    Recipe Introduction

    The first bite of these scrumptious bars will make you think you're at home, if only in your dreams.
    Serves 8 (2 each)

    List of Ingredients

    • 1 (8-ounce) can Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls
    • 1 (8-ounce) package Philadelphia fat-free cream cheese
    • 1 egg or equivalent in egg substitute
    • 1/3 cup granular Splenda
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) chopped walnuts
    • 2 tablespoons (1/2 ounce) mini chocolate chips


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-by-9-inch cake pan with butter-flavored cooking spray. Pat half of crescent rolls into prepared cake pan. In a medium bowl, stir cream cheese with a spoon until soft. Add egg, Splenda, and vanilla extract. Mix well to combine. Stir in walnuts. Pour mixture evenly over rolls. Pat remaining rolls flat, being sure to seal perforations, and arrange over top or filling. Bake for 25 minutes. Evenly sprinkle chocolate chips over top and continue baking 5 minutes. Place cake pan on a wire rack and allow to cool completely. Cut into 16 bars.
