Churro Cheesecake

What is a Churro Cheesecake?

A churro cheesecake is a homemade cheesecake that tastes like churros!  A simple crust made of Maria cookies is topped with a creamy cheesecake filling. Then the dessert is finished with Pillsbury crescent dough topped with cinnamon sugar.

Make the Crust

Crush Maria Cookies in a food processor with a few other ingredients.

Press into a Baking Pan

Press the crust into the bottom of a baking sheet lined with foil & sprayed with PAM.

Add the Filling

Sprinkle the crust with cinnamon sugar, then top with the cheesecake filling.

Add The Dough

Add rolled out crescent dough, then top with butter and cinnamon sugar.


Bake until the filling has set and the top has baked through. It will be golden like you see here. :)

Dig In!

Cut into squares and dig in! You can top your churro cheesecake slices with whipped cream and berries if you like.
