Cinnamon Cheesecake Sundaes

Posted on

Crispy shells covered in melted cinnamon and sugar hold a surprise- a rich and creamy cheesecake filling covered with your favorite sundae toppings!


  • 12 wonton wrappers
  • 1 c. sugar (divided)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • cooking spray
  • 1 (8oz) package of Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 (8 oz) tub of Cool Whip
  • chocolate sundae topping (or any flavor you like!)
  • rainbow sprinkles 🙂


  • CUPS: Lay 12 wonton wrappers out on a flat surface
  • Spray both front and back sides of wrappers with cooking spray.
  • Mix 1/2 c. sugar with the cinnamon
  • Carefully coat each wonton wrapper in sugar and cinnamon on both sides.
  • Poke the wrapper down into a muffin cup that has also been sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Bake wrappers at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes (check often) until golden brown on edges.
  • Remove from muffin tin and allow to cool on a plate.
  • FILLING:  Mix Philadelphia Cream Cheese with remaining 1/2 c. sugar until well blended
  • Add vanilla and blend well.
  • Stir in 1/2 of a container of Cool Whip and stir until smooth.
  • When cups are cool, spoon filling evenly into each cup (I used a Small Cookie Scoop to get the “ice cream” look)
  • Top with chocolate or other toppings.
  • Pipe or spoon remaining Cool Whip on the top and then decorate with sprinkles.
  • ENJOY!

Serves: 12


My thoughts:

I created this recipe for the 2011 Real women of Philadelphia cooking contest.  I love the challenge of these contests- they make me think outside the box!  I’ve made this recipe 3 times now and it turns out perfect every time.  What a fun little dessert!  Hope you get a chance to try it out and make the people in your life smile 🙂

  4. This was delicious!

  5. I just made this and came out great especially for being my 1st time!:)
    I do have a question. If I think the filling is too sweet and too heavy; what can I add or remove??
    I was thinking using light creme cheese and maybe more whip cream? Any suggestions??

    • Well, for the sweetness you’d reduce the amount of sugar you add and for the heaviness reduce the cream cheese. Adding more Cool Whip will lighten it up as well. I just love the little cups- so much fun to make! You really could fill them with any kind of mousse or pudding combination. Have fun experimenting!!

    This looks so good! I am in love with your site! These remind me of edible bowls I often make by brushing small flour tortillas with melted butter and sprinkling with cinnamon sugar before baking them in tortilla bowl molds or in ramekins. I first made these for a Cinco De Mayo party years ago to hold homemade jalapeno ice cream (basic ice cream base with jalapeno jelly) or Mexican hot chocolate ice cream (cinnamon and chocolate). I often wanted to do the edible bowls with chocolate cheesecake filling, but they were just too big for such a heavy filling. The won ton shells, however, are PERFECT. I’m imagining all sorts of fillings for these! BTW, your site is my new favorite food porn source.

    • Thank you Angi! I’ve filled these with all sorts of things now- they are the perfect little tiny dessert bowl 🙂 Your flour tortilla bowls sound yummy too! Thanks for stopping by to say hi!
