6-Ingredient Churro Cheesecake Bars

Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations Seamless Dough Sheets [2] make assembly even easier as there's no need to press the seams together.

Churro Cheesecake Bars


  1. 16 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
    3/4 cup granulated sugar, divided
    1 large egg
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 (8-ounce) cans Pillsbury Crescents
    1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 13-by-9-inch casserole dish, and line the bottom with parchment paper.
  2. Using a stand or hand mixer, beat together the cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, egg, and vanilla until smooth and homogenous.
  3. Unroll one of the cans of crescent-roll dough, and press it into the bottom of the casserole dish. Press the seams together, and work it about 1/4 inch up the sides of the casserole dish (to contain the filling). Spread the cream cheese filling evenly over the dough.
  4. Unroll the remaining can of crescent-roll dough onto a piece of wax or parchment paper. Press the seams together. Invert the crescent-roll dough into the casserole dish. Press the edges of the two sheets of crescent-roll dough together.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until puffy and deep golden brown. Transfer to a cooling rack.
  6. Meanwhile, mix together the remaining 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon.
  7. Generously sprinkle the bars with cinnamon sugar while still hot. (You may have extra.) Let the bars cool completely before cutting into squares.
