Danish Cheese Squares

These are delicious as part of a breakfast or brunch.

2 tubes of crescent rolls (ok to use lowfat)
2 blocks of cream cheese *at room temp (ok to use lowfat)
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg yolk (save the white)

1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. chopped nuts (optional)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 egg white (whipped)

1. Spread one package of rolls into a 9x13 pan.
2. Mix the cream cheese blocks, 1 cup sugar, vanilla, and egg yolk. (Make sure that the cream cheese is at room temp, or there will be lots of lumps.) Spread mixture over the rolls.
3. Spread second package of rolls over cream cheese mixture.
4. Brush whipped egg white over the top. (Don't feel like you need to use it all, just make sure it is covered evenly.)
5. Mix the 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon together with the nuts. Sprinkle over the top, so that it is all covered.
6. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
7. Allow to cool and then serve.

This is good heated up, at room temp, or cold. I served it with fresh strawberries, but you can also serve it with cool whip or ice cream and have it as a dessert. Or just serve it plain. It is way yummy!!
