There is something known as Sopapilla served in some Spanish American regions, whilst reading about it I came across a recipe for a Sopapilla Cheesecake which is made with Croissant pastry, cream cheese and vanilla, sweet, simple and delicious.
Well a long time ago I decided to elevate this Sopapilla Cheesecake to a different level by adding alcohol to it!
I discovered it works with everything, I started with Bourbon, then rum and today it was time to use some Game of Thrones White Walker, thinking those die hard Game Of Throne fans would really appreciate it!
So here it goes, simple, easy and delectable!
You will need:
- 2 tubes of Pillsbury Buttery Crescent Rolls
- 2 – 8oz packs of Publix Cream Cheese (or cream cheese of choice)
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1/2 cup of Game of Throne White Walkers whiskey or liquor of choice
- 1 tsp of vanilla
For the topping
- 1 tsp of cinnamon
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1/4 stick of butter melted
Grab a large baking pan, I use a 12″ x 18″, place a large sheet of parchment paper and roll out your first tube of Crescent rolls. Pinch the seams nicely to make a large rectangular shape.
In a bowl, mix the softened cream cheese with the sugar, vanilla and whiskey or liquor of choice until it’s nice and creamy.
Place mixture on top of your rectangular pastry and spread it out evenly.
And then top it off with the next tube of crescent rolls, again pinching the seams, remember its called “rustic” for a reason, so just go with the flow.
Preheat oven to 350 deg F and in the meantime, mix the sugar and cinnamon, pour the melted butter on top and then sprinkle the sugar cinnamon mixture on top.
Bake in oven for 30 minutes until nice and golden.
Remove from oven, let it cool down and place in the fridge.
Slice to desired size and share, trust me, there is plenty to go around! Perfect for dessert, tea time, birthday parties, oh and lets not forget, “Game of Throne” Reruns…. the possibilities are endless 🙂
Didn’t I say it was easy?
