Churro Cheesecake Bars


When Christmas season rolls around, nothing’s better than the smell of cinnamon sugar wafting through the house. Takes me back to my childhood every time. My mom always made homemade goodies like gingerbread men for the holidays, and I have fond memories of helping her in the kitchen.
Now I love baking even more than she did! I have several classic recipes that are favorites, but it’s always fun to experiment. These churro cheesecake bars are a fun combination of two classic desserts. My family was thrilled with the result!

How to make churro cheesecake bars:
Ingredients:
sugar
ground cinnamon
cream cheese
egg
vanilla
Pillsbury crescent dinner rolls
The crust for these bars is made from cans of crescent rolls, so they are super simple! If you can find the crescent roll dough that comes all in one sheet, it works the best.
Start by mixing up your cheesecake filling, then set the mixture aside.
Spray your 9×13″ pan with non stick spray, then sprinkle it with a cinnamon sugar mixture. Lightly flour a piece of waxed paper, then press one of the cans of dough out into a 9×13″ rectangle. If you have the kind that’s cut into triangles like mine is, press all of the seams firmly together.
Flip the dough over on top of the cinnamon sugar and press it into the sides of the pan.

Spread the cheesecake filling evenly onto the crust.

Roll out the remaining can of dough the same way you did the first one, then flip it carefully onto the filling. Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar mixture on top.
Pop the pan into a preheated 350° oven and bake for about 30 minutes. Let cool, then cut into squares.

How to store churro cheesecake bars:
Because of the cream cheese in the filling, these bars need to be refrigerated. They are best eaten the first day, but they will last for 2-3 days in the fridge. The crust will not be as crunchy though.
