Sopapilla Cheesecake


  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 large egg
  • perforated crescent rolls)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 ¼ cups granulated sugar, divided
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • (2) 8-ounce packages of cream cheese, softened
  • (2) 8-ounce tubes of refrigerated crescent roll

Equipment & Fuel


1. In a small bowl, stir together 1/4 of the sugar with the cinnamon. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl if necessary.

3. Add in the remaining 1 cup of sugar, the egg, and vanilla; beat to combine. Set aside.

4. Unroll the tubes of crescent roll dough sheets; gently press one of them into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. (If using perforated crescent roll dough, pinch the seams together to seal completely.)

5. Using a spatula, evenly spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the dough, then cover it with the other roll of crescent dough.

6. Brush the top all over with the melted butter, then sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture all over to cover.

7. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes or until the crescent dough has puffed and turned golden brown and appears set when gently shaken.

8. Remove from oven and drizzle evenly with the honey.

9. Cool for at least 1 hour in the pan. Chill overnight (which makes slicing it way easier), and then bring it to room temperature (or rewarm) before cutting it into 12 bars. Or serve individually.

10. Enjoy y’all.
