Strawberry Cheesecake Egg Rolls
This sweet treat gives you all the flavors of your favorite strawberry cheesecake but rolled up in an egg roll wrapper for a crispy and creamy dessert. Just like egg rolls are not just savory appetizers anymore, air fryers are great for desserts, too! Enjoy them warm, dusted with confectioners’ sugar.
Egg Rolls Ingredients
Cream Cheese: Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature.
Lemon Juice: Lemon juice is added to the cheesecake filling to help it keep its structure and give it a thicker texture. It will not give the filling a lemon flavor.
Strawberries: Use a pound of strawberries to dice for the cheesecake filling. Be sure to wash and hull the strawberries before cutting them. I prefer fresh strawberries, but you could definitely use frozen strawberries! Just be sure to let them thaw before adding them to the cream cheese mixture.
Egg Roll Wrappers: You will need 12 wrappers for this treat. You could get by with using wonton wrappers; however, they will be smaller and you may have to adjust the cooking time.
How to Deep-Fry Strawberry Cheesecake Egg Rolls
If you would rather fry the egg rolls in oil as opposed to cooking them in an air fryer, that works! First, heat up about an inch of oil to 375°F. Once the oil is hot, add the egg rolls 3 to 4 at a time, cooking 2-4 minutes per side.
Carefully place the fried egg rolls on a paper towel-lined paper plate to cool. Sprinkle them with confectioners’ sugar before serving.
How to Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Egg Rolls in the Oven
Another alternative way to make this dessert is to bake them in the oven. First, spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Next, place the filled egg roll wrappers onto the baking sheet. Bake at 425°F for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway through baking. Again, don’t forget to sprinkle some confectioners’ sugar on top before serving!
Please note that baking the egg rolls in the oven will not give you as crispy of a treat when compared to the other methods of cooking. They will end up a little chewier.
How to Store Dessert Egg Rolls
After you have made this dessert (no matter how you made them), you can store strawberry cheesecake egg rolls in a sealed container in the refrigerator. They will last for about 3 days. When you are ready to enjoy them, simply heat them up again in the air fryer.
Strawberry Cheesecake Egg Rolls
- One 8-ounce package cream cheese, room temperature
- ½ cup (100 g) granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 pound fresh strawberries, washed, hulled, diced
- 12 egg roll wrappers
- water, for wetting the edges of the egg roll wrappers
- confectioners' sugar, for topping
- To a medium mixing bowl, add cream cheese, sugar, and lemon juice. Using a hand mixer on medium speed, beat ingredients together until smooth and creamy. Fold in the strawberries.
- On a clean work surface, set out the egg roll wrappers. Working one at a time, top each wrapper with 2-3 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture.
- Use water to wet the edges of the egg roll wrapper and then tightly roll the egg roll wrapper around the cream cheese mixture.
- To roll, first, fold up the bottom corner to just over the cream cheese mixture. Roll once to fold in the cream cheese mixture.
- Second, fold in the right and left corners of the wrapper to the center, lightly pressing to seal. (You may need to add more water to the edges and corners to help the wrapper stay folded.) It should now look like an open envelope.
- Continue rolling until the filling is fully wrapped inside of the egg roll. Press to seal the edges.
- Spray or brush the outside of the egg roll with cooking oil.
- Air Fry at 400°F for 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown, flipping halfway through. You may need to work in batches, depending on the size of your air fryer.
- Transfer the egg rolls to a plate to cool.
- Dust with confectioners' sugar right before serving.
