Sopapilla Cheesecake

So I was looking for a dessert type recipe for a family get-together tonight and came across one on It looked pretty good, but didn't have any idea how it would turn, but decided to try it anyways. Of course, I forgot to take a picture of it before it got cut into, and almost all gone, but I did get one afterwards. Hubby said it didn't look good, but he ate about 3 bowls full!! I have to admit, it's awesome! The person that came up with this recipe deserves BIG props!! I thought I would share it with you guys:

3 (8 ounce) packages softened cream cheese
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoonfuls vanilla extract
2 cans crescent rolls (or recipe creations)

1/2 cup melted butter
1 teaspoonful cinnamon
1/2 cup white sugar
1 small package sliced almonds

Preheat oven 350 degrees.
Blend together cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Roll out 1 can of crescent rolls and place in bottom of 9x13 greased pan. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over the top. Place second can of rolled out crescent rolls on top of dish. Drizzle melted butter evenly over top, then sprinkle with mixed together cinnamon and 1/2 cup white sugar. Top with sliced almonds and bake in preheated oven until top layer is puffy and golden brown, about 40-45 minutes. Enjoy!!!

Yields 12-18 squares
