Churro cheese cake?

This has been a very run of the mill week. House is a mess, trying to get laundry under control, but there's that troll that keeps putting clothes in the baskets, art class for me, school for the kids.  Madd Hatter started art this week. She really likes it.  Now to get the other two in swimming.  You wouldn't think this, but swimming is really popular up here in Alaska. I have to be on top of it since it's a first come first serve type of thing.  What I did want to blog about is this amazingly sinful creation a friend pinned on pinterest. A churro cheese cake type thing.
What you need -
2 Pilsbury crescent rolls
2 blocks of cream cheese
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 cup of sugar (split in half)
1 egg
2 tablespoons cinnamon
You put one sheet of rolls in a greased 13×9 baking dish. Like its a crust. Mix cheese, vanilla, egg 1/2 cup sugar. Lay the mixture on your crust. Lay the other roll sheet on top. Mix rest of sugar & cinnamon and set aside.
Now the webpage says 350 for 30 minutes. It took mine closer to 45-50 min. It looked golden on top, but the under crust wasn't even cooked at 30 min.  It also said to sprinkle on the cinnamon sugar after it was baked. I took mine out at the 30 min mark to check it. I sprinkled half of the mixture on and put it back in. Then once it was done baking I sprinkled the rest. That gave it this crispy sugar shell on top that was really good.
Did this taste like the churros I eat at an amusement park? No, but this was really goooood! Glad I made it. Plus it was a different dessert!
