Happy Easter and Cream Cheese Crescent Squares


Since I am completely awful about keeping a journal or scrapbooking, I hope you bear with me as I post a few pictures from our family's weekend ;) I hope you had a wonderful Easter as well. Ours was pretty low key but a lot of yummy food, family and fun. We had our annual easter egg hunt Saturday with a big yummy breakfast. The kids got stuffed on candy and the adults were able to enjoy a smorgasbord of delicious breakfast items. We had Carmel Apple Waffles,  Cheesy Hash browns, Scrambled Eggs, Juice, Fruit & this to-die for Cinnamon Cream Cheese Concoction my sister made. Oh my heavens--it is scary yummy! I told her to take every last leftover far, far away from me. I wanted to seriously eat the entire pan. Considering what is in it, that would NOT be a good idea for my waistline. I am not sure it is considered a breakfast food, it would be amazing as a dessert too. No matter how you slice it, it is unbelievably fattening and SO good!! If you dare make this recipe, just know you will want to have plenty of people to share it with or I promise, the leftovers will be devoured before you can even put it in the fridge :) Hope you had a great weekend and enjoy this recipe like we did!

Unrool the second crescent dough and lay them on top of the cream cheese layer. Do not press down. Pour the melted butter over the entire pan.
