I absolutely love the sopapillas. Sopapillas are basically light and fluffy fried dough that’s been rolled in cinnamon sugar. They are amazingly delicious when drizzled with honey! Around here we jokingly call them sofa pillows. My Grandma actually made these when she visited us years ago and I’ve been making them her way ever since!
Easy Sopapilla Cheesecake is made with crescent roll dough, cream cheese, sugar, cinnamon and melted butter. A deliciously easy dessert!
I love those recipes that we all grew up with, they are just too good to miss out on.
Simple and easy ! My whole family loves this recipe so much. If it were for them, I’d be making this every day! Give it a shot, you’ll love it!To Make this Recipe You’ Will Need the following ingredients:
2 (8oz.) packs of Pillsbury crescent rolls
2 (8oz.) packs of cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ cup butter (melted)
1 tablespoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons sugar
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.
I prefer the chilled version so I store mine in the fridge,
Slice into bars and serve.
