If you’ve never had a sopapilla then I feel sorry for you. Here in Texas it is a traditional dessert from practically every Mexican food restaurant that has opened its’ doors. It is a fried tortilla sprinkled with cinnamon, sugar, and brown sugar. Smother that in butter, drizzle with honey, and I promise you will think you are in heaven, but if that is indeed heaven, then there must be levels to heaven because this sopapilla cheesecake will make you think you have transcended to a whole new level. Ok. Maybe it isn’t heaven, but it certainly must qualify as the new ambrosia; the sweet nectar of the gods. My sister-in-law made two pans of this for Christmas at my in-laws and we ate pieces while playing dominoes until we were almost sick. It is that delicious.
