Baked Mini Spring Rolls with hint of cream cheese fillings

These treats were a lot of fun to make. Though I had to admit these mini rolls were very time consuming but the results were worth the time put in. I recently baked a carrot yeasted bread filled with cream cheese and I thought I tried using the same cream cheese filling to fill these mini spring rolls. I first tried a few mini spring roll samples before I ventured into working on the entire batch.

I also dipped a small batch of the mini spring rolls with melted chocolate, hmmmm they are pretty tasty too. That will be my next batch with better preparation on the right chocolate chips ingredient. For now, I focused on the cream cheese fillings.

BTW: I am not a big fan of deep frying therefore I opted to bake these rolls and they are as crispy as those of deep fried.. hey don't need the extra calories :)





Here is the recipe.

Cream Cheese Fillings:
4 oz cream cheese
2 1/2 Tbs corn flour
6 Tbs sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Spring Roll Pastry
1 package of Spring Roll Pastry Sheets (store bought). Package contains 25 sheets of 8 inch by 8 inch square sheets.
3 Tbs of flour. (for sealing of mini rolls on pastry )

1. In a mixer, mix all the cream cheesse filling ingredients for about 10 mins until well blended. Stored in air tight container in fridge until ready to use.
2. In a small small, mix flour with water to make a wet flour paste, sticky to the touch but not too watery.
3. Cut each sheet in 4 quarters. Keep pastry in covered containers while working on each individual mini spring roll.
4. On each quarter sheet, spoon 1/2 tsp cream cheese mixture and smears on the pastry sheet, fold and tuck roll into mini roll. Seal end with a tiny dab of wet flour. Store each mini roll in container with lid.
5. Heat up oven at 350 degree F.
6. Line all the mini spring rolls on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
7. Bake for 20 minutes or until mini rolls are golden.
8. Let mini rolls cool and store in air-tight containers.
