Sausage & Cheese Crescent Squares

Sausage & Cheese Crescent Squares
2 Cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls 
1 Lb Spicy Sausage
1 Package (8 oz) Cream Cheese
2 C Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Heat the oven to 375°F. Unroll 1 can of dough into 2 long rectangles. Place in ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish; press over bottom and 1/2 inch up sides to form crust.  Cook sausage over medium heat and discard drippings once it is cooked. Add the cream cheese and cook over low heat until melted. Spoon mixture evenly over crust in baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese. Unroll second can of dough on work surface. Press to form 13x9-inch rectangle; firmly press perforations to seal. Carefully place over cheese. Bake 21 to 26 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 15 minutes. Cut into small squares and serve.

Okay. Where do I start? I was so excited about this recipe as it was the first one I have tried from Pinterest. I decided to use spicy sausage for a little kick and because I already had it in my freezer. I began to run behind schedule because I was watching crazy cat videos on You Tube - no lie. Because of the time constraint or because I have issues, it appeared that I did not have enough dough in the second can to roll out the top layer. Regardless, I thought the recipe was yummy and I would use regular cream cheese and dough sheets (or purchase another can of crescents). A friend of mine also made this and threw in some veggies to add a healthier aspect to it. My picture displays how it lacks in presentation, but I promise if you have enough time and concentrate on the recipe that it will look like it does on Pinterest.
