the crescent roll dough on top of the sprinkled sugar mixture, in a sheet - press all seams together.*
  • Beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add and beat in the remaining 3/4 cup of sugar.  Then, beat in the egg and maple syrup. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the crescent roll dough in baking pan.
  • Place the second can of crescent roll dough on top of the cream cheese mixture.  Pinch seams together. Sprinkle the remaining sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg mixture on top.
  • Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. This dessert can be served warm or cold, whatever your preference! Let it set and cool down a bit before serving or pop it into the fridge and serve it later!

Notes

*This part is a bit tricky. Keeping the dough rolled, lay the beginning of your dough across the top end of your baking dish and unravel slowly until you get to the bottom. You can fold the end of dough over if it doesn't quite fit into your dish or cut the ends off if you want it to fit perfectly.
