Cheesecake Dessert Tacos! (No Bake Cheesecake!)

Cheesecake Dessert Tacos with cherry filling and whipped topping

Cherry cheesecake is delicious….one of my favorite desserts for sure!  This is a fun twist on the usual no bake cheesecake and a great way to serve it to a crowd!

The shells of these dessert tacos are made from tortillas cut with a round cookie cutter and fried crisp and dusted with graham crumbs.  If you prefer you can dip them in cinnamon sugar after frying (just like I did with my Apple Pie Tacos) or not dip them at all.  The crumbs are yummy and taste great but they are a bit messy…  I personally go for flavor and then sweep if I need to. :)  They only take about 20 seconds each to make and can be made days ahead of time.

I topped mine with cherry pie filling but these can be topped with ANY topping you like! These are the most amazing no bake desserts I may have ever had!

  • Using a 3.5″ circle cutter, cut out circles from your tortillas. You should get about 5 from each tortilla. (You can use any size cutter but this was the perfect size for a 2-3 bite taco).
  • Heat about 1 ½″ of oil in a pan on the stove over medium heat. Use a little scrap of tortilla to put in the oil and make sure it’s good & bubbly.
  • Using tongs, place one circle in the oil for about 5 seconds. Flip it over and fold it in half holding it folded for about 5 seconds or until browned. Flip over and fry the other side until crispy. Immediately remove from the oil giving it a little shake and place into the graham crumbs if using.
  • Set on a pan to cool. You can leave these at room temperature for up to 3 days.
Cheesecake Mixture
  • Cream together cream cheese and lemon juice until soft.
  • Add whipping cream and beat on medium for 2 minutes. Add in sugar and vanilla then beat until stiff and fluffy. Place in a ziploc bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Pipe cheesecake filling into each taco. Top with pie filling and serve.
