Sopapilla Cheesecake

Have you entered my Disney Family Fun magazine giveaway?  If not, you can enter here!

I don’t even know what to say about this recipe except… IT’S UNBELIEVABLE!!!  I am totally serious.  It’s one of the best desserts I’ve had in quite awhile.  (I use dessert kind of loosely… I had it for breakfast a couple of times.)  =o)

I first saw this over on Mickey’s blog, Monster Mama.  It was love at first site.  Doesn’t it look wonderful?!?!  And it’s so easy!

* 2 cans of Cresent Roll dough
* 2 (8 oz.) packages of cream cheese, softened
* 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
* 1 cup sugar
* 1/4 cup butter, melted
* Cinnamon and sugar

Roll out on of the can of cresent dough in the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch pan.  You’ll have to squish it out to cover the bottom of the pan and seal the holes.

Combine cream cheese, vanilla and 1 cup sugar.

Spread over cresent dough.

Top with the other can of cresent dough.

Drizzle with melted butter and then sprinkle generously with cinnamon and sugar over the top.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes.  When it’s lightly golden brown and bubbly it’s done.  (Or when you can’t take it anymore because it smells so good!)

What do you think?  Heaven, right? I had to cut into it when it was still warm.  I about passed out.  It was so good!

Oh yeah, and don’t forget to refrigerate it =o)
