Ingredients

For the Cheesecake Filling:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 large egg

For the Egg Rolls:

  • 12 egg roll wrappers
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 1/4 cup water (for sealing the egg rolls)

For the Toppings:

  • Fresh strawberries, sliced
  • Chocolate syrup or melted chocolate
  • Powdered sugar

Instructions

Preparing the Cheesecake Filling:

  1. Mix the Filling: In a large bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth. Add the granulated sugar, vanilla extract, sour cream, powdered sugar, and egg. Beat until all ingredients are well combined and the mixture is smooth.

Assembling the Egg Rolls:

  1. Prepare the Wrappers: Lay an egg roll wrapper on a clean surface with one corner pointing towards you (like a diamond shape).
  2. Add the Filling: Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the cheesecake filling onto the center of the wrapper.
  3. Fold the Wrapper: Fold the bottom corner of the wrapper over the filling, then fold in the sides. Roll up the wrapper tightly, sealing the top corner with a little water. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.

Frying the Egg Rolls:

  1. Heat the Oil: In a deep skillet or pot, heat vegetable oil to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Fry the Egg Rolls: Carefully add the egg rolls to the hot oil, a few at a time, and fry until golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Serving:

  1. Top and Serve: Arrange the cheesecake egg rolls on a serving platter. Drizzle with chocolate syrup or melted chocolate, sprinkle with powdered sugar, and garnish with fresh strawberries.
