A while back I ended up with a lot of canned crescent rolls due to a great sale at Costco, so I asked for ideas of what to do with them on our facebook page.  One of our awesome readers, Joyce, said I should try sopapilla cheesecake, and Lucy told me that Joyce is a fantastic cook, so I decided to follow her advice.

Sopapilla cheesecake is a really simple recipe, but it has fantastic results.  Everyone who tried these loved them!

I have made this many times and it is always a big hit at potlucks. One thing I do different is after I sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on after it is finished baking I give it a good squirt of honey all over. Delish!
