Love cinnamon rolls? Us too! They do take quite a bit of work though, and we crave them way more often than just for special occasion breakfasts. While we’ve got a couple different hacks and recipes to get our fix (cinnamon roll cookies, anyone?), this is by far the most impressive. We took the decadent breakfast treat and turned it into a cinnamon sugar-filled cheesecake that’s sure to elicit wows. It might just be our favorite cheesecake recipe yet!

This recipe does have a few extra steps, like making a brown sugar crumble and layering it with the cheesecake, but trust us, they’re worth it. Try splitting your cheesecake filling into a measuring cup with a handle to make it easier to pour, and use your hands (rather than a spoon) to crumble the brown sugar mixture evenly over top. Is your brown sugar too hard to easily crumble? Check out our tips for softening it here.

Don’t have a piping bag to make that swirl on top? No problem. Simply fill a large plastic baggie with your frosting, then cut the tip off one of the corners (start slow—you can always make a bigger hole, but you can’t go back and make it smaller once you’ve cut it). If decorating feels stressful, feel free to keep your icing thinner (add more milk if necessary), and just drizzle it over top of your cake like you would regular cinnamon rolls.

Made this? Let us know how it went in the comments below.

  1. Preheat oven to 325º and grease an 8” or 9″ springform pan with cooking spray. Make cheesecake filling: In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat cream cheese and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, then flour, vanilla, and salt. Set aside.
  2. Make crust: In a large bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, cinnamon and salt. Press mixture into prepared pan.
  3. Make cinnamon filling: In a medium bowl, whisk together brown sugar, cinnamon and flour. Stir in melted butter until cinnamon mixture resembles coarse sand.
  4. Pour 1/3 of filling over crust. Sprinkle 1/2 the cinnamon filling all over, then top with another 1/3 of cheesecake mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon mixture, then top with the rest of the cheesecake mixture. Smooth top.
  5. Wrap bottom of pan in aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet. (If you want to bake the cheesecake in a water bath, wrap bottom of pan and place in a deep baking pan. Pour in enough boiling water to come up halfway in the baking pan.) Bake until center of cheesecake only slightly jiggles, about 1 hour 30 minutes. Turn off heat, prop open oven door, and let cheesecake cool in oven, 1 hour, then remove aluminum foil and refrigerate cheesecake in pan until firm, at least 5 hours and up to overnight.
  6. Meanwhile, make icing: In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese and beat until light and fluffy. Add powdered sugar and vanilla and beat again until smooth. If icing is too thick, add heavy cream tablespoon by tablespoon until desired consistency is reached. Transfer to a piping bag.
  7. When cheesecake is cooled, sprinkle top with cinnamon sugar. Pipe icing in a swirl over the top of the cheesecake. Dust with cinnamon if using. Slice and serve.
