Sopapilla Cheesecake

Description :

Traditionally a pillow-shaped deep-fried dough, sopapillas are beignet-esque and often topped with cinnamon sugar. Naturally, it follows that sopapilla and cheesecake are a match made in heaven: crispy, sweet dough sandwiching creamy, smooth cheesecake filling is a combination that can't be beat.
