Sopapilla Cheesecake Recipe

Updated on May 12, 2013

I was first introduced to Sopapilla Cheesecake a couple of years ago at an office function. The crunchy sugar and cinnamon topping over a rich and creamy cream cheese filling was absolutely heavenly.

Anyone who brings homemade goodies to work knows they simply must share the recipe with the rest of us. So, I've had this recipe for a year now and have never gotten around to making it myself until tonight.

If you want to make your house smell warm and inviting, just mix this up and pop it into the oven. My house smelled so sweet and cinnamony while it was cooking. My family couldn't even wait to let it completely cool before they were ready to devour it.

Some people like Sopapilla Cheesecake cold and some like it hot. It's one of those desserts that is really good either way. I have to admit, i believe I like it hot better than I do cold.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Recipe

  • 2 cans crescent rolls
  • 2 – 8 oz pkgs. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar mixed w/ 1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Do not grease pan. If you do it will make it difficult to spread the crescent rolls out. Unroll 1 can crescent rolls onto the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan and pinch the perforated seams back together. The one can should cover the entire bottom of the pan. Don't over work the dough like I did. Gently pinch only what you have to together. I mashed and pushed and overdid it. It made the bottom crust dry and hard instead of light and fluffy.

Mix together cream cheese, 1 cup sugar and vanilla. Spread evenly on top of crescent roll dough. Unroll second can of crescent rolls on top of the cream cheese mixture and pinch seams together. This can is more difficult to work with because you're trying to spread it over the cream cheese layer instead of a hard surface.  Don' be overly concerned with how it looks. I promise everyone will still eat it and it'll still taste just as good.  Pour a melted stick of butter on top. Sprinkle with cinnamon and 1/2 cup sugar mixture and bake for 30 minutes.

Cut into squares. It can be served warm or cold.

      It might be a tad on the bland side without the cinnamon, but I bet enough butter and sugar can fix that, Ben...LOL

      MMMMmm, this sounds good, I'm bookmarking it KCC. I wonder if it would be any good without the cinnamon, sometimes that spice can be too much for me, other times I crave it. Crazy cinnamon.

      It was a hit at our family Christmas party. My wife loved it but, she did seem pretty hesitant when looking at it. She soon had a few more. I thought it was really easy to make and tasted great. Thanks for the recipe.

      Akirchner it's soooo good. No time to worry about the calories this time of year.

      I love Sopapillas, rmcrayne. You'll like this. Try it. It's super easy. That is a picture of the one I made last night. It's half gone now.

      I can almost smell it from way over here in Prinetucky...sounds great but then anything with cream cheese seems to be my downfall...I always think it looks about the same way going in as it does when it clomps onto your thighs too! Oy vey - bad time of year to worry about it I suppose. Great recipe though - will have to add it to my trunk! Audrey
