Layered Cinnamon Cheesecake

I can always count on my friend Stacy C. to make a dish that will most certainly top my "favorites list" and this one did not disappoint! Simple and super duper YUM! (Thanks Stacy!)

2- 8 oz packages cream cheese
2- packages refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup cinnamon sugar

Using a 9 x 13 baking pan, unroll one package of refrigerated crescent rolls and line the bottom of the pan. Flatten. Mix together the cream cheese, sugar and extract. Spread over the crescent rolls.
Unroll the other can of crescent rolls and place on top of cream cheese mixture.
Pour one stick of melted butter over the top and sprinkle with about 1/2 cup of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
