Guest Post//Creative Index

Morning loves!
Things will be a little different this week here at "Habibi".  I'm headed to Nashville sans Alaa for roughly a week. We're usually not separated for that long and I'm already starting to get separation anxiety!  So while I'm away I've got some super fabulous bloggers here to fill in for me while I'm out of town for a few days.  I am so excited to re-introduce to you todays guest blogger, Jessica from Creative Index.  Remember?  Jessica is the artist behind my new blog layout.  I'm thrilled to have her pop in for a bit today.  But I must warn you, your New Years Resolution is about to get a little off track.
Hello everyone, it's Jessica from Creative Index. I am SO happy that Nuha invited me over here today! I just adore her... I never thought that blogging would introduce me to so many sweet people, but I am so glad that it did! I'm honored to call her a dear friend. :)

Today I am going to share a super yummy (and easy!) recipe that has quickly become a family favorite. This dessert is easy to make, smells great while cooking and tastes so good! Mmmmmm... I could go for a piece right now!


Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 (8 ounce) cans refrigerated crescent rolls

For Topping:
3/4 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
honey (optional)
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Beat the cream cheese with 1 cup of sugar and the vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth.

Unroll 1 can of crescent roll dough and press into the bottom of baking dish. Evenly spread the cream cheese on top of the dough. Unroll and cover with the remaining crescent dough. Stir together 3/4 cup of sugar, cinnamon, and butter. Spread the mixture over the top of the cheesecake.

Bake in the preheated oven until the crescent dough has puffed and turned golden brown, about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and drizzle with honey. Cool completely and refrigerate until ready to serve.


So delicious! Hope you all enjoyed this little recipe and thank you Nuha for having me over today! Feel free to stop by my blog and say hello! I LOVE meeting new friends. :)
