1. Spray 9x13" pan with non-stick cooking spray. Use one can of crescent rolls to line the bottom of the pan; stretch the dough and pinch the holes closed to form a crust.
2. Blend together the softened cream cheese, one cup of sugar and one teaspoon of vanilla. Spread mixture evenly over the dough, but not too close to edges. Stretch second can of crescent rolls over the cream cheese mixture to form top crust.
3. Melt butter and blend in one cup of sugar and one teaspoon vanilla; pour evenly over the crust.
4. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon, then bake at 360 for 30 minutes until bubbly and crust is slightly browned.
5. Let cool and refrigerate before cutting into squares.
New York Cheesecake
The following recipe uses fresh strawberries but frozen strawberries work well. We made this cheesecake with graham cracker crumbs; a nut crumb crust and a crust made from crushed vanilla wafers would pair well also. And of course, you can use raspberries, blueberries, peaches, mangoes, or other fruit for the topping. You will need a nine- or ten-inch springform pan for this recipe. The cheesecake pictured was baked and served in a nine-inch glass-base springform pan.
Crush the graham crackers. Mix the crumbs with the cinnamon, sugar, and melted butter in a nine or ten-inch springform pan. Press the mixture into a crust across the bottom of the pan and up the sides. Put the crust in the refrigerator to set up while you prepare the filling and the topping.Make the topping. Puree the strawberries in a blender with the lemon juice. You should have about 1 1/2 cups of purée. If you would like to remove the seeds, run the puree through a sieve. Place the puree in a small saucepan. Add the sugar, food coloring, and cornstarch. Cook over medium heart, stirring often, until thickened and bubbly. Set aside to cool.Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Make the filling by mixing the cream cheese with the paddle attachment of your stand-type mixer set at medium speed until smooth and creamy, about five minutes. Add the eggs, granulated sugar, flour, salt, vanilla, and whipping cream, and gently cream together until smooth. Do not over beat. Too much air in the filling will cause the cake to sink and crack. Pour one half of the cream cheese filling into the crust. Spoon about 2/3's of the strawberry sauce onto the filling then spoon the remaining cream cheese mixture over the strawberry sauce. Refrigerate the remaining sauce. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until the top just starts to turn golden and the center of the cake is just barely jiggly.Let the cake cool in the pan on a wire rack for ten minutes. Run a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen. Remove the ring and let the cheesecake cool completely. Refrigerate for several hours. To serve, stir the berries into the remaining sauce and spoon over the cheesecake.
