Sopapilla Cheesecake Bars

Recipe printed from Jenn's Food Journey, sent from my mom

2 (8oz.) cans crescent rolls
2 (8oz.) packages cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 vanilla bean, split and seeded
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.  Unroll one can of crescent rolls and lay flat in the bottom of the prepared dish. Stretch the rolls to cover the bottom of the pan and pinch any seams closed.

In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, vanilla, and vanilla bean until combined and smooth.  Spread mixture over top of crescent roll.  Unroll the remaining can of crescent rolls and lay on top, stretching to cover and pinching seams closed.

Mix together remaining sugar and cinnamon.  Brush melted butter over top crescent roll.  Sprinkle on the sugar cinnamon mixture.  Bake for 30 minutes or until top is golden brown.  Let cool for approximately 20 minutes and then put in refrigerator to completely chill before cutting.  Enjoy!!
