Easy Sopapilla Cheesecake Bars – Cinnamon Sugar Dessert

Sopapilla Cheesecake Bars

Cheesecake, cinnamon and sugar – these are three of my favorite things, and when you combine them magical things can happen! These Easy Sopapilla Cheesecake Bars require just a few simple ingredients and they come together so effortlessly that you just may find yourself making them way too often. A basic cheesecake filling is spread between flaky crescent dough and it is all topped with a buttery cinnamon sugar topping. You can even get crazy and top these bars with any of your favorite fruits, syrups or sauces. Save this recipe as it is a great one to make for parties and pot lucks!

Tips for making this recipe:

  • If you can find the sheets of crescent dough rather than the cans of precut dough, definitely use that! I have a hard time finding the uncut dough, but I always grab some when I see it.
  • It doesn’t need to be perfect. I have nearly gone crazy before trying to get my crescent dough perfect in the bottom of the dish and also on top of the cream cheese. This ins’t necessary though. When the dough bakes up, it all comes together just fine.
  • These bars can be enjoyed warm without an issue. In my opinion, though, they are much better when served cold.
  • If you are serving these bars to a group of people, have a copy of the recipe ready to go. Everyone is going to ask for it!
