This dessert is restaurant level rich and surprisingly easy!
These sopapilla cheesecakes are unlike the others you’ve seen online. With fried cinnamon sugar won ton wrappers layered with a delicious cinnamon cream cheese mixture, this is a restaurant quality dessert you can make at home.
In the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, whip together the cream cheese, salt, vanilla, confectioner’s sugar and cinnamon. Mix on low for 30 seconds – 1 minute and then increase the speed to medium. Continue mixing for another minute or two, until fully combined and light and fluffy.
Set aside and chill, covered, until you are ready to assemble.
Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a wide bowl and set aside.
In a deep fryer or skillet, heat the oil to 350°F. Fry the wonton wrappers 30 seconds per side, just until they begin to stiffen and brown. Make sure they stay flat.
Remove to a paper towel lined plate for just a few seconds. While they are still hot and coated lightly with oil, toss with the cinnamon sugar. Shake off the excess and set aside.
