"I love this dessert! Instead of digging through my books for the recipe to this yummy dish I went to check the recipe on Allrecipes. I never found it and it is great! A big hit at potlucks and ladies meetings. Enjoy!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

My rating is for the recipe as is, it's very good. I won't change a recipe then rate it based on the changes. And quite frankley I don't know why allrecipes allows that, it's certainly not fair to the submitter. Having said that, IMHO adding an egg to the cream cheese/sugar mixture turns this into a 5 star recipe!
I get requests for this at potlucks. Very good. I cut the butter down a little. I didn't like seeing it sitting in puddles on top when I took it out of the oven.
I have been making this dessert for some time. My whole family loves it! An easy way to enjoy cheesecake. I also looked on this site and did not find this recipe and added it 2 weeks ago. I don't know what happened and why it did not register. You can also add a can of pie filling of your choice; peach, cherry, apple, etc. before adding the last layer of crescent rolls. Yummy!
Simple and scrumptious. I put a layer of pecan pieces between first crescent layer and cheesecake layer. Drizzled honey over cheesecake when removed from oven. Check oven starting at about 38-39 minutes, might not require full 45 min to bake. Definite keeper...
Wow this was really good. I almost didn't make it because of the creasent rolls but I am so glad I did. It was super easy. Followed the recipe exactly. Like someone else said besure to use real butter. And when it came out of the oven I drizzeled honey ALL OVER it. That is how I like my Sopapillas...but if your a chocolate fan you could drizzle that too. The whole pan got ate up and everyone loved it. Thanks!!!!
Just a note there is another listed "Cream Cheese Squares" that is the same w/o the nuts - whichever way you make it - DELICIOUS. (if you want to add a flavor, try raspberry pie filling on top of cheese layer, then the other layer of dough & cinn & sugar; or Lemon Curd/pie filling - heaven!!)
One of my patients told me about this recipe, so I had to make it. Made it last night for Christmas Eve dinner and it was a hit! The only thing I changed was that I sprayed my baking dish before putting down the crescent roll dough and I did not use the almonds. You have got to try this recipe!!!
Thanks for sharing. I substituted 1c. ricotta cheese for 8 oz. of cream cheese. Drizzled honey on after it came out of the oven. Yum!
