Sopapilla Cheesecake

I am an expert eater. I really am. Unfortunately too, I am starting to look like it. Operation weight loss is going slowly at this point...

But I have to share one of my favorite desserts today. It combines everything I am at an expert of: eating, dessert, and Mexican food.

In case those of you don't know, a sopapilla, is a fried pastry of yummy-ness. You can do many things with a sopapilla non-dessert related, but for dessert you either eat it with honey or covered in cinnamon-sugar.


2 cans of crescent rolls
2 (8 oz) packages of cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1/2 cup of butter, melted
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 table spoon of ground cinnamon
Honey to drizzle


Unroll one can of crescent rolls and place at the bottom of an 8x8 baking dish. Cover the dish pressing together all the perforations.

Beat together the cream cheese and 1 cup of the sugar. Then beat in the vanilla. Spread over the dough in the dish.

Unroll the last can of crescent rolls and place over the cream cheese mixture carefully pressing the perforations together.

Pour melted butter over the dough and mix together the remaining sugar and cinnamon and pour evenly over the melted butter.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until the center is set at 350 degrees.

When out, let cool for 20 minutes after drizzling honey over the top. Then dig in an enjoy! I love eating it warm. Store in the fridge (since it has the cheesecake and all) but then you can remove from the fridge and place a square in the microwave to zap 10 seconds and enjoy!

What is a dessert that makes you lose all your will power?


  1. it looks delicious, I need to try it.

  2. I typically don't care for cheesecake, but this looks like one I might like because it's not a huuuge chunk of the cheesecake part :)

  3. Ahhhh I used to love sopapilla. And for future reference, my computer keeps autocorrecting to so papilla.... not sure what that means...


Comments make my day!
Thanks for the love <3
