Sopapilla Cheesecake Bars

So, I’ll be honest.
I have never been the biggest cheesecake fan. I have only had maybe 2 that I like.
I have to have the perfect combination of flavor and texture or else it’s not worth eating.
{I will be posting the recipe to one of them shortly.}
This particular recipe for Sopapilla Cheesecake Bars got really good reviews and I know the rest of the world LOVES cheesecake so I thought “Why not?” Plus it is surrounded by a deliciously flaky cinnamon sugar crust. Now THAT sounded amazing to me.
 I still did not have that high of expectations but this turned out AMAZING!
I was so pleasantly surprised when I bit into it for the first time.
I thought to myself, “If THIS is cheesecake, I can do this.”
It turned out to be a favorite of many at the Mexican Taco Bar Party.
 Considering how delicious this was, the prep was nothing! You bake it in a large 9 x 13″ glass pan and then cut it up! That’s it.
I have said this before, but please get quality ingredients. Get a good brand name of cream cheese. It makes a huge difference.
So here you go, amigos. The Recipe. 
Happy Cinco de Mayo! Enjoy.
