Who Wants Cheesecake?

I hope y'all don't mind me reposting a couple of these recipes, but I did't have many readers when I originally posted some of these and I figure if I repost, you wont have to go hunting for them, although they are worth hunting for. :)

This is in the oven this morning and if you get here fast, there might be a piece left for you.

Sopapilla Cheesecake

Oh my! We went to a friend's house for Thanksgiving and dined on lots of wonderful, yummy things. This cheesecake was the best and she graciously sent us home with the little that was left. DH said it made the best breakfast the next morning! LOL! I have been so blessed by her friendship...and her recipes!

I visited with Ranch Wife this week to see what I could bring for our Cowboy Fellowship Christmas Service and I told her I had just discoved a great new dessert. She said she had one as well and it made me laugh when we both said "Sopapilla Cheesecake"! Just goes to show that great minds really do think alike! I know that this will be gracing our table during Spring Works - I'm pretty certain that the crew will give it a thumbs up!

Sopapilla Cheesecake

2 cans crescent rolls
2 (8 oz) cream cheese, softened - not low fat - go for the good stuff!
2 C sugar (divided)
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 C butter
ground cinnamon

*Roll one can crescent dough into bottom of greased 9x13 baking pan.
*Stretch dough and pinch seams together to form crust.
*Blend together cream cheese, 1 C sugar and 1 tsp vanilla
*Spread over dough - not too close to edge
* Stretch second can of crescent rolls over cream cheese layer to form top crust
*Melt butter and 1 C sugar and 1 tsp vanilla and pour over crust
*Sprinkle with cinnamon
*Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes

This same friend once had a restaraunt in Houston and now has a catering business here. We're helping her with a couple of parties next week so it'll be fun to see what else she has up her sleeve! I love to cook so I'm really looking forward to this! Be sure and remind me of that when I come back here later this week and complain about how much my feet hurt! It'll be hard to keep up with S! Maybe some of her energy will rub off on me. I can hope, can't I?

Y'all enjoy!

This is my kind of recipe - easy and yet sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing it again.

Oh my gracious ... after feeding all the workers for two weeks, you're helping a friend with a couple of parties?!? And you talk about *me* being on the go?!? LOL!! I get worn out just reading about all you do! Well ... I really enjoy reading about all you do -- it's a lifestyle that (regardless of my cowboy/fire fighter comment the other day) has always fascinated me! The cheesecake sounds marvelous -- and fairly easy, too, which is always a nice plus. (Which is what I'll be if you keep posting these dessert recipes!) :)

Sounds wonderful! I'm glad I bought a 200 pack of recipe cards! I think I'll start a tab in my file box named "Karin." Got to put Cresent Rolls on my grocery list.
Thanks so much! Would you like a really good non-alcoholic Christmas punch recipe?

Karin, whenever I make this recipe there is none left. Not a crumb! It is sinfully delicious!
