Sopapilla Cheesecake

Ooooh this dessert is so darn delicious! It takes like 2 seconds to make, but it tastes like real bakery-style cheesecake. AKA this is the perfect dessert! In case you’re wondering, a sopapilla is a fried pastry or quick bread, but in this case, it’s crescent rolls. ūüôā

Sopapilla Cheesecake
From My Yellow Umbrella (found on Pinterest)


1 can crescent rolls
1 (8oz) package cream cheese (softened)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 cup butter (melted)
Cinnamon & sugar


  1. Unroll and spread 1/2 the¬†can of crescent rolls on bottom of an ungreased pan (I used 8×8).
  2. Combine softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla.
  3. Spread mixture over crescent rolls.
  4. Spread remaining crescent rolls over mixture.
  5. Brush melted butter over the top and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.

You could easily mix in chocolate chips or serve with berries. Any way you eat this, it’s delicious!
