Raspberry Almond Cream Egg rolls with Raspberry Dipping Sauce are an elegant holiday appetizer. A crispy deep fried egg roll wrapper filled with almond flavored cream cheese and raspberry sauce. Serve with extra raspberry dipping sauce on the side.
These delicious eggrolls are my entry in the Holiday Appetizer category of the TWIN DRAGON ASIAN WRAPPER RECIPE CONTEST. I was sent packages of their wonton and egg roll wrappers to create appetizers in holiday and game day categories.
One Saturday afternoon, my granddaughter came to my house to be a taste tester. We had so much fun creating different variations of this recipe. We chose the Raspberry Almond Cream Egg Rolls as the winner. This appetizer could be served at Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and the Fourth of July.
I have never tried to made eggrolls myself, and was so amazed at how easy the wrappers were to work with. They separated easily, and stayed rolled up with just a little water around the edges. They are vegan, non-gmo, contain no preservatives, and are very light.
Prepare the raspberry sauce first by combining sugar, cornstarch, and water. After this comes to a boil, stir in frozen raspberries, and reduce to a simmer until it begins to thicken. Remove from the stove and allow to cool.
For the filling, combine cream cheese and almond extract. Spread a heaping tablespoon onto lower part of the egg roll. Carefully, top center of cream cheese with a heaping teaspoon of the raspberry sauce.
Moisten edges of the wrapper with water and roll up to enclose the filling. Fry in heated oil for about 3 minutes until golden brown.
Transfer egg rolls to a serving platter, sprinkle with confectioner sugar, and serve with raspberry dipping sauce on the side.
