Ingredients

SLIDERS

  • 1 package (12 rolls) Kings Hawaiian rolls
  • 8 ounces (1 package) cream cheese, room temperature
  • ½ cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling

TOPPING

  • ¼ cup (half stick or 57g) butter, melted
  • ¼ cup graham crackers, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar

CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • ¼ cup (half stick or 57g) butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup (125g) confectioners' sugar

Instructions

  • To get started, preheat your oven to 350°F.
  • Prepare a 9x13-inch baking dish by spraying it with nonstick spray.
  • Cut the Hawaiian rolls in half, placing just the bottom halves in the prepared dish and setting the tops of the rolls aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese and sugar, mixing until smooth.
  • Spread the cream cheese mixture over the bottom halves of the rolls that are in the baking dish.
  • On top of the cream cheese spread, add the cherry pie filling.
  • Place the top halves of the buns on top of the cherry pie filling.
  • It is now time to make the graham cracker topping. Before you can combine the ingredients, be sure to crush a few graham crackers until you have 1/4 cup of crumbs.
  • In a medium bowl, melt the butter.
  • Add the graham cracker crumbs and sugar to the melted butter.
  • Use a pastry brush to brush the graham cracker mixture over the tops of the buns.
  • Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake the sliders for 20 minutes.
  • After the 20 minutes, remove the foil from the baking dish, and bake for an additional 5 minutes (or until the tops of the sliders turn a golden brown).
  • Meanwhile, it's time to make the cream cheese frosting that you will drizzle over the baked Cherry Cheesecake Sliders.
  • In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and confectioners' sugar. Mix these ingredients until smooth and creamy.
  • After you have removed the sliders from the oven the final time, drizzle the cream cheese mixture over the hot sliders.
  • Slice and serve.
