Delicious cherry cheesecake… One of my favourite desserts for sure! This is a fun twist on the usual cheesecake and a great way to present it to the crowd!
° 6 large flour tortillas
° frying oil
° Graham crumbs are optional, this makes them a bit messy but tastes great
° 8 ounces cream cheese
° 1 cup heavy cream
° 1 teaspoon lemon juice
° 1/4 cup powdered sugar
° 1 teaspoon vanilla
° 1 packet of pie filling any flavor
Using a 3.5-inch circular cutter, cut circles of tortillas. You should get about 5 of each tortilla. (You can use a cutter of any size but this was the perfect size for 2-3 taco bites.)
Heat about 1 1/2 of the oil in a frying pan on the stove over medium heat. Use a bit of tortilla scrap to put the oil in and make sure it’s nice and bubbling.
Using tweezers, place one circle in the oil for about 5 seconds. Flip and fold in half, keeping folded for 5 seconds or until browned. Flip and fry the other side until crispy. Immediately remove from oil, shake slightly, and roll in graham crackers if using.
Put it on a frying pan to cool. You can leave it at room temperature for up to 3 days.
