What is sopapilla?

Sopapilla is a Mexican fried pastry and quick bread. For this recipe, I’ve taken a short cut and used crescent rolls in place of a traditional sopapilla and I promise you won’t be able to tell the difference! It’s such a great hack and the results are super good!

How long do they keep?

Once the cheesecake bars have been cut into squares and are fully cooled, place them into an airtight container, with the layers separated with parchment. They will keep well for 3 to 4 days.

Can you freeze them?

Yes, these bars freeze really well. Flash freeze the squares on a baking sheet before transferring to an airtight container of freezer bag. Thaw them in the fridge overnight or for a couple of hours at room temperature.

  • Be sure to spray your baking dish with non-stick spray before placing in the pastry layer.
  • Bake the cheesecake bars in a fully pre-heated oven so that they cook through evenly.
  • Let the sopapilla cheesecake bars rest for 10 minutes before slicing into 12 pieces and serving.
