Crescent Heaven

Sorry it has taken me SO very long to post, but I was diagnosed with diabetes and as a baker it really threw me for a loop! All my yummy treats are now poison to me?! Noooooooo!!

So now while I still bake for others I must now learn to bake for me and others like me.

So are you ready to adapt? Adjust? And over come! Hoo rah!!

So this is the yummy smell coming from my kitchen right now.. Crescent heaven aka crescent crack!

What you’ll need:
2 rolls of crescent rolls.
I used walmart brand as it has the least sugar carb and fat. I know right? Total shocker!
8 oz philly cream cheese LIGHT (softened)
1/2 cup + 1/4 cup Splenda
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup I can’t believe it not butter spread -LIGHT! (Melted)
1 tbsp cinnamon

Unroll and spread 1can of the crescent rolls out on the bottom of un-greased pan.

Spread mixture evenly over crescent roll. Unroll and spread remaining crescent roll over the cream cheese mixture.

Spread melted “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter” spread over the top. Mix the 1/4 cup Splenda with the tbsp cinnamon and sprinkle over the “butter”.

Yeah it’s a lot to put on, but worth it! Bake 350 for 20-30 minutes. Serves 16!

Ok can I just say YUM!! I would even say add some no sugar added apple sauce with cinnamon, cherry pie filling, peaches with cinnamon, or anything else like that to the top of the cream cheese before adding the top crescent roll sheet! Maybe a dolup of low fat whipped topping!!
