Here’s a detailed, unique long recipe in English.



For the Crust:

2 cans (8 oz each) refrigerated crescent roll dough

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Cream Cheese Filling:

2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened


1 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon lemon zest

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

For the Topping:

1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted


1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon cinnamon (optional)

Powdered sugar for dusting (optional)


Step 1: Prepare the Crust

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish or line it with parchment paper

for easier removal.


Unroll one can of crescent roll dough and lay it at the bottom of the prepared baking dish, pressing

the seams together to create a uniform layer.

Step 2: Make the Cream Cheese Filling

In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth.

Add the granulated sugar and continue to beat until well combined and creamy.

Mix in the vanilla extract, lemon zest, and fresh lemon juice until fully incorporated.

Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the layer of crescent roll dough in the baking dish.

Step 3: Top with Second Layer of Dough

Unroll the second can of crescent roll dough and lay it gently over the cream cheese layer, pressing

the seams together.

Step 4: Add the Topping

Pour the melted butter evenly over the top layer of crescent roll dough.


In a small bowl, combine the granulated sugar and cinnamon (if using). Sprinkle this mixture evenly

over the melted butter.

Step 5: Bake the Bars

Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and slightly crispy.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely in the baking dish.

Step 6: Serve

Once cooled, cut into bars.

If desired, dust with powdered sugar before serving.

Tips for Perfect Lemon Cream Cheese Bars

Use Fresh Lemons: Fresh lemon juice and zest will provide the best flavor.

Room Temperature Ingredients: Ensure the cream cheese is softened to room temperature for a

smoother filling.

Even Layers: Make sure to press the crescent roll dough evenly to avoid any gaps.



These Lemon Cream Cheese Bars are a delightful treat that combines the tartness of lemon with the

richness of cream cheese, all encased in a buttery, flaky crust. Perfect for gatherings or a sweet treat at
