Crescent Rolls Galore

IMG_0043Tonight for dinner I decided to try something fun that I saw online.  Autumn of course wanted to be up on the counter (in her normal attire of just a diaper and t-shirt) to help.

IMG_0048 We made these mummy hotdogs.  Ours didn’t turn out quite like the pictures I saw online, but that’s ok b/c we had fun making them together.  Autumn kept rolling the ball up in a dough and trying to cover them completely up.

IMG_0049 They ended up looking just fine and tasting great.  Note to self: wait until they cool down a little bit to put the mustard eyes b/c otherwise it just melts right off.  EWW.

IMG_0050 While those were in the oven we got our cream cheese sopapillas ready.  I was taking a picture of our mummy dogs when all of a sudden this can of crescent rolls that was sitting on the counter just exploded and scared the crap out of me!  I let out a scream and ended it scared Autumn.  Some of the dough went flying across the kitchen and landed on the cabinet!

IMG_0052 After we made our cream cheese sopapillas and had them baking away in the oven, we put on some Christmas music and danced around the kitchen and living room.  Autumn was standing on the counter and was shaking her hips so cute.  But she got all shy when I got the camera out.  She’s a good little dancer and we had fun enjoying the good food we had made.  I think I had more crescent roll dough tonight (3 cans worth) than I’ve had in the past 3 years combined.  But both the mummy dogs and cream cheese sopapillas were extremely tasty.

2 (8oz) pkgs of cream cheese
2 pkg of cresent rolls
1 & 1/2 C sugar (divided into 1 c. and 1/2c.)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 stick margarine or butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Line a sprayed 9x13 pan with one package of crescent rolls.
Mix cream cheese with 1 cup of sugar and the vanilla. Spread on top of rolls.
Cover that with the other pkg of crescent rolls.
Melt butter & mix with the other 1/2 C sugar. Pour on top and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. This also tastes good cold (so the recipe says but I haven't tried it yet, lol). This recipe may also be halved and baked in an 8x8 pan. Enjoy!
