Recipe: Sopapilla Cheesecake

Thanks to Pinterest - my recipe box is FULL! A couple weeks ago I found this Sopapilla Cheesecake and decided it was going in the box to try. 

It's not too often that I spontaneously have all the ingredients for something on hand - but yeah! Crescent rolls, cream cheese, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla - how many of you have all of those ingredients in your cupboards right now?

First you mix up softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla - I also threw some cinnamon in this portion as well. My cream cheese wasn't softened and I put it on "defrost" in the microwave and it softened perfectly without melting.

You put half the crescent rolls on the bottom - spread the cream cheese mix on top - then the other layer of crescent rolls. I was winging it a bit since I was in a hurry and making half the recipe.  I made this in a square dish but the original recipe is meant for 9x13.

Top with melted butter, cinnamon & sugar - then pop it in the oven! 

Here's a shot out of the oven...it puffed up nicely.

And here's a slice of the yumminess! We both liked it a lot and it's a quick and easy breakfast/dessert to make that has pretty simple ingredients.

In my "winging" it - I didn't use enough sugar. I should have taken the extra time to make sure I used the right amounts. It is sort of a recipe you can't screw up though - or if you like things a little less sweet - use less sugar. It was still really good - just would have been better with more sugar in the cream cheese. I also would mix the cinnamon and sugar for the top and go heavier with the sugar there as well.

Hope you like it!
