Fried Cheesecake Roll Ups (brownsugarmama)

Roll Ups

24 oz cream cheese
2/3 c sugar
2 t vanilla
3 1/2 c vegetable oil
1 stick butter, melted
15 – ­20 small flour tortillas
1/2 c sugar & 1 t cinnamon, mixed together

In a large bowl cream the cream cheese, add sugar and vanilla. Take a flour tortilla and add about a spoonful and a half of the cream cheese mix and spread in the middle of the tortilla. Begin to roll the tortilla away from you; half way 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 mix is gone. 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 min on each side. Use a slotted spoon to remove from heat once golden brown on both side. Repeat until all tortillas are cooked. Use a pastry brush and brush each tortilla with butter, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mix and allow to cool before serving. Use the strawberry sauce for dipping.

Sauce

1 lb strawberries, diced
1/4 c sugar
1/8 c vodka (berry flavored if you have it)
1/8 c water
1/8 c strawberry preserves

In a medium sauce pan, add strawberries, sugar, vodka, water and place on low to medium heat and allow to simmer for 10 min. Using a potato smasher, smash the strawberries while in the sauce pan. Add the strawberry preserves and allow to simmer for another 5 – ­7 min or until sauce thickens. Remove from heat.
