Originally titled: Cream Cheese Croissant Squares
I think my title is more accurate.
These geometric pastries have been a big hit among my sisters and friends.
They smell delicious when reheated, and its gooey cream cheese interior with its cinnamon-y chewy dough will make you cry tears of joy.
I'd like to thank yoyomax12 for introducing this to my life.
Okay, let's begin!
First things first: ingredients.
For this, you'll need 2 tubes of crescent dough delivered by the Pillsbury Doughboy, a bowl of sugar, another bowl of sugar but with cinnamon this time around, and your blocks of dairy (cream cheese and butter).
We'll begin by unraveling the cream cheese from its wrapper. Make it comfortable around the kitchen. We wouldn't want uneasy cream cheese in our pastries, right?
Once it unwinds and soften up, plop it into the first bowl of sugar.
Now that it's cozy, attack it while it's still vulnerable.
To get things heated up, stick the bowl into a microwave for about 30 seconds.
Stir to combine thoroughly. Moving along, now...
The bowl of cinnamon and sugar turns into a cinnamon sugar mixture. Shocking!
Don't forget to grease the pan!
Now it's time for the Pillsbury Doughboy to shine. Unravel the can of crescent dough and spread it out on the greased pan.
Pinch up the seams. They're not wanted here, sadly.
United, there will be no spillage in our crescent triangles.
Our filling will be spread over the dough.
Now unravel the second canister of dough on top of the filling. This time, you need not worry about the seams.
Waddup, cinnamon sugar?
Spread it around. Make some hills and troughs.
It should look like sand, wet and dry.
Now is the time for our butter to shine in its greasy goodness.
You know what comes next...
Let it swim in the melted fat. DELICIOUS.
Now to stick it in a 375 degree oven for 25 minutes.
This is the result of said 25 minute session in a 375 degree oven.
You know how I feel about cross-section views of food. (Love 'em.)
When warm, the melty cream cheese filling blends with the flaky cinnamon-y buttery top and chewy crescent crust. Feel free to add any sort of chopped nuts (pecans are great) on top for more texture.
