Inspired by the popular Mexican pastry, these cinnamon sugar cheesecake bars—with their sweet cream cheese filling, crunchy-sweet topping and flaky crescent crust—are dangerously good, and dangerously easy to make. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Expert Tips

For a more authentic sopapilla flavor, top with honey.

These need to be stored in the refrigerator, but are best served warm. Heat bars in microwave uncovered 5 to 10 seconds to rewarm.
