Cheesecake Bars

How can we live in Minnesota without some bar recipes?

2 (8 oz.) cream cheese bricks
1 egg, separated
2 tubes crescent rolls from the refridgerator section
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon and sugar mixture
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 11x7 inch pan. Spread one package of crescent rolls on bottom of pan, unrolling the roll and laying it flat into the pan creating an even layer.

Mix egg yolk, cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice together a bowl with an electric mixer. Spread this mixture over the crescent rolls.

Place another layer of crescent rolls over the cream cheese mixture.

Wisk the egg white and brush it over crescent rolls. Then sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar on top.

Bake for 20-30 minutes or until top is golden brown.

Chocolate chips or berries can be added to the cream cheese mixture for a modification.
