Deep-Fried Cheesecake has never been easier to make. Frying a flour tortilla filled with a simple cream cheese filling, dusted in cinnamon sugar, and made with a strawberry dipping is a delicious and quick dessert that everyone will love.
I had Fried Cheesecake Rolls a long time ago at Longhorn Steakhouse, and I don’t know what I was amazed at more; the Fried Cheesecake or the honey wheat bread. Maybe it was a bit of both. Whatever it was, I thought they were pretty darn amazing! Who knew that you could fry Cheesecake? Well, in this country, deep-fried desserts are the norm. Don’t believe me? I just saw Fried Watermelon on TV just a few weeks ago.
Anyway, when it comes to Fried Cheesecake, I love the crunch of the exterior of the cheesecake. What makes this dessert even more perfect is the strawberry dipping sauce I made which is divine! Inspired by my dessert experience from Longhorn, I had to come up with a way to make my strawberry cheesecake rolls AKA cheesecake egg rolls.
How to make Deep Fried Cheesecake
I considered making these Fried Cheesecake Rolls as easy as possible. Do I make a cheesecake first and fry it in some batter? Do I buy a cheesecake, roll it up in something, and fry it that way? What the heck should I do?
After several tries and mistakes, I came up with a perfect answer. You have to freeze them before frying them! At first, when I made these cheesecake rolls, I made the cheesecake batter, added the cheesecake filling to the tortilla, and fried them up. Although they were still delicious, I didn’t like having warm cream cheese.
Once you make the cream cheese filling listed below, you will assemble the cheesecake rolls, place them in the freezer for about an hour, and then fry them. That is the key to success with this easy Fried Cheesecake recipe. Did I mention this recipe does not contain eggs? Yep, no need for the eggs in this recipe at all! And, of course, you have to sprinkle some extra sugar on top.
Use different dipping sauces
These Fried Cheesecake Rolls are great and perfect for small dinner gatherings if you don’t want to make a time-consuming dessert. The best part of these Fried Cheesecake Rolls isn’t just the filling and the strawberry dipping sauce. Dipping these cheesecake rolls into a sweet, tart strawberry sauce makes these babies more delicious. You can use different sauces to dip the deep-fried cheesecake bites. You can try dipping these into:
- Chocolate sauce
- Caramel Sauce
- Butterscotch Sauce
- Raspberry Sauce
What would be cute (thinking of kids) is to make a bunch of these cheesecake rolls, lay out a bunch of dipping sauces, and let the kids go crazy! You would be the star and get requests for this dessert all the time!
