Sopapilla Cheesecake

Michelle Hickey


This is CRAZY good! Some friends from out of town came to visit and I made this for them. We had gathered some local friends together as well so we had a housefull. Our out of town guest was cutting one piece of this in half and one of our local friends asked him... "what are you doing?" The out of town guest said "cutting this in half". The first friend says "There isnt any point in doing that, you are going to want it all" The out of town guest took a bite and grabbed the other half! So funny!
