I have been making this so long and it's one of the first recipes my Godmother ever shared with me. She is probably one of the other great cooks I know. She made this all the time and one day she shared it with me when I was I was about 13. I make it for my family now, it's one of my best friend's favorite foods too. It's so easy to make and is jam packed with flavor. My Godmother didn't put cream cheese with her original recipe but I added to it. I think it's an awesome addition, however I always make both by cutting the cream cheese amount in half and adding into the pan after I added the first half into the first crescent sheet dough. Note: I now buy the crescent dough in sheet form from Pilsbury, this makes covering the dough so much easier than the perforated crescent dough.
