Let's Make It
Heat oven to 325ºF.
Line 8-inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Spray with cooking spray. Beat Neufchatel, 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla with mixer until well blended. Add eggs; mix well. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake 30 to 35 min. or until center is almost set. Cool completely. Refrigerate 1 hour.
Use foil handles to remove cheesecake from pan before cutting into 12 rectangles. Place 1 rectangle on center of each tortilla. Moisten edge of tortilla with water; fold 2 sides of tortilla over cheesecake, then firmly roll up starting at bottom edge to completely enclose cheesecake. Press edge of roll-up to secure. Place in single layer in shallow pan. Freeze 3 hours.
Mix remaining sugar and cinnamon on plate; set aside. Heat oil in medium saucepan to 350ºF. Add tortilla roll-ups, in batches; cook 3 to 4 min. or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Roll in cinnamon sugar mixture. Serve warm.
