New Recipe! Cheesecake Eggrolls!

Filed under: Cooking and Recipes — Tags: , , , — adventuresofsupermommy @ 11:13 pm

Craving cheesecake?  Don’t want to wait two days to make one from scratch?  This recipe might stave off the craving just a little bit until you can make the real thing.

Okay, I’ve been wanting to try this idea for a while, but finally got around to it.

Applebee’s used to sell fried cheesecake.  I almost cried when they told me they didn’t have them anymore.

This isn’t quite exactly them, but this is SUPER EASY and quick.  From start to finish, it took maybe ten minutes since I had the fryer out already for dinner.

  • 1 package cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 4 -5 eggroll wrappers
  • “glue” a little flour and water to seal up the edges
  • Shortening or Oil for deep frying

Beat the cream cheese and sugar thoroughly.  You’re not making frosting here so you don’t have to beat them too long.  I didn’t even soften the cream cheese, I took it directly out of the fridge.

Place a heavy dollop of this mixture in the center of the wrapper and roll it up like you would make an eggroll.  This does take some practice, but you’ll get it.  (sorry, I didn’t take pictures of the construction)  Seal it up.

I cranked up my Fry Daddy as high as it would go.  You don’t have to really cook the contents, you just want to crisp and brown the outside.

The powdered sugar is just for pretties!

Ta-Dah!!!

Additions I’m going to try very soon:

  • Add a little vanilla extract
  • Add a little lemon juice or grated lemon zest
  • Add a few chocolate chips
  • Make a strawberry sauce for dipping….

Holy crap, these are pretty good.  They’re not as good as real cheesecake, but you know what?  For as quick as they are, they’re awesome!

See ya’ll soon!

What a Long, Busy Weekend

Gods, I’m tired.  Got a lot done over the weekend, though.  I made pancakes Sunday morning like this:

Yes, I had to interrupt hubby's breakfast to take a photo.

Yes, I had to interrupt hubby’s breakfast to take a photo.

Then, after cleaning up in the house and in the yard and in the garage a little bit, Kaylee got her sandbox.  I think the picture says it all.

And today, we went to Babies R Us to get diapers, etc…  and a woman in the parking lot complimented how cute Kaylee was.  She didn’t see Aby at the time, and I was loading the kids into the car anyway, so I picked up the carrier so she could see.  She asked their ages, and I told her (21 months and 2 months) and this is the kicker.  She said, “And you’re pregnant again?!”  I mean, the woman didn’t take the time to think about what she was saying.  She didn’t do the math that I have an infant right there and wouldn’t have time to get pregnant enough to show in such a short time, much less lose pregnancy weight…  I’m trying not to be offended, really.  Psh. I mean, I don’t think I look pregnant…  maybe a little soft around the middle, but…  *pouts*

Oh, and I managed to break my sewing machine.  I’ve got to try to get it working again.
