Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Unroll and spread one can of crescent sheets and line them into the bottom of an ungreased nine by 13 glass baking pan. 

2. Make The Filling

To prepare the filling, take a medium bowl and, using an electric mixer combine the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth.

How To Store and Reheat Pumpkin Sopapilla Cheesecake Bars

To store leftover pumpkin sopapilla cheesecake bars, you can place them in an airtight container and refrigerate them. Before eating the bars again, you can place them in the oven for 5 minutes. I prefer avoiding the microwave to heat the bars as the texture of the Sopapilla becomes soft on heating in a microwave.

Don’t have ready-made pumpkin pie spice at home? There’s no need to worry. You can easily make it at home using just four ingredients. 

Take a bowl and combine four teaspoons of ground cinnamon, two teaspoons of ground ginger, one teaspoon of ground cloves, and ½ teaspoon of ground nutmeg. This recipe makes about 21/2 tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice. You can store it in a covered jar.

While making this recipe, keep in mind to use cream cheese at room temperature. This will help you combine all the ingredients easily.

This step is important on the bottom crescent layer, as it prevents the filling from seeping out.
