Two Quick Things . . .

Don't have time to write a lot right at the moment but I did want to pass on two things.

First of all, there's a veritable flurry of recipe discussion going on over at the Backyard Fence. Head on over there to read and/or contribute.

Also, for those of you wanted the green bean casserole Cream Cheese Bar recipe, here it is! Please be warned that just reading the recipe will cause you to gain seven pounds.

Cream Cheese Bars

(This is the original recipe; however, the recipe can also be cut in half and put in a square pan instead of the 9x13 pan.)

2 cans of crescent rolls
2 8-oz. packages cream cheese (light is fine)
1 C sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
nuts (optional)

Spray pan with cooking spray. Spread out one package of rolls (or half package, if halving recipe.) Beat cream cheese (for about a minute) with sugar, vanilla and eggs and pour over first layer of rolls.

Spread remaining rolls on top.

Melt 4-5 T butter; brush over rolls. Sprinkle butter with 1/2 C sugar mixed with 2 t. cinnamon. Can also sprinkle nuts on top.

Bake till light brown; about 30 minutes at 350. Can serve warm or chilled.

Absolutely one of our favorites and you have the Smith Family Permission to label them "green beans" if you really want to keep them safe from marauders.

This sounds scrumptious! Thank you for sharing. Looking forward to making this for our next gathering ... and watching faces when guests discover we're having "Green Beans" for dessert! ;o)

Okay, I haven't been able to stop thinking about these since reading your recipe. I love cream cheese so I'll definitely have to whip some up. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
