Sopapilla Cheesecake Recipe
Years ago, I attended a women’s bible study (or book club) at a church we were attending in St. Louis. Someone brought dessert and it was amazing… as a result, the whole group asked for the recipe. Within a week or so, this Sopapilla Cheesecake recipe hit my Inbox!
A spinoff of the traditional Spanish Sopapilla, this dessert is going to be a new favorite. If you like cheesecake, you’re certainly not going to pass this dessert up.
I did what most women do, printed the recipe off, and added it to my recipe binder. But I forgot about it.
Would you believe that I never made it? A dessert that melted in my mouth. That is to say that I remembered wanting all-things cheesecake.

To clarify, I had tucked the Sopapilla Cheesecake away and forgot completely about it. I still can’t believe I did that (insert facepalm). So it wasn’t rediscovered until after we moved.
A few weeks ago, we had a family dinner at our house. I wanted to make a dessert I hadn’t made for them before. Ya know, something new.
Well, this Sopapilla Cheesecake recipe jumped off the pages and, friends, it did not disappoint. In other words…
We have a winner!
The whole family flipped out. And my brother was sure to mention that I could make this anytime we got together. Giggle. Consequently, this Sopapilla Cheesecake recipe was reborn and I scored with a yummy dessert.
