{Recipe: Sopapilla Cheesecake}

Monday, January 4, 2010

As promised, here is the easiest dessert that is completely foolproof and I assure you everyone will love... perfect because it's not so chocolately-rich you can't eat it, but horribly bad because 1 piece is just never enough =)

• 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened -- use LIGHT to save calories!!
• 1 cup white sugar
• 1 teaspoon Mexican vanilla extract -- I couldn't find this, so just use regular vanilla
• 2 (8 ounce) cans refrigerated crescent rolls
• 3/4 cup white sugar
• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
• 1/4 cup honey

1. Preheat oven to 350. Prepare a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
2. Beat cream cheese with 1 cup of sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth.

3. Unroll crescent roll dough, and use a rolling pin to shape each piece into 9x13 inch rectangles. Press one piece into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Spread cream cheese mixture into baking dish, then cover with the remaining piece of crescent dough. Stir together 3/4 cup of sugar, cinnamon, and butter. Dot the mixture over the top of the cheesecake.

4. Bake until the crescent dough has puffed and turned golden brown, about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and drizzle with honey. Cool completely in the pan before serving {and paired with ice cream, it's IRRESISTIBLE!}
