Jen was sweet enough to email me this yesterday when I was looking for a yummy recipe, and it worked out perfectly because I had everything except the cherry pie filling right at home. She found it over at Southern Plate, and you really should head over there for fabulous step by step directions, but here’s what you’ll need:
1 can crescent rolls
On Sale $1.66, Use $1/2 from 3/28 SS
1 21 oz. can cherry pie filling (could also try a different filling – next time I’d like to try apple filling!)
It was $2.99 at Publix, so if you’re headed to Walmart you might grab it there. This was not the greatest bargain treat but it was SOOOOOO good!
1 1/2 bricks cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar (for filling)
1/4 cup sugar (for topping)
Use $.50/1 Domino Sugar HERE
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 stick melted butter or margarine
Heat over to 350 and grease 8×8 pan. Seperate crescent rolls into two squares (four crescents each). Beat softened cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar. Add vanilla and mix in. Set aside.
Layer one “square” on bottom of pan. Press out to remove seams and completely cover pan. Add cream cheese filling, then top with cherry pie filling. Layer remaining crescent rolls (again try to press out seams as well as you can, but mine were still there!) Top with butter or margarine, and 1/4 cup sugar. Bake in 350 oven for 35 to 45 minutes (mine took 38 minutes!)
Serve warm (my favorite) or cold (my hubby’s favorite!)
Thanks so much Jen for sending the recipe, and thanks to Southern Plate for this yummy treat!
