Cinnamon Cheesecake Sopapillas

I love this recipe!  It is the perfect ending to a fiesta meal! Usually Sopapillas are fried dough balls rolled in a cinnamon sugar mixture. This goes beyond a simple fried dough recipe. And….. it’s baked for easy everyday at home baking!!

 As good as this recipe is, I always imagine how to make a dish better! All this dish needs to take it over the top is some dipping sauces! Chocolate, Raspberry, Caramel? Yes please!!
