    cherry pie filling
  • 1
    egg, separated

How to Make Cherry Cheesecake Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. Beat together cream cheese, egg yolk, sugar and almond extract until smooth.
  2. Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray and unroll 1 sheet of crescent dough. If you don't have the sheets, and are using regular crescent rolls, pinch together the perforations.
  3. Pour cream cheese mixture over the dough, and then spread the cherry pie filling over that. Top with second crescent dough sheet.
  4. Brush the top with the reserved egg white, and sprinkle with sugar. I used a specialty almond/amaretto flavored sugar, but regular white or sparkling sugar would be nice as well.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until nicely browned. Cool on rack and then refrigerate.
  6. The filling will be quite runny while warm, but sets up nicely after refrigeration.
