Sunday morning Cheesecake

We are part of a new church plant.   It is exciting.   It is scary.  It is a lot of work.  We have always attended a very traditional church in our small town.   Sadly, due to lack of attendance and money, that church closed this past spring.   Our new church is very slowly getting going and we do church different!   We don't have a building to meet in so we currently meet in a local pub  (it is closed when we meet on Sunday mornings).  We have evening Bible Study once a week at a newly opened coffee shop named Gathering Grounds (seems appropriate, doesn't it?).  We have been doing various community things too.   Some of the things we have done is to pick up garbage in our new town and in the little town we used to meet at.  We have participated in a local BBQ Ribfest (contest) and donated the proceeds to a local fellow fighting cancer.   Currently, we are working on hosting a community Thanksgiving meal.  We are planning to feed about 300 people a complimentary, traditional Thanksgiving meal.  It is fun to be part of these adventures.

We have a little something for folks to eat and drink before we start our morning worship service.   This week was our family's turn to host.   I received a number of compliments for this so thought I would share it with you.

Brunch Cheesecake
(originally printed in "Cooking for your Style of Living" by Herberger's)

2 tubes crescent rolls
2 large cream cheese pkgs., softened
1 egg
3/4 cup sugar

Put one tube of crescent rolls on bottom of 9"X13" pan.  Mix cheese, egg and sugar together well.  Spread in pan.  Top with other tube of rolls.  Top with cinnamon and sugar.  Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

I think it is best served warm, but it isn't bad when chilled either!


  1. I think I'd like that Cheesecake. I'm all about easy, and it sounds easy to make.

  2. This is delish. Thanks for sharing

    1. You are welcome. Thanks for giving me a reason to post something here!

  3. Well, good for you and your fellow church peeps! A fledgling church but already giving back to the community. Way to go! Food looks good enough to eat.
