Pumpkin Cheesecake Squares

It's pumpkin season y'all, like you haven't read that 10 times already on this blog. I'm not going to apologize. I'm just a huge pumpkin fan. I made these Pumpkin Cheesecake Squares using this recipe HERE. Pixie helped me. It was a test. I'm so please with the way these turned out. The only thing is I used those crescent rolls that that says 65% bigger. Don't do that. They (in my opinion) are too big!

GPAC Pumpkin Cheesecake Squares

2 packages/tubes of refrigerated crescent rolls- you know, the scary tubes that POP when you open them?
4- 8 ounce packages of softened Philadelphia cream cheese, we don't do the low or not fat
1/2- 3/4 cups of sugar- we don't like it too sweet
4 eggs, reserve one of the egg whites for an egg wash
1/2-3/4 can pumpkin puree
3 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie spice
Cinnamon Sugar to sprinkle on top.
You'll also need a 
9x13 pan
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
Place a rimmed baking sheet with water on the bottom rack of your oven. Place the other rack in the middle.
Take one tube of crescent roll, unroll the dough and put it on the bottom of  the pan. Press on the seams if it is precut into triangles, to seal the dough.
Beat the cream cheese, sugar, eggs, pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin puree, and vanilla until smooth.
Pour it on top of the crescent roll dough.
Top with the remaining crescent roll dough, if it has seams put it on a cutting board and press the seams to seal first.
Beat the remaining egg white with a tablespoon of water, brush the top of the crescent roll dough with this. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake this on the middle rack of your oven until set, 50 minutes to 1 hour 10 minutes. Just keep an eye on it. If the top is browning too fast set a piece of aluminum foil on top. Don't crimp the edges with the foil, just lay the sheet on top.
Let cool completely.
Cut in the squares.
