Churro Cheese Cake Bars aka Sopapilla Cheese Cake Bars

Servings – 16 Prep Time – 20 Minutes Chill Time – 28 Minutes Ingredients:

Cinnamon sugar:

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

Cheesecake bars:

  • Two 8-oz packages refrigerated crescent roll dough or sheets

  • 16 oz full fat cream cheese, softened

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly

Optional toppings:

  • Dulce de leche or salted caramel sauce

  • Chocolate sauce

  • Honey

  • Vanilla ice cream

  • Fresh strawberries


Cinnamon sugar:

Combine cinnamon and sugar. Set aside.

Cheesecake bars:

Preheat oven to 350°F with a rack in the middle of the oven. Grease a 9×13 baking pan and sprinkle 1-2 tablespoons cinnamon sugar in the bottom.

Open one tube of crescent rolls. Unroll the dough and press the seams together to form one rectangular piece. Place into the bottom of the prepared 9×13 baking pan, it should cover the whole bottom of the pan.

Combine cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla, beating until smooth and well combined. Pour the cream cheese mixture over the crust and spread into an even layer.

Using the second tube of crescent roll dough, unroll and press the seams together (just like you did with the first one) and place it over the cream cheese layer. It should cover the cream cheese completely.

Pour melted butter over the top and spread it into an even layer (I use the back of a spoon). Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar.

Bake for 26-30 minutes, until the crescent dough has puffed and is golden brown. Place on a wire rack to cool completely, then transfer to the fridge until chilled. Once chilled, cut and serve.

"You can make this with low fat cream cheese and stevia for a more healthy and less sugar version. Topped with strawberries and a tiny bit of condensed milk… Deelish"
