Sopapilla Cheesecake

I've been wanting to make this recipe for years now and finally got around to it! I honestly could not believe how easy it was either. The recipe only calls for 6 ingredients and literally anyone could make it. The best part though is how amazing it is! It's everything I thought it would be and more.
The only tricky part is carefully spreading the cheesecake mixture over the first layer of crescent dough, but once that's done, it's basically magic! Here's a before and after of what it looks like once it's baked. Talk about the best dessert ever!
The crescent rolls are perfectly soft and crisped with the cinnamon sugar and butter mixture on top. Then the creamy cheesecake just makes this dessert a dream. This is one dessert you definitely need to try!
