3rd Place Again!

Yesterday my work had a chili luncheon (which I passed on by the way, and Mr. Sasha took me to Pei Wei instead- yum!) and of course we had a dessert contest.
Hoping to better my 3rd place showing from the last dessert contest, I made my Sopapilla Cheesecake and hoped for the best. I got 3rd place again, which is totally OK, and I chose Salt Grass Steakhouse for my $15 prize gift certification.
I must tell you that when Mr. Sasha and I came by to eat dessert after Pei Wei, I was accosted by no less than 8 people on my way in the door who asked me for the recipe and went on and on about how tasty it was! In fact, there was only a small portion of a corner left when we got there! And 1st place was still sitting there, with only 1 slice gone... I'm just sayin'.
So without further ado, here's the recipe:
  • 2 packages cresent rolls
  • 2 packages 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinammon
  • 1/2 stick butter melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Mix cinnamon and 1/2 cup sugar. Set aside.
Press 1 can of cresent rolls into 9X13 glass pan sprayed w/ Pam.
Mix 1 cup sugar, vanilla, and cream cheese. Spread on top of rolls. Lay the other can of rolls onto the mixture.
Pour melted butter over rolls and sprinkle w/ cinammon sugar mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Yummy...yum..yum...but why on earth does the fat girl who is trying to lose weight have to see this??!!

Melissa said...

That sounds so good! You totally should have won!

What was the winning recipe?

Dear Sasha, I might have to quit reading your blog if you don't stop posting yummy, calorie filled foods on your blog. Sweetheart blasts? Sopapilla cheescake? I'm just sayin. Love, CM

Now here's the thing- if you make a yummy treat and take it to work, you'll only get a little piece.... that's my trick. I get to make it and eat just one piece, so I'm satisfied!

As for the winning recipe, it was some kind of chocolate pecan pie thing. Didn't look too good to me! Silly judges!

YUM-O as Racheal Ray would say! Sounds amazing. I'm definitely going to have to try this, but I'm not sure if I can only eat one piece! I'll have to schedule in an extra run for this one.

Good Job, you. I'm quite proud... it looks delish!

Totally gonna try this...yum!!! Sounds like a conspiracy keeping you at 3rd. :D

That sounds delicious! I may try to make a light version of it (or maybe just save it for a weekend when we haven't just gobbled frosted brownies for the past 3 days!)

Brooke said...

I have had this before and lordamercy it is good! I would vote 1st place every time!!!

Sounds delicious! What in the world did the two people make who won first and second?

This recipe sounds divine - can't wait to try it! I think the leftovers speak louder than the awards, too.

Ooooh I'm jotting that recipe down! :-)

That looks uber-yummy. And I think I have everything for it in my kitchen.....
