This is one of my faveorite desserts to order at Applebee's! I got this from recipegoldmine.com. Prep and cook time are estimates, so make sure you leave yourself enough time to make each chimicheesecake, let them set in the fridge, fry, bake, and plate them.
- 10 -12 flour tortillas (6 1/2 inch)
- 16 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 6 tablespoons flour
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 (20 ounce) cancooked apples, drained very well
- 1⁄2 cup almond toffee pieces
- 1⁄2 cup sugar, and
- 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon, mixed very well
- vanilla ice cream
- caramel topping
- Beat cream cheese until fluffy; add sugar and eggs, then beat again.
- Add vanilla extract and mix well.
- Fold toffee bits and apple pieces into cheese mixture.
- On tortilla, place a serving in the middle, about 2 1/2 inches from each side of shell.
- Tuck sides in slightly and roll shell to seal the filling and hold in the cream cheese.
- When all shells have been stuffed and rolled, place in refrigerator; chill to set filling.
- In deep fryer heat vegetable oil.
- When ready, place chimicheesecake in oil and fry until slightly golden, while carefully turning on each side.
- Remove from oil.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place chimicheesecake on cookie sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes.
- Remove from oven and liberally sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.
- Serve cheesecake slightly warm with a scoop of ice cream and carmel topping drizzled on top.
Wow, is this good! Apple and caramel cheesecake filling.
1. As another reviewer mentioned this is really runny and does not stay in the middle of the tortilla. 2. Do not use cheap tortillas! I sent someone else shopping and should have known that I would not get what I wanted. 3. This being said, my tortillas ripped every time and because the mixture was so runny it just ended up everywhere. Also I cut this recipe in half and still had a ton of mixture leftover (did not want to deal with it either). But in the end after being fried they turned out awkward but ended up tasting great but with unfortunately a very thick tortilla "layer" so we drizzled them with the extra mixture. So I will keep this recipe on hand for when I decide to deep fry stuff as it worked out well in the end :D
What a tasty dessert! My husband said it was a keeper. I couldn't find in the directions where you add the flour so I just added it in with the cheese mix. It must have been right. I'll definately make this again.
