If you’ve never had Monkey Bread you are in for a treat.  It is ooey-gooey and oh-so-delicious.  And ridiculously easy.  The ONLY problem with this recipe from the Pioneer Woman is that it is so darn hard to stop eating it!

crescent roll cheesecake pies

 

Although the internet has lots of similar recipes, I like this one from  AllRecipe.com because it includes honey to drizzle on the pieces once served.

As an FYI – recently Pillsbury introduced ‘seamless’ crescent roll dough packages!

INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Mexican vanilla extract
  • 2 (8 ounce) cans refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup honey
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare a 9×13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Beat the cream cheese with 1 cup of sugar and the vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth.
  3. Unroll the cans of crescent roll dough, and use a rolling pin to shape each piece into 9×13 inch rectangles. Press one piece into the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish. Evenly spread the cream cheese mixture into the baking dish, then cover with the remaining piece of crescent dough. Stir together 3/4 cup of sugar, cinnamon, and butter. Dot the mixture over the top of the cheesecake. 
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the crescent dough has puffed and turned golden brown, about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and drizzle with honey. Cool completely in the pan before cutting into 12 squares.
