This delicious little recipe from [www.ohbiteit.com] definitely deserves a five star rating. They were light, fluffy, and very easy to make. This tasty dessert was well worth the time and effort. When I first saw churro cheesecake, I assumed it would be a difficult task to do.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. The first thing to do with this tasty dessert is to open one package of the crescent dinner rolls. The recipe calls for a 9×13” greased pan. I ended up using a 9×9” and it worked out just fine. When you place the crescent rolls into the bottom make sure to press the creases together so the dough ‘seals’. Mix the two packages of softened cream cheese, vanilla, egg, and a 1/2 cup sugar with a hand beater. I didn’t have a mixer to use and ended up mixing it with a fork. This makes the cheesecake filling, so the texture of mine was not as smooth. I highly recommend the hand beater instead if possible, but if not, the taste is still there. When the cheesecake filling is smooth spread it onto the first layer of the crescent rolls, or bottom of this dessert. To make the top layer of the dessert, the second can of crescent rolls needs to be spread out on wax paper. Spread it as the same size as the pan being used and make sure it ‘seals’. Remove it from the wax paper and put over the layer of cheesecake filling. Bake it for 30-35 minutes until golden brown.
While it is baking put the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar in a bowl and mix it with the cinnamon. When it is done baking, sprinkle the sugar/cinnamon mixture evenly on the top. This finishes the dessert. Let cool and then cut and enjoy.
I had no complaints about this scrumptious dessert. It was sweet, fresh, and a different spin on a cheesecake. The cinnamon with the cheesecake and fluffy crescents really gave this bold flavor its kick. For a college student, the price isn’t very expensive either. It only took about 10 minutes of prep time and then the 30 minutes to bake so time isn’t too much of a concern. It wasn’t too messy either. I would recommend this dessert to anybody. It would be great for a party as I cut mine into four pieces of four rows to make sixteen pieces.
