Sopapilla Cheesecake

One of my co-workers from my last job made this on one of our company parties and it was so yummy I just had to share!

These sweeties puff like sopapillas and are great for breakfast or as a change from coffeecake! Cinnamon sugar can be made by combining 1 cup sugar to 2 TBS cinnamon.

List of Ingredients

2 (8 ounces) packages cream cheese
2 packages refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or almond extract
1/2 cup margarine or butter, melted
1/2 cup cinnamon sugar


1. Using a 9 x 13 baking pan, unroll one package of refrigerated crescent rolls and line the bottom of the pan.

2. Flatten.

3. Mix together the cream cheese, sugar and extract.

4. Spread over the crescent rolls.

5. Unroll the other can of crescent rolls and place on top of cream cheese mixture.

6. Pour one stick of melted butter or margarine over the top and sprinkle with about 1/2 cup of the cinnamon sugar mixture.

7. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
