From My Kitchen To Yours!

In an earlier post, I shared a picture with you of our dessert on Easter Sunday...

Yeah, this one.... a little slice of heaven! 

Anyways, I thought I would share the love and pass on this scrumptious recipe.

Sopapilla Cheesecake


  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Mexican vanilla extract
  • 2 (8 ounce) cans refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup honey 


  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Beat the cream cheese with 1 cup of sugar and the vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth.
  3. Unroll the cans of crescent roll dough, and use a rolling pin to shape each piece into 9x13 inch rectangles. Press one piece into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Evenly spread the cream cheese mixture into the baking dish, then cover with the remaining piece of crescent dough. Stir together 3/4 cup of sugar, cinnamon, and butter. Dot the mixture over the top of the cheesecake.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the crescent dough has puffed and turned golden brown, about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and drizzle with honey. Cool completely in the pan before cutting into 12 squares. 
Let me just add that I generally do NOT like honey... but it really complimented the cheesecake well.
A definite must try!!

This was my first time making it so I wasn't sure what to expect. But it is delicious! It's like cheesecake wrapped up in a buttery,cinnamon, sugary crust.
