Expert Tips

  • Use a crescent roll sheet so that you don’t have to worry about the crescent roll seams. This will save you lots of time on this easy recipe.
  • Make sure your cream cheese for the tangy cream cheese filling is soft before mixing. Leave it out for a bit or use the microwave on low power if you forget. This ensures a nice and smooth batter.
  • For best results, allow the churros cheesecake bars to cool a bit before cutting into them. This helps them hold their shape better when you slice them into delicious pieces.
