This is a great dessert to serve not only because it tastes good but because you can make it ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator. Made with crescent rolls, a cheesecake filling and topped off with butter then a cinnamon sugar mixture. This can be served cold or warm and drizzled with honey if you wish.

  1. These look awesome! I remember having sopapillas growing up on visits to California at a Spanish restaurant. I have never forgotten them. Once in awhile I think of them and how good they were. Although this is a different take on them they sound amazing!

  2. Looks good! By the way, I made your “Copycat Hamburger Helper.” My family cleaned the pot. I don’t like onions so I left them out. I increased the milk to 3 cups and instead of 1 cup of water I used 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup of beef broth. It was very good. Thanks for the recipe.
