Fried Cheesecake

This is the best 2 ingredient dessert in the world.  Ok, it IS a bit of a cheat that I count a premade cheesecake as one ingredient, but I took the easy way out and bought some little cheesecakes to use in this.  My grocery store was running a special on teesny individual sized cheesecakes, which is what actually made the lightbulb of cheesecakeliciousness go off in my head.  I love that this isn't a super sweet dessert.  It's a nice 'little something sweet' and you can make as many or as few as you'd like.

Fried Cheesecake

Wonton wrappers
Premade cheesecake (your own or storebought)
Canola or Vegetable Oil (for fying)
Powdered Sugar (if desired)

1 - Add approximately 1/2 inch of oil to a skillet and heat over medium heat

2 - Place a wonton wrapper on a flat surface
3 - Spoon approximately a tablespoon of premade cheesecake onto the center of the wonton wrapper

4 - Seal wontons by rubbing water onto 2 of the wonton wrapper sides

5 - And folding the other 2 sides over to form a triangle - press edges together to seal.  You could also do any number of beautifully fancy folding techniques.  I was all about expediency of cheesecake to mouth, so I went the fastest folding route. 

6 - Fry wontons in small batches approximately 1 minute per side (or until goldenbrown)

 7 - Move fried wontons to paper towel covered plate to cool and allow the excess oil to drain

8 - Dust with powdered sugar (if desired).  A nice berry sauce would also have been a perfect accompaniment.

The batch I made were devoured too quickly to get a good picture of the inside.  But it is absolutely heavenly - the crunchy wonton wrapper...the sweet, creamy cheesecake.  Just like crab wontons...but without the crab...and really, not like crab wontons at all.  Sorry, stream of consciousness there. 

From this point forward I might wrap all deserts in wonton wrappers and fry them.  Things could get messy.  But if wonton wrappers are wrong, I don't wanna be right...
