4 ounces (half a package) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup pecans
Two cans refrigerated crescent roll dough
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 to 4 tablespoons milk or cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Place cream cheese, brown sugar, cinnamon, and raisins in a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Process until combined. And pecans and pulse until pecans are chopped. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a pizza pan with butter-flavored cooking spray.
Unroll crescent roll dough and separate into triangles. Position triangles next to each other with the points toward the center, overlapping the long sides about 1/4 inch, forming a large round. Where the pieces overlap, press the seams together only in the center of the seam, leaving either ends of the seams unsealed so you can fold them up over the filling.
Spread the filling around in a ring covering the center sealed seam of each triangle.
Place a small plastic baby (optional but traditional) somewhere in the filling. The person who gets this piece will have good luck for the year!
