There is no secret over here I am not a great baker. I freeze break and bake cookies….try not to break them exactly on the line so they don’t come out perfectly round and try to pawn them off as homemade. There I said it. So I enlisted my best friend (and Bridesmaid Kelly) who is super talented to come over and help me whip up the easiest recipe for you. It is a recipe she made growing up and she graciously shared it with us.
You read that right….it is very easy. Like she was there to supervise but I made it and didn’t mess it up. No burning and it has seriously 6 ingredients (3 of which I didn’t have she was like “Amanda honestly you don’t have sugar or one egg at all?”)…guilty.
I brought them into work and they were gone in 15 minutes. The next potluck you have. Bring them. You will be the talk of the office.
Without further ado.
These are some essentials parts of this recipe and to any kinds of cooking in my tiny condo.
First try to remember to leave your cream cheese out to soften. Do not use fat free. It doesn’t work.
Second get out your essentials.
Gather your supplies. You will need a large mixing bowl, a 9 x 13 pan, measuring cup, tsp and mixer. In my case it is like a true scavenger hunt to find where I have crammed these above related.
Find your hand mixer. Pray it works. I mean seriously look at that price sticker. Was this purchased in 1985? Check that price we were bargaining shopping even in the 80’s (Mark wonders why we need a registry).
Remember to empty out the storage from your oven (I have no pantry…you read that right).
This is where I ditch the DSLR for my iPhone….it’s hard to balance a glass of wine and that heavy camera am I right?
Take your pan (no need to grease that crescent roll has plenty of butter) and drop the roll in the middle. Then unfold it out straight and with your fingers press it down into the pan.
In your mixing bowl take your softened cream cheese (yes both packages) and drop them in. Dump one cup of sugar in. I know one cup but it serves a lot…it will get distributed.
Using your hand mixer (yes it worked!) Go to town with this.
Then add your vanilla and egg yolk. Try not to fail at life like this video. We saw it on youtube it didn’t look that hard. I majorly failed. I think my water bottle was too flimsy. Has anyone else been successful with it?
Mix this bad boy up. Seriously how good does that look?
Spread mixture over the crescent roll. I’m not going to lie and tell you I didn’t lick the beaters….and bowl ( I know I dressed up for y’all….yikes).
Put second package of crescent rolls over the cream cheese mixture.
Bake for 25 mins at 350 degrees.
While baking enjoy some adult libations and snack choices.
When done take out and immediately place in refrigerator. You may want to clear space ahead of time. This wasn’t a problem for me….I moved some wine over.
Leave in the fridge until cooled (let’s say 1-2 hours). Plenty of time to finish that bottle of red.
Mix some powdered sugar with milk until you get a thick consistency and then drizzle over the top.
Pop some tinfoil over it and place in the fridge until ready to serve.
Kelly gave me some great advice. Cut it into pieces at home. You don’t want somebody from your office going after your baking pan with that one big kitchen communal knife. Thanks Kelly you are always thinking.
Relish in the fact you brought in dessert. It is so good. It is not too sweet and it tastes even better with some coffee around 9am….and around 3pm for a snack.
I told you it was pretty easy! Do you have a similar recipe? What is your go to quick recipe? Hope you try it and let me know your thoughts! xoxoxo
