(Culinary.net) Finding a unique dessert to impress others can be a tall task. Cakes, brownies and cookies are classics but can be boring and repetitive. When you want something easy, delicious and made to impress, think outside the sweet treat box.
Next time you’re in a pinch for something sweet, try these Sopapilla Bars. They have a sugary, crunchy exterior, but on the inside, they are creamy and delicious.
Great for gatherings of all kinds, they’re cut into perfect portions and rare enough to give partygoers something to talk about.
The prep is simple and they can be made in advance then stored in the fridge overnight so there is no last-minute rushing around the kitchen.
To start, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese until soft. Add sugar and cornstarch then combine. Add vanilla extract and one egg then beat until combined.
Place one can of unrolled crescent rolls in the bottom of a lightly greased pan and pinch together the seams.
Add cream cheese mixture to the pan and spread out smooth. Then add remaining unrolled crescent rolls on top before spreading with melted butter.
Mix together sugar and cinnamon to sprinkle over the top of the bars.
Bake for 35-40 minutes. Cool to room temperature and chill in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight.
These bars are also the perfect sweet treat for kids. They will love the sugar-coated top and you will love they are expanding their palates by trying something new.
Whether it’s a birthday party, a barbecue or any celebration, this dessert is the way to go. It’s sweet, it’s got texture and it’s a home run when it comes to a simple sweet.
