Sopapilla Cheesecake Rolls

Hey everyone!! Serene from House of Yumm is back with you! Today I’m here sharing another quick and easy dessert recipe with you! One of my favorite desserts is sopapilla cheesecake bars.

Made with crescent rolls cheesecake and cinnamon and sugar. They’re based on the Mexican dessert of sopapillas which are basically fried pastry.

I always get those when we go out to eat at our favorite Mexican food restaurants. Anyway! This little dessert is based on all of that! But in a fun, portable, easy-to-make version!

Ingredients

  • 1 package crescent rolls
  • 6 ounces cream cheese
  • 2/3 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Topping:
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • honey

STEP 1: These start with premade crescent roll dough. Which definitely saves a lot of time in the kitchen. And makes us all one step closer to enjoying these little sopapilla cheesecake rolls.

STEP 2: Cheesecake Filling: The cheesecake filling is super simple to put together. It’s possibly the easiest cheesecake I have ever made.

Just mix up some cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract and spoon the cheesecake filling onto the triangle on the widest part. Roll the crescent rolls as normal, slightly pinch the ends closed to prevent the filling from leaking. It’s perfect for baking within these rolls.

You could use any flavoring instead of vanilla if you wanted to make these lemon or strawberry, or even add a little chocolate. The possibilities are endless!!

Step 3: Brush the top with butter and bake at 375 degrees for 12-14 minutes.

And just look how perfect they end up!! These sopapilla cheesecakes are best when served warm and with a drizzle of honey. In my experience, they never last long enough around the house to be cold though.
