Easy Cherry Danish

I love danishes...cheese and cherry to be specific. A former co-worker shared this with me several years ago and I thought it was so good and so easy!

 Cherry Danish

2 cans (8 oz. each) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls, divided
2 pkg.  (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar, divided
1   egg white
1 tsp. vanilla
1 can  (20 oz.) cherry pie filling
3 Tbsp. milk

Heat oven to 350°F. Unroll 1 can crescent dough into 2 rectangles; press onto bottom of 13x9-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray, firmly pressing perforations and seams together to seal.
Beat cream cheese, 3/4 cup sugar, egg white and vanilla with mixer until well blended; spread onto crust. Cover with pie filling. Unroll remaining can of crescent dough; separate into 2 rectangles. Pat out to form 13x9-inch rectangle, pressing seams and perforations together to seal; place over pie filling.
Bake 25 to 30 min. or until golden brown; cool slightly. Gradually add milk to remaining sugar, beating with whisk until well blended; drizzle over dessert.
