Cinnamon Crescent Roll Cheesecake – Easy & Delicious Sopapilla Cheesecake


Yesterday I shared this recipe in my Instagram Stories and it was very well received. 😋

In order to make this recipe easier to find, I decided to post it here on the blog for your reference.

My mom made this cheesecake when I was growing up and it was always a hit.  Not only is it insanely delicious but it’s crazy easy to make.

I’ve always known this dessert as cinnamon crescent roll cheesecake, but I received a ton of messages saying that y’all know this delectable dessert as sopapilla cheesecake.  Regardless of what you call it, I can assure you that you will love it. 

Next grocery trip, do yourself a favor and pick up these ingredients.  You won’t be sorry!


This Fall, I saw a similar recipe on TikTok where they added apple pie filling and HAD to try it.

Here’s how it turned out!


The only difference from the original recipe was the can of apple pie filling added on top of the cream cheese filling but under the crescent roll topping.  This is now Matt’s favorite dessert that I make.

I also tested this with blueberry pie filling, but the general consensus was that the apple pie cheesecake was the best.

    It’s called Goose Feathers here in Indy. Not sure where that comes from?!? I make it for Christmas morning, Easter… special occasions. And always say “When I get to Heaven, I’m going to eat nothing but Goose Feathers!” 😂

    I went to Publix and bought the biscuits, but I forgot the cream cheese. I guess I will be heading back to Publix for the cheese. Thank you for the recipe, I will be trying it this weekend.

      I’m not really sure. Maybe go a few minutes less and just watch it.

    Love this recipe! Looks delicious. One question about the cream cheese. Large packages or small?
