spring roll wrappers
oil for frying
Cut the cheesecake into uniform pieces approximately 1 x 3 inches in size. (Large cheesecakes will produce about 30 slices for deep frying.)
Lightly moisten each spring roll wrapper with egg wash (egg mixed with milk). Blot off excess egg wash with some paper towel. Place each piece of cheesecake in the center of wrapper. Fold the top of wrapper down over cheesecake, and both sides toward the middle. Roll each piece of cheesecake toward you until it is completely rolled up. Gently squeeze "egg roll" to make sure dough is sealed completely.
In a deep frying pan, heat at least 3 inches of oil to 365ºF. Dip corner of 1 roll in the heated oil. If oil sizzles, it is ready. If not, heat oil longer. When oil is ready, gently release the rolls into the oil and allow
to brown lightly, approximately 10 seconds. Using tongs, remove golden-brown rolls from oil. Place each roll in bowl of cinnamon sugar and coat well. Place deep-fried slices of cheesecake on paper towels to cool
slightly before serving. These will be very hot. Allow to cool at least 5 minutes before serving. They can be enjoyed warm or cold.
*Note: Cinnamon sugar can be made by mixing 2 cups sugar with 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon.
