For the Filling:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

For the Rolls:

  • 1 package (about 12 ounces) puff pastry sheets, thawed if frozen
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)

For Dipping Sauce:

  • Sweet chili sauce or soy sauce for serving


  1. Preheat Oven:
  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  1. Prepare Filling:
  • In a mixing bowl, combine softened cream cheese, finely chopped green onions, soy sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, and ground black pepper. Mix until well combined.
  1. Roll Out Puff Pastry:
  • Roll out the puff pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface. If using pre-rolled sheets, unfold them.
  1. Spread Filling:
  • Spread the cream cheese filling evenly over the surface of the puff pastry sheets, leaving a small border around the edges.
  1. Roll into Logs:
  • Starting from one edge, carefully roll the puff pastry sheets into logs. If there are seams, pinch them to seal.
  1. Chill Rolls:
  • Place the rolled logs in the refrigerator for about 15-20 minutes. Chilling makes it easier to slice and handle the rolls.
  1. Slice into Rounds:
  • Remove the chilled logs from the refrigerator and slice them into rounds, each about 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick.
  1. Arrange on Baking Sheet:
  • Arrange the slices on the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between each roll.
  1. Brush with Egg Wash:
  • Brush the tops of the rolls with the beaten egg. This gives the rolls a golden and glossy finish when baked.
  1. Bake to Golden Perfection:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes or until the rolls are puffed up and golden brown.
  2. Cool Slightly:
    • Allow the Cream Cheese Rangoon Rolls to cool slightly on the baking sheet before transferring them to a serving platter.
  3. Serve with Dipping Sauce:
    • Serve the rolls with your choice of dipping sauce, such as sweet chili sauce or soy sauce.

These Cream Cheese Rangoon Rolls are a delightful combination of creamy filling and flaky pastry. These rolls add a taste explosion that is reminiscent of your favorite Chinese takeout, whether served as an appetizer or a snack. Ideal for enjoying on your own or sharing! 🥟🧀✨
