Tortilla Apple Cheesecake

This recipe reminds me of Applebee's dessert and is quick to prepare.


  • 2 (9-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped, peeled apple
  • Oil for frying
  • Vanilla ice cream (optional)
  • Caramel topping (optional)


  1. Let tortillas stand at room temperature while making filling.
  2. Mix sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
  3. Using a fork, mash cream cheese with vanilla extract, stirring until smooth.
  4. Stir in apple. Spoon filling down centers of tortillas, leaving 1 1/2 inches at top and bottom. To enclose filling, fold top and bottom onto cream cheese; roll up.
  5. Heat oil over medium heat in skillet about 1/2 inch deep. Fry tortillas on both sides until golden. Turn out onto paper towel and immediately into cinnamon sugar.
  6. Serve plain or with ice cream and topping.

Serves 2.
