Apple and Cream Cheese Dessert

This is an easy and quick dessert.  It's also quite versatile as you can replace the apples with cherries, strawberries, pears, or any other fruit you like.  Also, instead of the pie filling, you can use preserves or fresh fruit. If using fresh fruit, make sure to cook it before and mixing it with some sugar and spices such as vanilla or cinnamon.  However you want to make it, it's delicious!  And easy!  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-4 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
-1/2 cup sugar
-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
-1 package (8 rolls) of crescent rolls
-1 (21 oz) can apple pie filling
-2 tsp cinnamon
-butter flavored cooking spray
For cinnamon sugar topping:
-1/8 cup sugar
-1 tsp cinnamon
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F.  Coat an 8x8 baking dish with butter flavored cooking spray.  Set aside.
Mix together the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla.  Mix until well combined.
Divide the dough into half (you'll have 4 rolls into each batch).  Unroll one half of the dough and pinch the seams together so that instead of 4 separate crescents you'll have one piece of dough.  Place that on the bottom of the prepared pan.  Top with the cream cheese mixture.  Top that with the apple pie filling.  Sprinkle the 2 tsp cinnamon on top.  Place the other half of dough on top.  Coat that dough with some butter flavored cooking spray.
Mix the cinnamon sugar topping ingredients and sprinkle all of it on top the second dough.  
Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.  Let it rest for 5 minutes.  Serve hot by itself or with a scoop of ice cream on top.  Enjoy!
