Apple Pie Cheesecake Squares

I havent made anything since DHs birthday at the beach. These sounded easy enough! I just pulled them out of the oven and they smell great. I cant wait to cool them and taste.

Apple Pie Cheesecake Squares
From Blessed8/21/04 who got them from another nestie on the What's Cooking board :)

2 (8oz) cans crescent roll dough
8 oz light cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. powdered sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. lemon juice
1 (20 oz) can apple pie filling, or any flavor you desire
2 t. butter, melted
1/8 c. sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13" baking pan with non-stick spray

2) Press one can crescent roll dough evenly into the bottom of the baking pan. In a medium bowl, mix

together cream cheese, powdered sugar, egg, vanilla and lemon juice until smooth. Spread evenly over

crescent layer, stopping 1/2" from edges. Spoon apple pie filling over cream cheese layer. Unroll second can

of crescent roll dough and lay on top of apple pie layer-pinch seams together but do not press down.

3) Brush the top layer of crescent dough with melted butter. In a small bowl, combine sugar and

cinnamon-sprinkle evenly over top of butter layer. Bake for 25-30 minutes until top is crisp and golden.

Allow to cool before cutting into squares. Top with cool whip. Store in refrigerator.

Can't wait to hear if you liked 'em, and maybe see a pic! When I made them I brought them into work and everyone seemed to really love them - eat fast though, it doesn't keep for long before the dough gets soggy. :)
