Sopapilla Cheesecake Rolls! This easy to make dessert recipe uses pre-made crescent roll dough! These rolls are bursting with a creamy cheesecake filling and topped with cinnamon and sugar!
Sopapilla Cheesecake Rolls! Yes please! Typically people make sopapilla cheesecake bars. Which are wonderful. Have you had them? It’s made with crescent rolls, a layer of cheesecake and tons of cinnamon and sugar. Where can you go wrong? I decided to change my version up a little bit and make it portable. I still formed the dough into crescent rolls, but hidden inside the crescent rolls is the cheesecake, like a wonderful secret treasure. Plus there’s tons of cinnamon and sugar on the outside. A little honey drizzle and it’s complete.
These start with premade crescent roll dough. Which definitely saves a lot of time in the kitchen. And makes us all one step closer to enjoying these little sopapilla cheesecake rolls.
The cheesecake filling is super simple to put together. It’s possibly the easiest cheesecake I have ever made. Just mix up some cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract. It’s perfect for baking within these rolls. Just imagine the possibilities. You could use any flavoring instead of vanilla if you wanted to make these lemon, or strawberry, or even add a little chocolate. The possibilities are endless!!
And just look how perfect they end up!! These sopapilla cheesecakes are best when served warm and with a drizzle of honey. In my experience they never last long enough around the house to be cold though.

- 6 ounces cream cheese
- 2/3 cup white granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 2 tablespoons white granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

- Line baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with baking spray.
