Description

This is a fantastic recipe that I have used for years when I am craving cheesecake with a twist. Egg rolls are filled with cream cheese, ricotta, and sugar and topped with fresh fruit. Mmmmm! Definitely chic and crowd pleasing!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 cup Fresh Berries
  • 1 package Egg Roll Wrappers
  • 8 Tablespoons Cream Cheese
  • 3 Tablespoons Ricotta Cheese
  • 2-½ Tablespoons Powdered Sugar
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 3 Tablespoons Milk
  • Canola Oil

Preparation

*Any fresh fruit of your choice will work, but berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries) are best because the liquid content is lower and makes for a better turn out.

1. Heat 1-inch of canola oil in a large saute pan (about 325 degrees F).

2. In a bowl, whisk-mix the cream cheese, ricotta, and 1 1/2 tablespoons of the powdered sugar until thoroughly blended.

3. Beat egg and milk together.

4. Place 1 1/2 tablespoons of cheese mix in the center of the back of each egg roll skin and place about 5 berries in the center of the cheese mixture.

5. Brush the egg wash around the edges of egg rolls skin and fold left and right sides of skin in about 1/2-inch, and then roll from back to front, ensuring that the roll is sealed. Like a burrito, more or less, except closed on top as well.

6. Place in oil and cook both sides until golden brown. Remove onto paper towels to drain for a few minutes.

7. Dust with cinnamon and sugar and top with whipped cream (if desired, of course).

these were really delicious and a big hit in my family. next time i’m going to add vanilla extract to the cheese mixture to make it a little more sweeter.

I enjoyed this last night at a friend’s Chinese New Year dinner. It was a big hit. She substitute cottage cheese for the ricotta and then added some chopped dark chocolate before wrapping them up. She fried them in about a 1/2-1 inch of canola oil in a cast iron pan for a few minutes until they were golden brown and served with some sweetened whipped cream. They were absolutely delicious and perfect with our Chinese-theme dinner.

These were a little bit time consuming, but overall they are very easy to make! They taste delicious and you can make them with whatever fruit you prefer! I definitely recommend when you’re looking for a new sweet to serve at a dinner party!
