Préparations :

1. **Prepare the Cheesecake Filling:**
– In a mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth.
– Add the granulated sugar and vanilla extract, and continue to beat until well combined. Set aside.

2. **Prepare the Dough:**
– Open the can of crescent roll dough and unroll it on a clean surface.
– Pinch the perforations to seal the dough into one large rectangle.
– Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over half of the dough.

3. **Cut and Shape:**
– Cut the filled dough into squares or rectangles, about 2 inches in size.
– Shape each piece into a round or desired shape.

4. **Fry the Bites:**
– In a large, deep skillet or Dutch oven, heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F (175°C).
– Carefully place the dough bites into the hot oil, a few at a time, ensuring not to overcrowd the skillet.
– Fry until golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes per side.
– Use a slotted spoon to remove the bites from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

5. **Coat the Bites:**
– In a small bowl, combine the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon.
– While the bites are still warm, roll them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture until well coated.
