I made these for my picky daughter who usu loves sopapillas. She didn't like them at all--they "had no honey and tasted like cheesecake" (which she doesn't like-the skinny wench!)...HOWEVER, my husband and son devoured the whole pan in less than 24 hours! I used reduced fat products and will probably reduce the amount of butter next time. So if you are looking for a true Tex-mex sopapilla, look on...BUT if you are looking for a quick, easy, super gooey cheese-cinnamony filled treat, try this-- you won't be disappointed. Thanks for posting!

I had this at a teacher Christmas party a few years ago and have made it many times since then. Rich and delicious! I let it cool a little before serving or all the filling will run.

tasty and supersweet. i added 1/4 cup sour cream to the cream cheese to make it a bit less sweet and it worked well. lemon zest might also be a nice addition.
