Easy Sopapilla Cheesecake Recipe – Tricks and Tips

Easy Sopapilla Cheesecake Recipe

The base of this cheesecake treat is crescent rolls, which make putting it together easy. “If you don’t have crescent rolls on hand you have a few options. You can use a frozen pie shell, frozen pie crust or frozen puff pastry sheets. All will work just fine. You just want to use something that needs to be baked versus a pre-made crust like a graham cracker crust,” Hahn explains. You’ll also need butter (salted or unsalted will work, though Hahn usually goes with unsalted), sugar, vanilla, cream cheese, cinnamon, melted butter, and allspice.

“The special ingredient in this recipe is the allspice,” Hahn says. “I love adding this to baked goods because you quickly get a hint of nutmeg and cloves which is such a good complement to cinnamon in sweet recipes.”
