Easy Cream Cheese Cherry Crescent Bake

1 tube crescent rolls

1 block of cream cheese

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 large can cherry pie filling

3 tablespoons butter, melted

1/4 cup sugar in the raw

Unroll and lightly press four of the crescent rolls into the bottom of an 8x8 inch greased pan. The bottom of the pan should be lined with crescent roll dough.

With a mixer, beat together sugar, cream cheese and vanilla until smooth and creamy. Spread it on top of the crescent rolls in the pan. Pour and spread the pie filling on top of the cream cheese layer.

Spread the last four crescent roll pieces on top of the cherry filling. Stretch it out and seal the seams to make a nice top crust. Pour the melted butter on top of the crust and sprinkle the raw sugar on top of the butter.

Bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees.
