Sopapilla Cheesecake~~ My Favorite Dessert!!

This is my absolute favorite dessert and it is definitely a "Go To" recipe when I have to bring a dessert somewhere. It only takes about 5 minutes to prepare and 20 or so minutes in the oven, but it tastes like you slaved in the kitchen for hours!  The great thing is that you can always keep the ingredients on hand because both cream cheese and crescent rolls have a pretty long shelf life in the refrigerator. You can't go wrong with this dessert, try it and you'll see!
Sopapilla Cheesecake

-2 cans pillsbury butter crescent rolls
-2 (8oz) packages cream cheese (softened)
-1 cup sugar
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-1/4 cup butter (melted)
-Cinnamon & sugar

Unroll and spread 1 can crescent rolls on bottom of un-greased pan. Combine softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla. Spread mixture over crescent rolls. Unroll and spread the second package of crescent rolls over mixture. Brush melted butter over the top and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. 

You can serve this warm or cold, depending on your preference, I enjoy it both ways. Be sure to refrigerate for long periods of time.

* You can easily half this recipe using an 8x8 pan and splitting 1 roll of crescent rolls for the top and the bottom.
*Don't have cinnamon and sugar at home? See my post for making your own cinnamon sugar in seconds. It is quick and easy to make and so much cheaper than purchasing it premixed in the store.
