Cream together cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar by cooking in microwave for 45 seconds on high, then stir until smooth. Spread evenly on crescent layer. Layer second can of crescents over cream cheese. Sprinkle sugar/cinnamon mixture evenly on this layer. Melt butter in microwave evenly for 1 minute at 50% power, then pour evenly on top. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
