Wa-La! Sopapilla Cheesecake Bars (I know, it's supposed to be oila, with an accent thingy, but I don't even know if I spelled that right...):
(Some of you weren't able to use the link to the recipe on the last post, so here it is without all the nice pictures from Cookies and Cups. For those who don't care, scroll down for the rest of the post!):
- 2 cans Crescent Rolls
- 2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese (room temp)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350
- Unroll 1 can of crescent rolls and lay flat in the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish. Stretch the rolls to cover the bottom of the pan. Pinch any seams closed.
- In a mixing bowl combine cream cheese, 1 cup sugar and vanilla until combined and smooth.
- Spread this over top of the crescent roll.
- Unroll your remaining can of crescent rolls and lay this on top of the cream cheese mixture, again, pinching closed any open seams.
- Pour your melted butter on top of the crescent roll.
- In a bowl mix the remaining sugar and tablespoon of cinnamon together and sprinkle that evenly on top of butter.
- Bake for 30 minutes until top is golden brown.
- Let cool for approximately 20 minutes and then put in refrigerator to completelychill before cutting into squares.
I have even offered to PAY people to sew buttons on for me (thanks to Joan, who sewed the buttons on my Baby Surprise Jacket, and didn't even want the $5 I said I'd give her for doing it!). Now, when someone is paying ME to put buttons on, since I do take on finishing projects through The Spinning Room, I gladly do it. No problems there. Money is a big motivator which is why I offered it to Joan. She happily took on the job and didn't even want the green.
Why I suddenly had this urge to put buttons on, I can't explain but figured I better capitalize on this enthusiasm while it lasted. So, what's wrong with this picture?:

Here's what it's supposed to look like:
Threw me over the edge, I tell ya. So, snip , snip and I had to re-do them:

And after all that procrastinating and telling you about procrastinating, guess how long it took me to put the buttons on these? Five. Minutes.
How about some updates?
Here is the progress on my Froot Loop socks (the ones I knit during my lunch breaks and when I get assigned to the apple barn on a very slow, rainy, cold day -- this past Thursday):
I love the pinks in this and the pattern has been pretty easy to memorize. When I get a little more knitted, I'll show you anothe picture so you can actually see the "froot loops". Very cute.
And I started the Boogie Vest for the knit-along going on at The Spinning Room (starting today):
The chimmey is done!:
