Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie
Great recipe! Brought it to a potluck my Ultimate Frisbee team planned, and it was finished by the end of the day. I even got asked for the recipe by one of the members, and another asked me to make it again for their birthday.
It really is simple, by only problem being that it was a little expensive (all-in-all, I spent around $9 on the crescent rolls and cream cheese), and it was too sweet.
If anybody is making this recipe, I would definitely recommend putting in MUCH less sugar. The first time I made the recipe, I heeded the people in the comments' warnings, and put in around 25% less sugar and butter into the recipe. This was still much too sweet in my opinion. Although my team members quite liked it, when I made it again for the birthday party, I put in about half of the sugar in the cream cheese mix and around a quarter of the combined topping (sugar+cinnamon+butter). In my opinion, it tastes much better that way! Also note that instead of dotting the butter on top of the dough, I melted it in the microwave and brushed it on until the top was coated. Do not over-do this!!! The crust will become soft and mushy even after baking instead of crispy like you want it to.
Overall it was a very good dish and I can definitely see myself making it a third time with the adjustments I mentioned above.
