Sopapilla Cheesecake Dessert

3 (8oz) pkges cream cheese, soft
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 (8oz) cans crescent roll dough
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup sliced almonds

Notes/Story: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat the cream cheese with 1 1/2 cups sugar and the vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth. Unroll the cans of crescent roll dough and use a rolling pin to shape the piece into 9x13 inch rectangles. Press one piece into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Evenly spread the cream cheese mixture into the baking dish, then cover with the remaining piece of crescent dough.

Drizzle the melted butter evenly over the top of the cheesecake. Stir the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar together with the cinnamon in a small bowl, and sprinkle over the cheesecake along with the almonds.

Bake in the preheated oven until the crescent dough has puffed and turned golden brown, about 45 min. Cool completely in the pan before cutting into 12 squares.

I had a piece of this at a work potluck. So good! 10/10 good.
