Top with your other can of crescent rolls pinching the seams of the rolls together
Brush the top of your crescent rolls with egg whites and sprinkle with sugar
Bake for 18 minutes, turning halfway through baking if your oven does not cook evenly
Serve warm and refrigerate leftovers
You want to keep your crescent rolls in the fridge until you are ready to use them. They are easier to roll out when they are cold.
I find it easier to pinch the crescent rolls together once in the pan for the bottom roll. However, for the top layer, I like to take the two crescent rolls that roll out together and pinch them together before placing them on top of the cream cheese filling.
Don’t use too much of your egg whites. Just lightly brush them on the top.
