2 pkg
(8 ounce each) cream cheese

egg, yolk (save the egg white for the topping)
1 c

1 tsp

FOR TOPPING

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixer, blend cream cheese,egg yolk,sugar and vanilla. Set aside.

I use a 16x11 inch jelly roll baking pan. In this pan, spread a tube and a half of crescent rolls evenly onto bottom of pan.
3
Top bottom crescent layer with the can of apricot filling.
4
Spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the apricot filling layer.
5
Pat out the second tube and a half of crescent rolls to form a top crust and layer it on the top.
6
Beat the egg white and sugar for the topping until blended.
Spread this on top of the crescent roll topping to coat the entire top.
7
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes, until nicely browned.

NOTE:
You can also leave out the apricot layer and add cinnamon sugar to the cream cheese layer and cinnamon sugar to the topping. Very good and how the recipe was originally given to me by a friend.
