Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

I made this for our YW Cinco De Mayo party on Tuesday night. It was kind of an experiment, but everyone was very pleased with the result! I will be making this one again. I know I say that a lot of the recipes I post are easy {I swear they are}, but this one is probably one of the easiest. Its a great one to take to a potluck function or serve as dessert. You could also try vanilla or cinnamon ice cream with it, but I think its great by its self. You could also easily half this recipe if you want to try it out and aren't going to a function. You may eat the whole thing by yourself so I'd probably suggest the halving method. ;)

Sorry the pics aren't great... I was in a hurry!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

2 [8oz.] packages Cream Cheese, softened
1 Cup White Sugar
1 tsp. Mexican Vanilla
2 [8oz.] Packages Refrigerated Crescent Rolls
3/4 Cup White Sugar
1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Cup Butter, @ room temperature
1/4 Cup Honey

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray.

2. Beat the cream cheese with 1 cup of sugar and the vanilla until smooth.

3. Unroll the first can of crescent dough and lay it flat in prepared dish. Pinch all the seems together to make one big rectangle. Evenly spread the cream cheese mixture over the dough, then cover with the 2nd package of crescent rolls, pinching the seems together to make another large rectangle.

4. Mix together 3/4 cup sugar, cinnamon and butter with a pastry blender. Dot the mixture over the top of the cheesecake.

5. Bake until crescent dough has puffed ad turned golden brown, about 30-40 minutes. Removefrom oven and drizzle with 1/4 cup honey. Cool completely in pan before cutting up andserving. Will make 12 LARGE square or anywhere from 16-20 smaller squares.

**Note: there was one piece left the morning after I made it and when I got up I saw that the pan was in the sink. I texted Greg and told him he stole my pie and he said he had to take it because it was calling to him. I think that says something about this treat coming for a guy who tries to avoid eating desserts! :)


  1. This looks so delicious!! I want to try this one pronto! I love your story of Greg eating the last piece!

  2. My roommate makes these all the time! I love them and they are so easy to make. yummy!

  3. This looks yummy! It reminds scones with cinnamon, butter & honey. I'm looking forward to trying these out!

  4. I would prefer that you come and make this for me!
