1/2 c sugar (or sweetener of choice)
2 pkgs 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
5 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 c butter, melted
Extra sugar for top

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 C). Lightly coat 9″ X 13″ baking dish with non-stick spray. Unroll one package of crescent rolls and press them flat into bottom of dish. Mix softened cream cheese, lemon juice, and 1/2 cup sugar together until smooth; spread mixture evenly across pastry. Unroll remaining crescent rolls and press out slightly so they are smooth and not curled on sides; lay entire piece over top of cream cheese mixture, then drizzle with melted butter. Sprinkle the top with white sugar. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned on top; cut into squares & enjoy!
