How To Make Fried Cheesecake Bars

This creamy and zesty dessert is just like your usual cheesecake but fried. Do your usual cheesecake recipe and toss the bars in hot oil.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Freeze Time: 4 hours
Total: 4 hours 30 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • 8ozcream cheese,(2 packages) softened
  • 1tbsplemon juice
  • ½tspvanilla extract
  • ½cupgranulated sugar
  • 2cupsheavy cream
  • 1cupall purpose flour
  • 4large eggs,beaten
  • 18graham crackers,crushed
  • 4cupscanola oil,for frying
  • cupstrawberry sauce,for serving
  • 2cupswhipped cream,for serving
  • ½cuppowdered sugar,for serving

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the cream cheese, lemon juice, and vanilla extract.

  2. Once smooth, use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl, then add the sugar and heavy cream. Mix at high speed for about 2 minutes or until the batter is thick and smooth.

  3. Pour batter into a 13×9-inch baking dish lined with parchment paper. Use a spatula to spread the batter evenly and make the top as level as possible.

  4. Freeze for 4 hours.

  5. Fill a gallon-size plastic bag with graham crackers. Use a rolling pin or meat mallet to crush the graham crackers until they are super-fine crumbs. Pour the flour, eggs, and graham cracker crumbs into 3 separate medium bowls.

  6. Heat the oil in a large pot until it reaches 350 degrees F.

  7. Remove the cheesecake batter from the freezer and use the parchment paper to lift it out of the pan. Cut the cheesecake into 12 4×3-inch bars.

  8. Take a piece of cheesecake and toss it in the flour. Tap off any excess flour, dip the piece in the egg, and then toss it in the graham cracker crumbs.

  9. Dip it back in the egg again, then toss in the graham cracker crumbs once more. Repeat with the remaining cheesecake pieces.

  10. Fry the breaded cheesecake, 2 or 3 bars at a time, until golden brown for 30 to 60 seconds.

  11. Drain the cheesecake bars on a wire rack or paper towels.

  12. Serve with strawberry sauce, whipped cream, and powdered sugar.

  13. Enjoy!
