Easy Apple Sopapilla Cheesecake (Cinnamon Sugar)

Easy Apple Sopapilla Cheesecake

If you have never made Easy Sopapilla Cheesecake, you are really missing out! It is a delicious combination of crescents, a cream cheese filling and a buttery cinnamon sugar topping. I wanted to make these just a little different, so I decided to add some apple pie filling, and Easy APPLE Sopapilla Cheesecake was born! This would be a great easy dessert for anything from a holiday gathering to just a quick dessert to enjoy at home.

Here are some tips for making my Easy Apple Sopapilla Cheesecake:

  • If you can find the sheets of crescent dough rather than the precut crescents rolls, use those. I sometimes have trouble finding the uncut sheets of dough, but they are so great for recipes like this one.
  • This dessert could also be enjoyed warm. I love a nice cold cheesecake, but you could also enjoy this warm and it would be more like a warm danish. Whichever way you enjoy it is fine!
  • The apple pie filling in this recipe can be swapped out for any fruit pie filling that you like without problem. Peach, cherry, blueberry or many other fillings could be delicious!

These are the ingredients that you will need for this cinnamon sugar dessert:

  • Crescent rolls
  • Cream cheese
  • Granulated sugar
  • Vanilla extract
  • Butter
  • Cinnamon
  • Apple pie filling
