Cooking Thursday

I made a new recipe this week that I have to share with you.  It's a twist on the Lemon Bars many of us have had.  This one uses crescent rolls as a base and has cream cheese in it too.  Yum!



Lemon Cream Cheese Bars

2  8 ounce packages crescent rolls (I use Pillsbury Recipe Creations w/o seams)
2 pkgs cream cheese, softened
6 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons melted butter
3 tablespoons sugar.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray 9x13 pan with cooking spray.
Lay one roll of crescent rolls in bottom of pan, stretching to make it fit.
Beat cream cheese with 1/2 cup sugar until smooth.  Add lemon juice.
Spread mix over crescent rolls in pan.
Unroll second roll of crescents over cream cheese, stretching it to fit pan.
Brush melted butter over top of crescent rolls, then sprinkle sugar over top.
Bake for 30 minutes until lightly browned.
When cool, keep in refrigerator.
