Excellent recipe. Made the recipe for an international food gathering. I didn't alter the recipe other than using less of the cinnamon/sugar on top. I will fix the recipe again.

YUMMY !! DD brought over a taste for us, so I picked up the ingredients right away. Followed the suggestion of others to add sour cream and lemon zest, which was right on -- also cut back the amount of sugar in the filling. Super simple and a genuine sugar rush -- a small piece is plenty ! Thanks for posting !

i made this just for my husband and i to try out. very easy to make! this will come in handy for family and friend get togethers. i had seen other recipes which suggested a drizzling of honey over top so instead of using the cinnamon/sugar topping i combined honey w/the melted butter and poured it over the top crescent layer and then just liberally sprinkled cinnamon on top of that. if you like those big gooey cinnabons then you will love this because to me that is exactly what this dessert tasted like!

This is a family favorite.
I flour the dough to keep it from getting too moist.

Very good recipe for this quick, easy dessert. I've had this several times, but this was my first attempt at making it, and it turned out great! I used neufchatel cheese instead of cream cheese, and I used splenda instead of sugar, using a half cup of splenda in the cheese instead of 1 cup, and only a generous sprinkle on top, dusted with cinnamon, as we prefer our desserts more creamy than sweet. Also, the husband drizzled honey over the cheese layer, and this was the perfect touch. He said, it can't be called sopapilla anything without honey. This was great! Thanks for the recipe!

This recipe is super easy and delicious. I found it to be a little salty though. Next time I will make sure to use unsalted butter. I also drizzled the top with a little honey before serving. I will definitely make this again!

This was very good and easyt to make. I'll deffinetley make this again. I think next time I will reduce the cinnamon sugar mixture to 1/3 and the butter to 1/3.

I've made this several times now and it's a big hit every time. I like to sprinkle the bottom crust with some cinnamon sugar before adding the cheesecake filling, and I drizzle generously with honey as soon as it's out of the oven. A favorite at home and at the office - thanks for sharing :)
