Sopapilla Cheesecake is a deliciously easy dessert recipe with a flaky cinnamon-sugar pastry and a sweet layer of cheesecake in the middle! All I can say about this dessert is “Oh my goodness” where has this recipe been hiding and how come I haven’t seen it until now. It was a huge hit and there were no leftovers. It turned out so crispy and golden brown.
2 (8oz.) packs of Pillsbury crescent rolls
2 (8oz.) packs of cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup butter (melted)
1 tablespoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons sugar honey
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray. Press a can of the crescent rolls to the bottom of the dish, making sure to reach edges and keep them together.
Bake the first layer of crescent roll dough till just done maybe 5-8 minutes. (Optional, that way I make sure it is done.
I don’t like raw dough) Combine softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla. Spread mixture over crescent rolls.
Roll the remaining crescent roll over the top and stretch to the edges and seal.
Brush across the entire top of the crescent roll with the melted butter. Sprinkle the top with 1 tablespoon cinnamon and 4 tablespoons of sugar Bake for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
Eat warm (it will be a hot mess!) or let cool and chill for several hours before serving.
Slice into triangles or squares, drizzle with a little honey if you like, and serve.
