Each summer my best friend makes the journey to the lake with her sweet family for our yearly get together. They are the best guests, always jumping up to help, bringing food, etc. Last summer I asked Jill to bring a dessert and she said her husband requested her sopapilla cheesecake. Oh goodness, was this thing delicious. It was a super simple dessert of crescent rolls, cheesecake filling and a topping of cinnamon and sugar. All good things.
Around the same time my parents received a large delivery of peaches. I was using peaches in everything…. Peach salsa, peach cobbler, on cereal, in yogurt, etc. I decided to try adding them to the sopapilla cheesecake. It ended up being a very good idea! I made a few other alterations to the recipe like reducing the butter and sugar in the topping.
The original version served up nicely in perfect pieces, the peach version did not. It was more of a bowl and spoon situation. It was almost like a peach cobbler, but with a creamy cheesecake-y filling. Yum. Perfect summer dessert.
