Sopapilla Cheesecake

2 cans crescent rolls
2 8oz cream cheese
1 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Beat sugar, cream cheese and vanilla together. Spray a 9x13 pan w/ Pam.
Roll out 1 can of crescent rolls in pan. Press edges together.
Spread cream cheese mixture on crescent rolls. Top w/ other can of crescent rolls.
I found it easier to work w/ the 2nd roll of crescents when you left it in the
frig...that way they don't get soft while you’re making the filling

Topping
1 stick of margarine-melted
1/2-3/4 c sugar
1-2 tsp cinnamon
Mix sugar and cinnamon together.
Pour melted margarine over rolls.
Sprinkle sugar mixture on top.
Bake 25-35 mins.
