Cheesecake Sopapilla Bars

A picture of these yummy bars popped up on my FB feed the other day, so when it came time to find a recipe for my husbands potluck lunch, I knew this was what I wanted to make. I had made these once before, but it’s been years. I forgot just how delicious they are! The perfect mix of cinnamon sugar and creamy cheesecake filling.

It’s these small things that I love doing for my husband. When he was in the military they had potlucks for everything! I would always make something and then go up to his office for the potluck. I’ve missed making food for him to take into work, I always used it as an opportunity to try new recipes. Back to these yummy treats, they were a huge hit! Seriously you guys have to make these, and not only are they yummy, they are so quick and easy to make! Unfortunately, I was rushing to get these bars made so I didn’t take pictures during the process.

Here’s the recipe I used:


  • 2 (8oz.) packs of Pillsbury crescent rolls
  • 2 (8oz.) packs of cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray.
  3. Press a can of the crescent rolls to the bottom of the dish.
  4. Combine softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla.
  5. Spread cream cheese mixture over crescent rolls.
  6. Place the remaining crescent roll over the top and stretch to the edges.
  7. Brush across the entire top of the crescent roll with the melted butter.
  8. Sprinkle the top with 1/2C cinnamon sugar.
  9. Bake for about 25- 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
  10. Let cool ( I placed mine in the fridge overnight so the cheesecake filling would thicken)
  11. Slice into bars and serve.

If you try these, let me know what you think 🙂
