Cheesecake Sopapilla Recipe

Yesterday I shared this recipe for cheesecake sopapilla 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 started making this cinnamon sopapilla cheesecake recipe when I first moved to LA and it immediately became one of Matt’s favorite recipes.

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!

It makes a fabulous dessert for work functions, parties, picnics, cookouts, barbecues, and more.

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 addition of the can of apple pie filling that I layered on top of the cream cheese filling. I then topped with the second can of crescent rolls, butter, cinnamon, and sugar as normal. 

This cinnamon apple pie crescent roll cheesecake 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.

Cinnamon Crescent Roll Cheesecake

  • 2 cans crescent rolls (honey butter flavor is my favorite)
  • 2 packages cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • cinnamon and sugar to sprinkle on top
  1. Unroll one can of crescent rolls and press into bottom of an ungreased 9×13 pan. Press together so there are no seams. Cream together cream cheese, cup of sugar and vanilla. Once fully mixed, spread on top of crescent rolls. Top with second can of crescent rolls, unrolled and seams pressed together. Pour melted butter on top and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake at 350º for 20-30 minutes.

Do you store this in the fridge once baked?

Yes. I store anything with cream cheese in the refrigerator to keep it from spoiling.

How do you serve this cheesecake sopapilla dessert?

We prefer to serve it warm. I just pop a slice into the microwave for about 15-30 seconds to get it just barely warm, then serve.
