The best part of these Fried Cheesecake Rolls isn’t just the filling, but it is the topping.

You can try dipping these into chocolate, caramel, butterscotch, or a different fruity dipping sauce. In fact, what would be cute (thinking of kids) is to make a bunch of these cheesecake rolls, layout a bunch of dipping sauces, and let the kids go crazy! You would be the star and will be getting requests for this dessert all the time!

You’ll Need:

  • ⅔ c. sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3½ c. vegetable oil
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 15-20 small flour tortillas
  • ½ c. sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon


  • 1 lb. strawberries, diced
  • ¼ c. sugar
  • ⅛ c. vodka (berry flavored if you have it)
  • ⅛ c. water
  • ⅛ c. strawberry preserves


  1. For the sauce: In a medium saucepan, add the strawberries, sugar, vodka, water, and place on low to medium heat and allow to simmer for 10 minutes. Using a potato masher, smash the strawberries while in the saucepan. Add the strawberry preserves and allow to simmer for another 5-7 minutes or until sauce thickens. Remove from heat.
  2. In a large bowl, cream the cream cheese, add the sugar, and vanilla extract. Take a flour tortilla and add about a spoonful and a half of the cream cheese mixture and spread in the middle of the tortilla. Begin to roll the tortilla away from you; halfway through tuck in the sides; and roll to the end of the other side of the tortilla making a roll. Complete the process until all of the cream cheese mixtures is gone.
  3. In a large saute pan on medium heat (make sure it isn't too high) heat the vegetable oil. Add a couple of the cheesecake filled tortillas to the pan seam side up. Allow to fry for 1 minute on each side. Use a slotted spoon to remove from heat once golden brown on both sides. Repeat until all tortillas are cooked.
  4. Use a pastry brush and brush each tortilla with butter, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture, and allow to cool before serving. Use the strawberry sauce for dipping.
