Churro Cheesecake Bars . . . the crunchy cinnamony goodness of a churro filled with a tangy cream cheese filling. The best of two desserts rolled into one!
Bar cookies like snickerdoodle blondies and sugar cookie bars make a regular appearance at my house. They are great for feeding a crowd, and everyone loves them. These cheesecake churro bars are a new favorite.
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!
Crunchy cinnamon sugar crust with a cheesecake filling. Who can resist that? These tasty bars will make your house smell like Christmas, and every bite is simply scrumptious. The textures and flavors combine to make one unbeatable dessert!
HOW TO MAKE CHURRO CHEESECAKE BARS:
- ground cinnamon
- cream cheese
- 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.
