When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 350°F and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes. Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with the softened butter.

Grill: 350 ˚F


  • 1/2 Tablespoon unsalted butter, softened

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, and the vanilla. Mix on high speed until smooth, 60-90 seconds.


  • 6 Ounce cream cheese, room temperature

  • 1/4 Cup granulated sugar, divided

  • 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract

Unroll one can of crescent roll dough into the prepared baking dish, making sure to press together any gaps between the seams. Pour the cream cheese filling over the crescent rolls and spread in an even layer. Unroll the second sheet of crescent roll dough over the filling, pressing together any gaps in the seams. Pour the melted butter evenly over the top, then sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar and a light dusting of cinnamon.
