My daughter, Jennifer started a whole new dessert adventure with these Sopapilla Cheesecake Bars.
They are sweet and flakey with a buttery cinnamon sugar crunch on top that melts in your mouth. Some people like them warm, but my family prefers them cold.
It takes few ingredients to make so I try to keep plenty of butter, cream cheese and crescent rolls in my fridge to easily be ready to make some when I need a quick dessert.
Sopapilla Cheesecake Bars are the perfect dessert to serve with your next Mexican theme meal.
Here are a few recipes I like to serve them with,
All of which are quick and easy recipes to make.
You are going to want to take these to the next gathering you go to. I really think they would be fabulous to take to a brunch!
I know they are a dessert, but who says you can't eat them for breakfast!
