Pinterest Thursday: Sopapilla Cheesecake

The time has come for my first recipe post here on the blog. I am not, by any means, an excellent cook or baker. However, in recent years, I have started to enjoy trying new recipes. It helps that Handy Andy will eat anything and enjoy it. So, for Pinterest Thursday this week, I decided to try Sopapilla Cheesecake. Here's the picture of it I found on Pinterest:

Can you say YUM?! So, obviously, I had to try it. I changed the measurements a little because I didn't want to make as much as the original recipe made.
-2 cans crescent rolls
-1.5 (8oz) packages cream cheese (softened)
-2/3 cup sugar
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-1/4 cup butter (melted)
-Cinnamon & sugar

What I really love about this recipe is that it's super easy! First, roll one tube of the crescent rolls out on the bottom of the un-greased pan, filling any holes (the original post said a 9x13, but I used my small Pyrex which is slightly smaller).

Then, mix the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla together. Spread over the bottom crescent layer, then roll the other tube on the top and spread the melted butter on top. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, bake for 20-30 minutes at 350 degrees, and...

Ok, so not as pretty as the picture from Pinterest, but don't let that deceive you. This stuff is GOOD. And so simple that you really have no excuse not to make it, like right now.

*Just a note: Because I used a smaller pan, the filling was thicker in the middle. Not saying that's a bad thing, but it may be too rich for some when it's that thick.

Happy Thursday!
